Pet Boarding

Pet Boarding at The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt in Summerfield, NC

Whether you're called away on business and just can't take your dog along, or your grandmother's coming to visit and she's deathly allergic to your cat, sometimes it's best if your pet stays away from home for a few days. At The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt, we offer superior pet boarding services for all of our furry patients. Whether your pet stays with us for a night or a week, you can feel secure that it will be safe and happy with our caring team.

Why Boarding at the Veterinarian's Office?

It might seem easier to ask a friend or relative to care for your pet while it's away from home, but pet boarding with us has some distinct advantages. Some of the reasons it's better for us to care for your dog or cat are:

  • Proper exercise and diet - We have scheduled times for pets to run and play outside, making sure they get enough exercise every day they're with us. In addition, we're specialists at knowing the healthy diet for your pet and what treats it shouldn't have. It's not likely your cousin will do the same for you.
  • Professional attention - When your pet stays with us, our job is to take care of it. When it stays with your neighbor, it will just be hanging around the house. Sure, it will probably be carefully watched and let outdoors a few times a day, but your neighbor's primary attention won't be on your dog or cat. In our boarding facility, we don't do anything else.
  • Medical care - If something goes wrong and your pet has a medical emergency, it's a great feeling to know that we're in the same building as a fantastic veterinary team. Emergency medical care is literally steps away, and one of our vets is always on call. In addition, if your pet has any special dietary or medical needs, such as giving prescription drugs or injections, our professional team has the education and experience to do so.

Feedback from our clients

  • "I have been taking my 16 year old lab, Oscar, to this vet since he came to me in 2004, and I wouldn't take any of my dogs anywhere else! They are so wonderful with both pets and people. I would recommend any of the doctors and staff to anyone."

  • "We have been going to another vet for years. We wanted to have our year old Wheaten Terrier, Rylee spayed by laparoscopy so she would have less pain and be back to her usual activity in 2-3 days instead of 10-14 days. Our vet does the traditional spay. We had a consult meet and greet with Dr. Courtney Pierce. She answered all our questions and so friendly and professional. They have a state of the art OR suite. Rylee did great. On post op day three she spotted a squirrel and did an all out chase with no ill effects! All the staff were great."

  • "I love Dr. Jernigan at AHLB and would never take my dog anywhere else! The staff is excellent with animals and always professional, courteous and respectful to owners. I have trusted this animal hospital for all of my dog's care, including check ups, surgeries (she's had three!) and for boarding when we have to go out of town. Every experience I have had here has been wonderful and I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a veterinary office for their furry children!."
