We provide cat boarding as a service to our clients. Unlike other boarding facilities in the Metairie area, there are no dogs present to disturb your special feline. There are veterinary staff members available to provide medication or other treatment your cat needs while you are away, and even if your cat is healthy, we can address any potential issues that may arise. We take special care for cats who prefer privacy, offering covered kennels and a place to hide if it makes your cat feel more comfortable. Feliway pheromone diffusers are now running in our kennel to help naturally comfort your cat.
We also offer individual playtime as an additional service when requested. This may be highly interactive play, brushing, or solitary exercise in a private room. Some cats may be playful at home but reluctant to play at the clinic, so sometimes the opportunity to stretch their legs is all they want. For those cats who may not be responsive to play time, you can consider reserving a double-sized kennel to allow them exercise without direct interaction.
We offer a large variety of cat foods, including most prescription diets, but you are welcome to bring your own to ensure that your cat’s diet remains the same. You may also bring familiar items, like bedding, to make your cat feel at home.
Annual veterinary examination and both rabies and FVRCP (upper respiratory disease) vaccines must be up-to-date for all pets that board with us. This helps protect your pet, other animals, and our staff from contagious disease. Proof of examination and vaccinations is required. Your cat must be a current patient of Cat Hospital before booking a boarding appointment.
Pets may be dropped off and picked up during regular business hours Monday through Saturday. Special arrangements can be made for Sunday pick-ups.
Regular updates on your cat will be provided at your request, and we will give you a report on how your cat adjusted to boarding. Some cats do fine here with us, but others would benefit from care by a pet sitter.
