We understand how stressful it can be to leave your pet when you go out of town, especially if they are ill or recovering from a procedure or surgery. We at Reelfoot Animal Hospital want to put your mind at ease.
We offer full general pet boarding services to all of our patients, as well as medical boarding services for pets with conditions that standard boarding facilities may not be able to accommodate.
Pets must be up to date with all vaccinations, and proof of vaccination will be required.
Every morning, the dogs go outside to our outdoor run to get some fresh air before breakfast. Their kennels are cleaned, disinfected, and restocked with fresh linens while they are outside.
We walk the dogs who stay with us regularly, depending on their physical capacity and ability.
Your dog will also be supervised throughout their stay with us, both during walks and when they are resting. Dinner is served in the evening, and we go for one last walk before bedtime.
Your cat will be fed according to your instructions and their needs, ensuring that their routine is the same as it is at home.
We offer daily one-on-one interaction with kitties (if they want it!), which includes play, snuggles, and pets. Throughout the day, litter boxes are checked, cleaned, and disinfected.
We also change the linens and clean your cat's room daily. Our cat boarding area is separate from the dog boarding area to ensure that your kitty feels relaxed and safe while staying with us.
Our expert veterinarians and nurses will supervise your pet and administer medications while keeping a close eye on them. Any medications will be given to your pet on the same schedule that they are used to at home.
We're serious animal lovers, and our whole team enjoys giving our boarders all the attention and care they deserve while they're staying with us.

We want to be sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your pet's temperament and make sure they fit in with the pack.
On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.
Spend some extra time with your pet beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful, and confident during the separation.
For pets that are not on a special diet, we can provide high-quality pet food that is appropriate for the size and breed of your pet. An additional fee may apply.
