Pet Boarding at West Hills Veterinary Centre
At West Hills Veterinary Centre, we always treat your pets like they were our own. When you have to go out of town and can’t take your best friend along with you, we want you to be confident that your pet is well-loved and cared for with us. We also know that certain pet owners want to constantly call and check in on their pets—we highly encourage this!
Our boarding features include:
- Indoor kennels
- Covered outdoor runs, where pets can frolic when the weather permits
- Large grassy fenced-in backyard for exercise and play
- Balls, toys, etc.
- Individual leash walks are offered
When you bring your pet in for boarding, feel welcome to bring their favorite toys or bed to make them feel comfortable—otherwise we can provide these items. Please note that dogs need to be up-to-date on rabies, Bordetella (two weeks in advance), distemper, hepatitis and parvo, with a current fecal administered by a veterinarian. Cats need to be current on rabies, fecal, distemper and LUEK.
Grooming Services at West Hills Veterinary Centre
West Hills Veterinary Centre now offers a complete range of basic bathing and professional grooming services for dogs and cats of all shapes and sizes. We have recently added a professional pet groomer to our experienced staff which means we can now offer specialty breed-specific grooming services in addition to our comprehensive bathing services you already know and love!
Our Professional Grooming Services include:
- Basic bathing
- Medicated baths
- Nail trims
- Anal gland expression
- Basic shaves and cuts
- Breed-specific specialty cuts
Along with making your best friend feel fresh and like a million bucks, grooming has health benefits, too. It helps decrease skin conditions and allergies, prevents and eliminates parasites and maintains cleanliness of genital areas. It is also very beneficial during the winter season to help manage those rain-soaked and muddy pets. If you’ve got a puppy, we highly recommend introducing it to grooming early, so they get accustomed to it later in life.
Because of our medical and grooming integration, we can also provide sedated grooming options for both canines and felines using the expertise of both our doctors, technician staff, and groomer.
Pets that are scheduled for grooming appointments must be current on all vaccines. If your pet needs a vaccine update, call us today to schedule your appointment.
