Pet Boarding

Finding high quality animal boarding services, in the Madison area, where your pet can receive proper care and attention can be a difficult and daunting task to arrange when you are at work or when you leave town for an extended period of time. At Whitworth Animal Clinic, we offer day care as well as extended boarding service for dogs and cats. Our indoor boarding facility is climate controlled. Each pet is hosted in an individual kennel or run depending on their size. Because Dr. Whitworth and his staff at Whitworth Animal Clinic are known throughout the Madison area for excellent veterinary services, you can be sure that your pet will be given excellent care and personal attention during his or her stay with us.

All of our dog boarders stay in our Bed and Biscuit facility while cat boarders stay in our Cat-Nip Cottage facility. Dogs are exercised in an enclosed outdoor area three to four times daily. We also provide blankets, towels, and food for every pet that stays with us. We can accommodate any unique diet considerations, but you are welcome to bring your pet’s own food and special instructions if you prefer. However, when it comes to your pet’s favorite toy or bone, we politely request that you leave those at home. We cannot guarantee that the toy or bone will not be lost during your pet’s stay.

To ensure the safety of other boarding pets, we require that all animal boarders must be current on their vaccinations. All animals must be up to date on their six month bordetella (kennel cough) vaccinations. The required annual vaccines for dogs in day care or overnight boarding are:

Rabies, Canine Influenza (CIV), and DHLP-P-C which includes:

  • Canine distemper
  • Hepatitis
  • Adenovirus-2
  • Leptospirosis
  • Parainfluenza
  • Parvovirus
  • Coronavirus

For cats in day care or boarding overnight, the required vaccines include rabies and FD/FVR-CP-C, which covers:

  • Feline Distemper
  • Feline Rhinotracheitis
  • Calicivirus
  • Pneumonitis
  • Chlamydia

All pets must be dropped off and picked up during our regular office hours Monday through Friday.
