Pet Boarding FAQs


Leaving your pet behind as you travel can be difficult. Finding a trustworthy boarding facility will make the whole process easier. At Magnolia Animal Hospital in Raleigh, NC, our team provides pet boarding for your dog or cat while you travel. We will ensure that your pet is safe and happy so that you can have peace of mind while you are away. Here are some commonly asked questions about pet boarding.

What should I bring?

Before you board your pet, think about its daily routine and what items it needs. You can bring your pets food and any medications or supplements it needs. If your pet has any comfort items, you can bring those as well.

What vaccinations do my pets need to have?

All vaccinations need to be current. For a dog, that includes distemper, rabies, canine parvovirus, and canine hepatitis. For a cat, this includes rabies, feline distemper, feline calicivirus, and feline herpesvirus type 1. If your pets have a different veterinarian, you need to bring proof of the vaccination, or have it faxed to us.

Will you give my pets their medication?

If your pet has a medical condition, we will administer its medication at no additional charge as long as you provide the medication. If your pet gets sick while boarding with us, our veterinarian is trained to diagnose and treat your pet.

What types of accommodations are available?

We provide cat condos that are quiet and relaxing. For dogs, we have large boarding kennels with different sized cages. Your pet will get plenty of socialization and attention while staying with us, including a doggy activity center.

Will my pets get play time?

Your dog will be walked multiple times a day and given love and attention as well. Your cat will get lots of love and attention as well. At our animal clinic, we treat your pet like our own.
