We Take Care of Your Family Pet When You’re Away
We know that there are times when you must travel and are not able to take your family pets with you.
Four Rivers Veterinary Clinic is happy to provide both overnight boarding as well as day boarding for dogs and cats.
Overnight Boarding and Day Boarding for Dogs and Cats
Our staff is available to provide TLC for your pets seven days a week.
We are also able to care for pets who might need medicating, whether it be oral medications, or more complex things like insulin injections or subcutaneous fluids.
Boarding Guidelines Regarding Vaccines
All pets who board must be current on their vaccines given by a veterinarian. Vaccines that are purchased over the counter cannot be guaranteed to be “in date” or are properly stored/administered correctly, for these reasons we do not accept owner self vaccination for boarding purposes.
The following are our vaccine requirements for pets boarding in our facility:
- Dogs: All dogs must be current on their Rabies and Distemper Parvo vaccines. Also, a kennel cough vaccine (Bordatella) must have been given within the last 6 months.
- Because of the recent Canine Influenza outbreaks across the country and the recent local positive dog we are adding Canine Influenza to our required vaccinations. This vaccine is available as a bivalent killed vaccine and the initial two doses are given 3 to 4 weeks apart and then it is an annual vaccine booster.
- Cats: All cats must be current on their Rabies and their FVRCP vaccines. Feline Leukemia vaccine is recommended but not required.
- Any boarding animals coming from other facilities will need to have written proof of vaccinations from their veterinary clinic to us 48 hours prior to their animals being admitted to board.
Food and Bedding While Boarding
Owners may bring the pet’s own food and bedding, or we are able to provide those items for their pets. We feed Science Diet Feline Maintenance for the cats, and for dogs Science Diet ID , an intestinal formula designed to decrease stress colitis, for the dogs.

Reservations are always required for our boarding guests. Please have your pets arrive between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. For questions about boarding please call us at 541-889-7776
