Grooming and boarding services have been part of our services at Springhurst Animal Hospital for over 20 years. However, staffing challenges have recently plagued much of the service industry, including veterinary clinics, and we are no exception. We struggle to maintain staffing for kennel, assistants, bathers and have recently unexpectedly lost our groomer. In order for this to not impact the quality of care and medicine we perform, we are forced to limit our boarding and discontinue grooming services, starting immediately, and for the near future. WE APOLOGIZE, BUT ALL GROOMING APPOINTMENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELED. WE WILL NO LONGER BE TAKING BOARDING RESERVATIONS. We understand this is distressing and inconvenient, especially for clients who have pets with anxiety and stress issues. We are recommending that you contact St. Matthews Animal Clinic at 502-895-8100. They have 3 groomers on staff and can accommodate pets who need sedation. We will continue to provide superior medical care to your pets, and will assist you with any copy of your pet’s vaccines needed for your new groomer. Please call with any questions. Thank you for your continued support.
Our boarding facility is a full service operation. Your pet can stay with us for the day (Day Boarding or Day Care) or for the night (Boarding). We have a 1/2 acre fenced in yard for play times. We provide bedding, Purina EN food, and two walks during the day on our property. You are welcome and even encouraged to bring your pet's own food to keep his diet as consistent as possible.
We are not able to accept personal bedding, bowls, toys, collars or leashes during your pet's stay. If your pet takes a Controlled Drug, please talk to our staff when you make your reservation. If they take Gabapentin, Tramadol,, Buprrenex, or Keppra we will dispense the medication on a pill-by-pill basis from our stock and it will be put on your invoice. Any other Controlled Drug cannot be given.
Day Boarders can be dropped off or picked up any time during regular business hours.
Boarders can be dropped-off Monday-Friday, noon-5:45 pm, Saturday, 11-1:45 pm. The early drop-off fee is $20. They can be picked-up Monday-Saturday before 11. The late pick-up fee is $5 per hour. The late fee is waived for Boarders getting Bathed or Groomed on their last day.
The pet care staff at Springhurst Animal Hospital pays special attention to every individual pet in our boarding facility. Our boarding staff observes every detail of your pet's stay, including appetite, medication administration, and elimination habits. This helps us provide the needed care if any of your pet's behaviors change.
To help make your pet's stay more comfortable we offer extra activities, such as playtimes, individual time with a staff member, extra walks, and snack times, at an additional cost.
Prior to making your reservation, please talk to our staff to confirm your pet is up-to-date on Flu, Bordatella, Distemper/Parvo, and Rabies vaccinations as well as fecal testing for internal parasites. We need to guarantee all pets are staying in a medically safe environment.
Call our office at 502-326-2975 to make your reservation, then complete your boarding directions on this website using the Boarding Check-in Form. Include your cell phone number on this form and we will send you photos during your pet's stay with us. Completion of this form will also make your drop off/check in much smoother and faster.
