Conneaut Lake Veterinary Hospital Pet Boarding

Our compassionate kennel assistants take pride in providing your pet with loving care. They provide the proper food as well as walks outside for an appropriate time, and they work to keep each pet clean, dry, and comfortable. 

We provide Hill’s Science Diet maintenance food for every boarder. If you prefer, or if your pet is on a special or prescription diet, you may bring your pet’s own food from home.

Your dog will be walked 4-5 times a day.

Cats are boarded in their own separate ward for a peaceful stay. They are also removed from their kennels for extended periods and placed in a large room for daily activity and enrichment.

We are here to help.

We are primarily a hospital that offers the convenience of boarding and can provide any treatment needed. If you have any questions or concerns before you drop off your pet or while you’re away, call us at 814-382-5446.

No Sunday or Holiday pickups.

Dr. Wendi Waid and Dr. Becky Stanton are highly qualified and extremely caring veterinarians. You may check your pet out at any time during our regular hospital hours.

Emergency Phone Number: You will be asked to provide us with the phone number of someone (such as yourself) who can authorize medical treatment should the need arise while your pet is here boarding.

Please bring with you any current medications or special dietary food so our staff will be able to medicate your pet(s). You may also bring their favorite toy and blanket!

If fleas are present, flea preventative will be discussed with the owner.

We provide bedding and dishes to offer all the comforts of home.

Senior Pets

We understand as pets get older, they require more movement to keep their joints limber. We try to accommodate their needs by taking them out and walking them more frequently, as older animals are more prone to incontinence. Geriatric mats are provided in our kennel, and our staff will pamper your geriatric pet. Our experienced staff can also administer any daily medications your pet requires.


Our kennel staff will give your pet all of the TLC during their stay! Cleaning, feeding, and walking are just the beginning of what they provide for your pet. Felines are exercised daily indoors, and dogs are walked in our yard four times a day. On the last day of their stay, you may also choose to have your pet pampered with a toenail trim, ear cleaning, and bath.
