Dog Boarding

Whether you are headed out of town for an extended period of time or just need your pup to be watched for the workday/evening, Lake Forest Animal Hospital is happy to help with boarding. During our building renovation we added a brand new and customized dog boarding wing to our hospital, and pets love it!

The new dog runs, which feature an open and bar-less design, have heated flooring- great for pets who love to snooze and older dogs who have arthritis! Our integrated flushing system helps us to keep this boarding area clean and smelling fresh!

In our smaller dog areas we have lots of floor space where dogs can play. Every dog is walked a minimum of three times a day, each time getting to interact with a trained technician who keeps an eye out for any signs of illness while giving lots of attention and love!

Because we are a hospital, during business hours all boarders are under medical supervision. At drop-off, your pet is briefly examined by a veterinary technician free of charge. If there is any concern about your pet’s well-being during boarding it is immediately brought to the attention of a veterinarian. Because we have a trained and experienced hospital staff, we also offer medical boarding for geriatric and intensive-care pets, like diabetics or pets with heart disease. These pets are monitored regularly by our veterinary technicians, who administer any medications that your high-needs pet may require.

At drop-off, you can indicate that you’d like your pet to receive these Extras:

  • Extra bedding
  • Cuddle time
  • Cuddle with brush
  • Extra Walks
  • Biscuits for Boarders
  • Bath and Nail Trim
