When it comes to boarding pets at Animal Medical Hospital & 24 Hour Urgent Care, we take ourselves pretty seriously. You have entrusted us with one of your most precious possessions, and we fully intend to treat them as such. 

The same care extends to our medical boarding patients. Whether you need us to care for a pet with diabetes or a special senior citizen while you are away, our team is here for your pet’s needs. If you need help with your pet with cancer while you are away, we are also able to help. Our boarding for chemotherapy patients and other pets with cancer is something you can count on.

Why Boarding for Chemotherapy Patients is Different

When your pet has cancer, you have a lot on your mind. It can be even more stressful if you have to leave them for any reason. Rest assured, though, that your pet is in good hands.

Our medical boarding for chemotherapy patients and other pets with cancer has lots of advantages over traditional boarding facilities. These advantages include:

Careful attention to your pet — When a pet has cancer, it is even more important to pay attention to things like appetite, bathroom habits, energy level, and signs of pain. Boarding for chemotherapy patients includes careful attention to these types of things.

Decreased stress — We are able to ensure a calm, comfortable environment for our boarding patients. In instances where things like a mild anti-anxiety medication is necessary, we are able to provide this with your permission. 

Ability to medicate — Your pet may need daily medications, and we are able to ensure that this is continued appropriately. In some instances, cancer treatments like chemotherapy may be continued without interruption during your absence. 

Safe environment — Pets who are undergoing chemotherapy may not have fully functioning immune systems. Our facilities are sanitized with extra precautions being taken to reduce the risk of exposure to disease. 

Medical interventions as necessary — if your pet experiences any changes in medical status or is having any complications such as nausea, we are able to address those in a timely and effective manner. 

We are happy to provide you with some peace of mind if you need to be away from your furry cancer patient. Please contact us for more information regarding our medical boarding services for chemotherapy patients and pets with special needs of all kinds.
