Boarding & Bathing

Dog BoardingWhether your pet is just coming for a day at the spa or needs to stay in our kennel while you are away, we are here to make your pet's experience pleasant and comfortable. Our dedicated kennel staff is ever alert to your pet's needs. Our clients find comfort in knowing that veterinarians are supervising our kennel and are on-site every day to address any issues that may arise while their pets are at Animal Medical Hospital.

Our number one priority is maintaining a healthy and safe kennel environment.  To this end we require that all pets that enter our kennel are up to date on required vaccinations, have been screened for intestinal parasites in the last year and are free of external parasites, like fleas and ticks. If your pet is in need of vaccines and/or a fecal examination, we are more than happy to provide these services.

  • Negative fecal examination in the past year


  • Vaccinations for FVRCP (feline rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia) and Rabies within one to three years depending on vaccine used

Boarding Services

Pet BoardingWe want your pet's boarding visit to our Saint Petersburg, FL veterinary hospital to be as pleasant as possible. When scheduling an appointment for boarding, please allow about 15 to 20 minutes for a staff member to look over your dog, cats and/or exotic pet and review his or her care with you. If your pet is having any problems or issues, and you would like an examination by one of our doctors, please let our staff know upon admission.

It is very important that we have a phone number to reach you at while you are gone. If you will be unreachable by phone, please provide us with the name and phone number of a person who may authorize medical treatment on your behalf.

Bring in any medications that your pet will need during his or her stay. If you forget your medications, we are able to dispense additional medications at our usual fee.

If your pet has special dietary needs and/or a sensitive stomach, please bring his or her food with you. We will provide food, both dry and canned, for pets who do not have special dietary needs.

Please limit the toys to those which will not be too badly missed if they are lost. We will do our best to return your pets toys to you at the end of his or her boarding stay

We request that you do not bring bedding for your pet. Our kennel is equipped with comfortable, easily laundered bedding that is changed daily, or more frequently as needed

We want your pet sent home clean and healthy. For us to do this, time is needed on his or her go-home day for bathing, drying and brushing. We will arrange a pick-up time with you that will allow us to do this, and we request that you call us if you need to change your pickup time.

      Dr.Clark is always a pleasure to see! He treats our Lola with so much love and respect. English Bulldogs are a particularly special breed with many specific medical ailments, and I believe he truly understands her and the breed itself. He never rushes us, and always answers all of our questions! One of the best Vetenarian Doctors we have ever had and we always recommend him to everyone. Also, the staff there is always super friendly and loves to see Lola :-) Thank you!!
