Important Canine & Feline Boarding Information
Hanover Veterinary Hospital is happy to board all canine and feline pets, even if they aren’t our regular patients. Other important items to note before you plan their stay include:
- Dogs must be up-to-date on rabies, distemper, and bordetella vaccines before boarding. The canine influenza vaccine is also recommended, though not required.
- Cats must be up-to-date on their vaccines for rabies and feline distemper.
- All cats and dogs must test negative in a fecal exam within 12 months of their stay to be admitted and must be flea free. We recommend that all boarding pets be on a flea preventative.
- If your pet is overdue for certain vaccinations, we can vaccinate them at drop-off to get them up to date.
- Medication can be dispensed to pets with ongoing medical issues during their stay at no extra charge.
- Items from home are permitted for your pet's comfort.
We Offer Bird Boarding
Does Polly want a place to stay too? We proudly offer boarding for your avian friends along with cats and dogs.
In order to board your bird with us, they must be dropped off in their cage with all their supplies, including food, medication, and toys. Bird cages are kept in employee areas of our Cedar Lake hospital, including the employee lounge and reception area, to ensure social interaction. Birds are monitored by our kennel staff and cared for according to your instructions. For safety reasons, birds are not permitted out of their cages while boarding.

We came in as a walk in. Scooby had an ear infection and his eye had swelled up. Hanover treated him as if he was a long time patient. His eye was back to normal the next day. We are still treating the ear infection. But he's back to his old self. Thank you for such great care. -Timothy M.
