Boarding & Grooming

Boarding

Prytania Veterinary Hospital is pleased to offer boarding services for cats, dogs, and even exotic animals such as birds, ferrets, rabbits, hamsters, and guinea pigs.

Our kennel technicians are trained to provide the very best care for your pet during their stay with us. All of our boarding facilities are air-conditioned and indoors. Dogs are walked outside three times a day and enjoy a complimentary bath and ear cleaning with a stay of three nights or more. We can administer medications, perform treatments, and provide any veterinary or grooming needs during your pets' stay.

We can accommodate any size dog, from Chihuahuas to Great Danes. We have a separate, quiet room for cats away from the dogs.

We feed Science Diet food products (included in the price) but you are welcome to bring your own food.

Please feel free to stop by anytime for a tour. If you would like to make a reservation, you can call us at 504-899-2828 or request a reservation online. You can save time when dropping off your pet by submitting your boarding form online.

Reservations are recommended, especially during the busy holiday season, but we often have availability same day.

For the health of all, pets must be up-to-date on vaccinations and have had a negative intestinal parasite screen within the past year. Please see below for vaccine requirements. All pets are administered a Capstar tablet upon arrival to preserve a flea-free environment, which is an additional charge.

Grooming

Baths:

Our specially formulated shampoos remove dirt, debris, and odor leaving your pet feeling fresh and revitalized.

We carry highly effective shampoos and conditioners formulated by board-certified veterinary dermatologists. Veterinarians are available to consult with you about your pet’s skin condition and recommend a medicated bath that best suits your pet’s needs. A complimentary nail trim and ear cleaning are included with a bath.

Baths are available Monday through Friday. For the health of all, we ask that your pet be up-to-date on vaccinations (see below for list of required vaccines). Reservations are recommended, especially during the busy holiday seasons, but we often have same day availability. Please drop your pet off between 8:00 am and 10:00 am, and they should be ready for pick-up after 3:00 pm.

If you would like to make a reservation, please call us at 504-899-2828 or request a reservation online.

Shavedowns:

Shavedowns are by appointment only Mondays through Fridays. Our groomer will do a basic "military" clip, i.e. the clip will be like a buzz cut and will not shave the head, legs or tail.

We can also do shavedowns for pets that require sedation.

Please call 504-899-2828 for more information or to schedule an appointment.

These other grooming services can be performed while you wait and do not require an appointment:

  • nail trim
  • ear flush
  • anal gland expression
  • clip mats
