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. A doctor and experienced technicians are on the premises monitoring your pets 24 hours a day.

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 flush with a stay of three nights or more. We can accommodate any size dog, from Chihuahuas to Great Danes. We have a separate ward for sick animals and a quiet room for felines only.

We feed Science Diet food products, included in the price, but you are welcome to bring your own. We can also administer your pet’s medications or perform any medical treatments for an additional fee.

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 printing and filling out your boarding form. You can also e-mail us your completed form.

Reservations are recommended, especially during the busy holiday season. 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. All pets are administered a Capstar tablet upon arrival to preserve a flea-free environment, which is an additional charge.

Grooming

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 for pets with skin issues. 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 flush are included with each 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. Please drop your pet off between 8:00 am and 10:00 am, and they should be ready for pick-up between 3:00 and 6:00.

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

Shavedowns:

Shavedowns are by appointment only Tuesdays through Thursdays. 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, call for more information (504-899-2828).
