A Home Away From Home
Nobody wants to leave their pets while they go out of town, and even just the thought can be stressful. This feeling is multiplied if your pet is ill or recovering from surgery. At Statesboro Bulloch Regional Veterinary Hospital, we are here to alleviate these concerns.
We provide complete general boarding services for all of our patients, and medical boarding services for pets with conditions that standard boarding centers may not be equipped to take care of, and VIP boarding for those who would benefit from a calmer and quieter experience.
If you are looking for cat or dog boarding in Statesboro and Bulloch County, look no further.
Boarding: A Typical Day
Every morning your dog has the opportunity to go and stretch their legs in our indoor run or get some fresh air in our fenced in yard before breakfast. While they are outside, their kennels are cleaned, sanitized, and provided with fresh linens.
If dogs are physically capable and willing, we walk them on a regular basis.
You can feel comfortable knowing your dog will have supervision during their entire stay with us – both during walks and while they rest. In the evening, dinner is served and then we have one last walk before bedtime.
Your cat will be fed according to your instructions and their requirements, to ensure their routine doesn't differ from home.
We provide daily one-on-one interaction with kitties (if they want it) including play, snuggles, and pets. Litter boxes are checked, cleaned, and disinfected repeatedly throughout the day.
Additionally, we refresh linens and clean your kitty's room daily. Our cat boarding area is separated from the dog area to ensure your kitty feels relaxed and safe while they stay with us.
Your pet will be supervised by our expert veterinarians and nurses, who will keep a close eye on them and disperse any medications. All required medications will be given to your pet at the same time they would receive it at home.
VIP BoardingIf your pet is a bit more sensitive, or you think they will benefit from a quieter environment than a typical boarding facility, we offer VIP boarding services. Our VIP guests will have a kennel that is separate from other pets, providing a calmer, quieter experience. They are given the same amount of love and attention, just in an environment designed to make them feel more comfortable.

- How should I prepare for my pet's stay?
Each animal is different. To prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.
Step 1: Contact us to get started
Call us to book, and to discuss details about your pet and your boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to to coordinate your booking.
Pets must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.
Step 2: Book a trial stay
We want to be absolutely sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your pet's temperament and make sure they fit in with the pack.
Step 3: Set your pet up for success
On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.
Spend some extra time with your pet beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful and confident during the separation.
- What do you feed animals that don't have their own food?
For pets that are not on a special diet, we provide high-quality pet food.
