Boarding for small animals

At Compassion Veterinary Center of New Paltz, we board dogs, cats, hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and other small rodents. If you have never boarded your animal before, it can be a very nerve-wracking experience – both for you and your pet. When boarding with us, we require that all guests must be current on their rabies, distemper, and Bordetella vaccines and be free of intestinal and external parasites. Any pets found to have parasites and/or fleas will be treated at the client's expense.

Our boarding service is offered to our clients only and if you are not currently a client with us, we ask that you schedule an appointment prior to boarding to meet with our veterinarians and establish a relationship.

Get answers to your questions

Do I need to bring my own bedding or food and water bowls?

Not at all! We have plenty of food, water bowls and fluffy comforters, blankets and towels to keep your pets comfortable.

My pet is on a special food; is it OK for me to bring it when they board?

If your pet is a picky eater or is on a special diet, we encourage you to bring their own food. For those pets that will not be bringing their own food, we serve Science Diet Sensitive Stomach dry and canned for cats and dogs.

Can I board my hamsters or rabbit?

Of course! Not only do we board cats and dogs, but also hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, and other small rodents. We ask, however, that you bring their food, bedding, cage, and any other accessories.
