Pet Boarding

Far Hills Animal Clinic has been providing pet boarding services for our patients for almost 40 years. Our caring kennel staff has been trained to handle the care of all pets, including healthy adolescents, to diabetic patients, and even pets who have just undergone surgery. You can rest easy knowing that your pet is only a few feet away from a veterinarian during their stay. When boarding your animal who requires special care, think of Far Hills Animal Clinic!

Please note that by law we may only provide boarding services for our patients; our facilities are not available to the general public.

Canine Boarding
All our boarders are given the chance to play in our fenced-in play area at least four times a day. We do not have group-play sessions; to prevent the possibility of injury we only let dogs out with other dogs from the same family. Canine boarders require the following vaccines before boarding: DAP (Distemper, Adenovirus, and Parvovirus) or equivalent, Rabies, and Bordetella (AKA kennel cough). Please bring your pet's food for boarding, as it is can be rough on a dog's stomach to suddenly switch foods. If no food is provided, we will provide over-the-counter or prescription food as needed at a daily rate.

  • Dog Boarding – $25.50 per night
  • Dog Daycare – $16.50, same day drop-off and pick-up

Feline Boarding
All boarders receive regular play and affection from our kennel staff. Feline Boarders are required to have the following vaccines before boarding: FVRCP (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia) and Rabies. Please bring your pet's food for boarding, as it is can be rough on a cat's stomach to suddenly switch foods. If no food is provided, we will provide over-the-counter or prescription food as needed at a daily rate.

  • Cat Condo – $21.50 per night
  • Cat Daycare – $16.50, same day drop-off and pick-up

Boarding Drop-Off & Pick-Up
Boarders can be dropped off and picked up between the hours of 8 - 11:30 AM or 2 - 5:30 PM on weekdays, and 8 - 11:30 AM on Saturday. Please have an emergency contact number ready where you can be reached during your pet’s stay. If you would like to have your pet bathed during their stay, please plan on picking up in the afternoon to allow staff time to bathe and dry your pet on the day of pick-up.

Boarding Nutrition Care
Sudden changes in a pet’s diet may lead to diarrhea or vomiting due to GI upset. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you bring your pet’s normal kibble and/or canned diet to be used at no charge over the duration of their stay. If no food is brought, we will provide an over-the-counter or veterinary prescription food as needed for a daily rate.

Special Medical Care for Boarders
The boarding care here at Far Hills Animal Clinic is especially useful for those pets who are recovering from a surgical procedure, under long term medical management for an illness such as diabetes or heart failure, or those pets who require a special diet to manage allergic conditions. Our kennel staff is well-versed in day-to-day pet care, and during business hours your pet will be only feet away from a veterinarian should an emergency arise. Below are additional daily rates for special veterinary care.

  • Injectable Medications (insulin, etc.) – $9.50 per day

Additional Boarding Services
We also offer our standard standard cosmetic and preventative services while boarding. For pricing info, just call us or ask a representative when dropping your pet off.

  • Bathing with Hypoallergenic Oatmeal Shampoo
  • Cream Rinse for Dry, Itchy Skin & Loose Hair Removal (after shampooing)
  • Nail Trim
  • Ear Cleaning
  • Expressing Anal Glands
