Boarding

Are you making plans to go out of town for a holiday or business trip? Have you considered where you will leave your precious pet? Let your pet board with the many happy dogs and cats at River Ridge Veterinary Clinic. River Ridge Vet has regular pet boarders from all over the River Ridge, Harahan, Jefferson, and Elmwood areas.

River Ridge Veterinary Clinic has a completely new, state-of-the-art facility, which includes a modern boarding facility. Our boarding area is completely climate-controlled to keep your furry friend cozy in the winter, and cool during the long summer months of Louisiana. Our canine boarders are kept separate from our feline friends, in order to minimize the stress that can occur when cats are continually exposed to barking dogs. Our kennels are kept immaculately clean, and are continually monitored by our caring and experienced staff.

For the safety of your pet and that of others, all pets boarding at River Ridge Veterinary Clinic must be current on their vaccination schedule. Our canine boarders must be current on rabies, bordetella (“kennel cough”), distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza, and leptospirosis vaccines. Feline must be up-to-date on rabies, rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia, and chlamydia vaccinations. If your pet is not current, or you are unsure of their current vaccination status, please contact our clinic at least four weeks out from your desired stay, so that we may properly protect your pet with vaccinations.

Prior to your pet’s stay with us, please gather all their medications and special diet foods, so that we may administer them in your absence. If your pet has any special needs, please let our caring staff know in advance.

At River Ridge Veterinary Clinic, we know that you have choices on where to board your pet when you are away. We take special pride in our new facility, and welcome tours where we can answer any questions you may have. When you must leave town without your furry friend, you can rely on the professional pet boarding services at River Ridge Veterinary Clinic. Our spaces fill up quickly, especially during holiday seasons, so please call us in advance at 504-737-6705.
