Experience Pet Boarding at its Finest
Pet boarding at Arab Veterinary Hospital is like no other facility in the area. We serve pets of Cullman, Guntersville and beyond with a unique boarding philosophy that champions the idea of play. Our boarding house allows pets to experience an environment of comfort, compassion, safety, and uninhibited play.
What We Offer
Our boarding facility is built in our Thomson Hall and provides spacious (and separate!) areas for dogs, cats, horses, and just about any other species who needs a temporary home away from home. Any creature that can be comfortable in one of our kennels can stay with us! We’ve housed exotic pets such as lizards and turtles, birds such as parrots and parakeets, and even wildlife!
- Personal dog kennels and townhouses
- A sunken playground area for daycare for dogs
- An outdoor area with a swimming pool for dogs
- Secluded, two-level cat condos with patios that go outside
- Paddocks for horses and a larger field in which to run, roam, and graze
- Separate facilities for sick pets or those who require hospitalization*
*If your pet has special needs or is diabetic, we have trained staff always available to administer medications and any special requests as needed.
What's Included in Your Pet Boarding Package
No matter which facility your pet is residing in, they will receive the best standards of care from our devoted staff. Your pet’s boarding experience includes:
- Food, which you can bring from home if your pet is on a special diet
- Bedding (we do not allow this brought from home)
- Daily walks for dogs
- Pasture time for horses
- Playtime either in a group or singular
- Text/photo updates for you
You are also allowed to bring toys from home so your pet has familiar items to play with during their stay.
Pets do not have to be patients of ours in order to board with us. We accept one and all! However, there are a few requirements for boarding:
- Make sure your pet is up-to-date on their recent vaccinations.
- Pets should also be free from external and internal parasites and be current with their parasite preventatives.
Should you have any further questions about our pet boarding facility, or whether we can accommodate your pet and their needs, please contact us today.
"The doctors and staff at AVH are phenomenal! They have shown the utmost care for my animals as well as my family. I couldn’t ask for my dogs and cats to be in any better care than they have provided for years. Highly, highly recommend!" - Chris H.
"Can't begin to say how awesome everyone is. So amazing. ALL staff was fantastic. They love your dog too! The doctors are incredible and gave my dog a new life. They are always there when you call and I thank you all so much." - Elizabeth H.
"Took my goat in for an exam. Dr. Harney took his time and held a real conversion with me about his health. I feel some doctors just scan over your animal then tell you do this thing. But Dr. Harney took time to go over options and testing and treatments. 10/10 will recommend." - Elise R.
"The place is gorgeous! I could hang out on their porch swings all afternoon, but the love and care of the staff far exceed all of their beautiful decor and furnishings! We love the Browns!" - Melissa C.
"Excellent facility, excellent Veterinarians and staff. I would not take my pets to any other veterinary practice. Thank you Dr. Brown and Dr. Zeiger and everyone at Arab Veterinary Hospital for making a trip to the vet both informative and friendly!" - Charlie H.
