Pet Boarding

As animal lovers, we understand that it can be hard to leave your pet when you have to go out of town – especially if they are ill, or recovering from a procedure.

At South Salem Animal Hospital, we provide a comfortable, fun environment to make your pets feel more at home.

Our animal hospital boasts several types of boarding available for you to choose from, including luxury boarding, medical boarding, and boarding for exotic pets and birds.

Please give us a call to find out more!
