We understand that it can be stressful to leave your pet home alone all day – especially if they are ill, or when they are recovering from a procedure or surgery. At Animal Health Services, we want to help put your mind at ease.
We provide daycare boarding services for Cave Creek pets, and medical boarding services for dogs and cats with conditions standard boarding centers may not be equipped to accommodate.
Our boarding services are offered during our regular business hours, Monday through Saturday.
We understand that you want your pet to be as happy and comfortable as possible when they can't be at home. That's why our Cave Creek vets offer daycare services for cats and dogs that provide your four-legged friend with plenty of love and attention throughout the day.
Our doggie daycare visitors are treated to kennels that are cleaned regularly, disinfected, and stocked with fresh bedding for your pup to relax on.
Depending on their physical capacity and ability, your pooch will get plenty of playtime with our other daycare guests, or be treated to a relaxing walk around the grounds with our experienced staff.
Your dog will also have supervision throughout their entire stay with us – both during walks and while they rest.
Your cat will be fed according to your specifications and their requirements, to ensure their routine is the same as it is at home.
We provide daily one-on-one interaction with kitties (if they want it!) including play, snuggles, and pets. Litter boxes are checked, cleaned and disinfected periodically throughout the day.
We refresh linens and clean our cat kennels daily and periodically throughout the day as needed. Our cat boarding area is separated from the dog area to ensure your kitty feels relaxed and safe while they stay with us.
Your pet will be supervised by our expert veterinarians and nurses, who will administer medications and watch over them closely. Any required medications will be administered to your pet on the same schedule they are used to at home.
We're serious animal lovers, and our whole team enjoys giving our boarders all the attention and care they deserve while they're staying with us.

We've got everything your pet needs for a fun, recuperative and safe stay, including the following accommodations and amenities:
We have a large facility and are able to accommodate several animals at once, provided you give us sufficient notice.
Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to board family members (canine/canine or feline/feline) together.
Boarding fees vary based on the duration of the stay, the size of the pet, and special medical requirements. That said, our pricing is affordable and competitive, and we welcome you to contact us for a quote.
All pets must be dropped off or picked up during regular office hours. Reservations are recommended, especially for holidays and summer weekends. During these times, we recommend that you call 2-3 weeks in advance to increase the chance that a spot will be available.
Food: We provide food for pets staying with us. However, please feel free to bring enough of your pet's regular food to last the duration of the stay.
Medication: If your pet takes any medication, bring it along for our staff to administer.
Toys: If your pet has a special toy or two, bring them along.
We will be glad to administer your pet's medications while they are with us.
Yes, feel free to call us during your pet's stay for updates. If there is a problem, we will contact you via the emergency contact information you provide.
Each animal is different. To prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.
Call us to book, and to discuss details about your pet and your boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to coordinate your booking.
Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered dogs. Pets must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.
We want to be absolutely sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your pet's temperament and make sure they fit in with the pack.
On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.
Spend some extra time with your pet beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful and confident during the separation.
For pets that are not on a special diet, we offer Hill’s Science & Prescription Diets pet food for animals staying with us over mealtimes.
We are delighted that you have chosen us to care for your furry friend while you are out of the house. To make drop-off easier on your pet's first day please complete and submit our Boarding Check-In Form beforehand.
