Our cat guests enjoy roomy accommodations in a dog free area shared by the veterinarians, allowing close supervision during their stay. The cats may watch hours of continuous loop cat tv featuring fish, squirrels, birds and other creatures of interest while they lounge on elevated perches or in a soft cat bed.
Our canine guests may enjoy a run or kennel, as well as multiple daily outings. We have a fenced exercise yard to provide for their safety. Housemates may be accommodated together at times if desired. We have auditory calming therapy in our kennels to ease possible homesickness and are happy to substitute your pets’ dog bed over our blankets at your request. Please let us know if your pet tends to eat such bedding (or toys), as we all want to avoid such a medical emergency.
We encourage and allow personal items to accompany all our boarders. Rawhides and other Chew toys may be allowed during business hours as requested and at the discretion of the veterinarians. Bones are not permitted due to multiple possible adverse medical complications. Please recognize that while we do our best to ensure items are not lost, that is a possibility as items may need to be washed during your pet’s stay. Please consider bringing your pet’s regular diet to minimize the stress of a dietary change. Science diet products are fed otherwise, and pets requiring prescription diets will be fed the appropriate Science diet product at an additional charge. We do not endorse the feeding of raw diets, and cannot be held responsible for any medical complications related to that feeding practice.
Short boarding visits early in a pet’s life can help them realize that these events are a part of life and not worrisome. We look forward to caring for your pet family!

Why shop at Woodside Animal Hospital instead of internet or Chain Store Pharmacies?
Offering a comprehensive in-house pharmacy offers our patients faster, more personalized service and quicker treatment than would otherwise be possible if our clients had to delay treatment until prescriptions could be filled by other providers. By filling your medications exclusively with us, the risk of medication interactions is lowered. Our pricing is competitive, you never have to pay for expedited shipping, and we are proud to be available to answer your questions comprehensively and accurately. Many large chain human pharmacies do not have sufficient veterinary knowledge to recognize veterinary doses and answer your questions about administration, which are frequently different in pets than humans. Additionally, their staff may not be able to attend to an animal prescriptions as quickly as we can, due to demands on their time communicating with insurance providers for the people prescriptions they are filling! Furthermore, veterinary pharmaceutical manufacturers will only honor product guarantees when medications are prescribed by and purchased from the pet’s veterinarian directly. Our frequent contact with our pharmaceutical suppliers allows us to stay abreast of new educational and research information. Be assured that your support of our pharmacy will help ensure the continued availability of the convenience of a “one-stop shop,” as well as help us keep the costs of other veterinary services lower. Woodside Animal Hospital does offer an online store as well to facilitate shopping at your convenience, day or night. Please ask us for more details.
