The choice on where to board your beloved pet while you are away causes many people stress and anxiety. While there are many options available to you, no place in or around Portsmouth is more safe, secure or caring than our veterinary clinic.
Churchland Animal Clinic in Portsmouth offers pet boarding services, and we truly are committed to caring for your companions, whether they are here for a quick checkup or an extended stay while you are away. Our animal clinic is conveniently located to Chesapeake, Tidewater and Hampton Roads so it is easy to get to when you are on your way out of town.
There are many advantages to keeping your pet at our facility while you are away. The primary advantage is that if your pet should happen to require medical care while you are away then they are in no better hands than ours. Another advantage is that we can take care of routine examinations or vaccinations while you are away which will free you up from having to take additional time out of your schedule to make these appointments.
Taking care of pets is what we do, and we apply the same conscientious care to pets that are staying with us as when they are patients with us. We make sure that each pet's needs are taken care of and that they get plenty of exercise and fresh air. Our dog boarding facility can accommodate both large and small dogs, and our dedicated staff spends time with each of them, giving them the personal attention that they need. We realize that we are no replacement for you, but we hope to keep your pet as happy and stress free as possible while you are away.
If you live in Portsmouth or the surrounding areas and we are already your pet's vet, then they will already be familiar with our clinic. Conversely, we will also be familiar with your pet and their health history and we will be able to provide them with the individual attention that familiarity allows.
Being left behind while you are away can be stressful to many pets. We understand this and you are welcome to leave their favorite toy or blanket with them while you are away. Leaving a shirt behind that you have recently worn can also help keep pets soothed and relaxed so that when you return they are happy to see you and not anxious and stressed.
Churchland Animal Clinic offers many services to pets living in the Hampton Roads area, including Portsmouth, Chesapeake and Tidewater. The next time you need to board your pet, we hope that you will consider our clinic where we treat your pets just like our own.
