Boarding and Grooming


We know how important it is for you to know your pet is happy, comfortable, and safe while you are away. We welcome your pets to stay in our newly renovated boarding facility! We provide clean, comfortable accommodations in a climate controlled, state-of-the-art facility 365 days a year. We treat your pets like our own and want their experience to be as safe and happy as possible by providing one-on-one attention and multiple walks every day in our outdoor fenced yards.

We recommend bringing your pet's medications and food (if on a special diet) or we can provide our food at no additional cost. We also provide blankets, pillows, and bedding for all our boarding pets. (You are welcome to bring a blanket, but we ask that no beds are brought as they can be difficult to wash if soiled by pets during their stay) . Feel free to take a tour of our boarding facility, complete with plexiglass-front runs and skylights for natural lighting.

  • For your dog to board with us, we require that the Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, Kennel Cough, and Influenza (both strains) vaccines be up-to-date, as well as a negative fecal exam performed within the last year. We are happy to provide these services during your pet's stay if needed.

We also provide feline boarding in a separate cat ward, complete with skylights for natural lighting and a kitty condo for entertainment. We provide everything your cat needs – litter boxes, dishes, cat beds and blankets, and even toys for their amusement!

  • For cats to board, we require the Feline Rabies and FVRCP vaccines be up-to-date. We are happy to provide these services during your pet's stay if needed.

Medical Boarding

We also offer specialized medical boarding for pets with diabetes or chronic or acute medical conditions. Your pet's stay with us will include careful supervision, administration of any needed medications such as insulin injections, etc. These services have separate pricing than nonmedical boarding. Call us today to discuss your pet's individual needs during their stay with us.

Exotic Boarding

We also provide boarding for exotic pets, including rabbits, guinea pigs, and parrots. For these, we ask that you bring their cage, bedding, food, and any necessary items. Please call us if you have any questions regarding exotic pet boarding.

Boarding drop-off hours begin at 7AM Monday-Friday and 8AM on Saturday. Pick-up is available until 6:30PM Monday-Thursday, 5:30PM Friday, and 12:30PM on Saturdays.


Need to get your pet out of the house while the carpets are being cleaned? Along with boarding, we also provide day care services for pets that don’t require an overnight stay. This can be a great option if you will be gone for a long period during the day or need to temporarily remove pets from your home any reason.


Grooming is more than just a bit of pet pampering – it's an important part of preventative medical care! Joyce, our groomer, has been with Duluth Animal Hospital for 25 years, and has had the pleasure of doing generations of pets with our clients. She treats all pets as if they were her own. She is available Monday through Friday. Her grooms include a bath, hair cut, a nail trim, ear cleaning, anal gland expression, coat brushing, and pet cologne if desired.

We advise owners to begin brushing their pet's coat and teeth at an early age, along with handling their feet and face. This will become a normal part of their care regime, making it easier to groom them over the years. Plus, they love the one-on-one attention they receive as soon as they become a member of the family! Spots are limited, so call us to reserve your pet's grooming appointment!


Treat your pet to a luxurious bath! Our special, cleansing baths remove dirt, debris and odor – your pet will feel fresh and revitalized. We also offer medicated baths to help relieve itching due to allergies, skin irritations, or infections. Nail trims, gland expression, ear cleaning, coat brushing, and pet cologne are included with bathing services. Baths are available Monday-Saturday.
