Traveling Without Your Pets?


Board 1

Vacationing without your pets can be stressful for them and also for us humans. However, there are options for you and your pets while you are away from home. Animal hospitals, boarding facilities, pet sitters and/or family members can help you with pet care.   If your pet requites medical attention, has sensitive needs and/or you want a facility that doesn’t board so many pets at once, start with asking your Vet if their hospital offers boarding.  Here at Pacific Animal Hospital we offer a home away from home boarding facility! All rooms have a raised bed and are located in a climate controlled area with plenty of natural light. All our canine boarding guests are taken outside individually (unless there is more than one in the family) to our play yard three times a day. Our play yard has plenty of shade and artificial turf  that gets disinfected throughout the day. There is always a PAH assistant with each guest ensuring they get lots of attention, hugs and love! We also offer playtime, pool time, cuddle time, peanut butter kong treats and more! If you want a daily selfie picture of your precious one lounging in the pool or sun, just let us know!




For our picky felines, they have the opportunity to bask in this beautiful San Diego sunshine in our spacious kitty condos that includes a window for those serious bird watchers!  Our condos are multi-leveled and bedded with plenty of cozy blankets.  They too can get massages, cuddle time or playtime! Our cattery is away from our K9 guests, so keeping it quiet is not a problem.

In both the canine and feline boarding areas, we have soothing music to create a calm atmosphere. You are welcome to bring your pet’s favorite food or we offer Purina Pro-Plan EN gastro diet. Pets love it and it’s wonderful for those who have sensitive stomachs. You are more than welcome to bring two favorite items for your fur babies.  We also have soft bedding and stainless steel bowls for our boarding guests. When it’s almost time for them to go home, we also offer grooming!  Our shampoo is hypoallergenic and our groomer offers a variety of haircuts and de-shedding services.  A nice refreshing bath and/or haircut for your pet will have them going home smelling and looking fabulous!  All grooming services include a bath, thorough brushing, nail trim and ear cleaning.

One of the advantages to boarding your pet at an animal hospital is that veterinary attention is readily available should the need arise.  Any pet experiencing a change in routine may exhibit symptoms of stress. Here at PAH, we know that all pets have special needs. We have pets too! Our doctors and staff are ready to care for your pets while you are away. Please call us to get more information on the vaccines and preventative care your pet will need prior to boarding.  If you would like to stop by for a tour, we would love to give you one!  Holidays are right around the corner and we fill up quickly. Pacific Animal Hospital is open seven days a week, Monday – Friday 7 am – 8 pm and on weekends from 8 am to  5 pm. We look forward to hearing from you!


It’s still summer time and Zero takes advantage of the refreshing pool! He just can’t decide which ball he wants to swim with – so why not grab them all!
