Caring for your dog or cat is a job our Coronado veterinarian takes very seriously. A proven facility, Coronado Veterinary Hospital has been providing superlative and compassionate care for small pets in Coronado, Imperial Beach and nearby communities for over 70 years.  As your pet’s lifetime medical provider, we begin by treating puppies and kittens with preventive care, onward to detecting and treating problems as pets age, and providing complete medical and surgical care as needed. In addition, our Coronado pet boarding service provides outstanding care as well as medical support for your pet if needed. 

If you plan to leave town and cannot take your pet along, you can rest easy knowing your cat or dog is in good hands with our pet boarding services in Coronado. We ensure pets receive proper care, play, and administer any medications necessary. 

Why Board Your Pet in Coronado?

Why Board Your Pet in Coronado? Going away and leaving your pet behind can be traumatic for everyone involved, and it’s crucial to know your pet will be well cared for. Why not let a friend or family member take care of him or her? Surely they mean well, but the fact is, they have lives of their own and your pet is probably not going to be on the top of their priority list. At our hospital your pet is our number 1! Each and every pet gets individualized care that addresses their unique needs and personalities. Plus, when your pet is boarded right here in our clinic, he or she has immediate access to any necessary medical care.

When making a decision about a boarding facility, here are some things you should look for.

  • Cleanliness
  • Fresh odor
  • Experienced, pleasant and friendly staff
  • Calm, happy pet boarders
  • Exercise facilities or daily walks
  • Would you feel comfortable leaving your pet there?

Special Cases

Leaving any pet behind is difficult, but it’s even more so for those who are older, have special needs, or are puppies or kittens. Not only are we the best animal hospital in the area, we have the expertise and experience to care for these pets with love, skill and compassion.

Hints for a Smooth Departure

You want your pet to have the most positive possible experience when you are away, and this starts when you make your reservation. We only accept our own patients for boarding, so we have a good idea about each pet’s behaviors and idiosyncrasies, but there are some things we may not know such as how your pet gets along with unfamiliar people and animals or any special playtime activities. Also let us know if he or she has any fears such as of loud noises. For the actual parting, be upbeat and avoid long and teary farewell.
