Boarding

South Des Moines Veterinary Center is your pet's home away from home. You will have peace of mind knowing your pets are entrusted to a professional health care team. Our modest boarding area allows us to cater to each of your pet's needs.

Our facility offers climate-controlled indoor runs or cages for your pets. During your pet's stay he/she will receive a complimentary physical examination, an interactive toy, and a photo report card for you to take home. Soft, comfortable bedding and water is provided at all times. We provide treats and a premium in-house diet, but welcome you to bring your own food. Our health care team is equipped to administer medication if your pet needs it.

Dogs are walked a minimum of three times a day in a fenced-in area and cats are provided with large litter boxes which are replaced when soiled. After each multi-night stay your dog will leave fresh and clean with a complimentary bath.

South Des Moines Veterinary Center offers an "early release" option for an additional charge allowing you to pick up your pet on Sunday evening. Early release is provided between 5:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. and must be pre-paid.

Want your pet to have some extra playtime while they stay with us? We offer daycare services during the week for boarders at a discounted price.
