Pet Boarding in La Porte
Trust our professional and friendly team to take great care of your pet during your next trip.
At Bay-Porte Animal Hospital, we’re proud to offer outstanding boarding services for your beloved pet in addition to comprehensive veterinary care.
We know that each pet is unique, and our veterinary professionals will make every effort to accommodate your pet’s needs and ensure they are safe, happy, and cared for during their stay.
To ensure that your dog will be comfortable boarding with us, Bay-Porte Animal Hospital requires your pet to be dropped off for a one-time pre-boarding daycare trial run. If we find that your pet does not do well in this environment, we will contact you to pick them up. While we do everything we can to ensure pets enjoy their stay, our staff and our boarders’ health and safety are our top priorities.

Dog & Cat Boarding Requirements
All boarding guests will require a mock visit prior to their first reservation to ensure that the pet is comfortable with our staff and facilities. They will also require a limited exam before their boarding dates to ensure they are in good health for their stay with us.
All boarding guests must be up-to-date on vaccinations. If your pet requires any vaccinations before staying with us, we are happy to provide the vaccines for an additional fee.
We require dogs to be up-to-date on:
- Canine Distemper/Parvovirus
- Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
- Canine Influenza
We require cats to be up-to-date on:
- Feline Distemper
Upon acceptance for boarding, all pets must be parasite-free. If we discover parasites on your pet while in our care, they will be treated at an additional charge.
Reservations are preferred, especially during holidays, but we can generally accommodate last-minute or emergency boarding needs.
Our boarding facility is open for drop-off and pick-up whenever the office is open.
Why Board Your Pet at a Veterinary Practice?

- We offer veterinary exams or other medical services needed during your pet’s stay.
