The Care First Difference


At Care First Animal Hospital, we pride ourselves on offering affordable rates with unbeatable flexibility, convenience and veterinarian-quality care and safety. Feel free to contact us with any questions about the pricing information.


For all pets that will be boarding with us, we ask that you please be sure to bring the following documents with you on drop-off day (if your pet is not current, the pet must be examined by our doctors and be given the appropriate vaccines and parasite treatment at an extra fee):

  • Current health history
  • Proof of rabies, distemper and Bordetella vaccines
  • Proof of a negative fecal exam within the past year
  • Proof pet is free from external parasites


You are allowed to bring your pets favorite items to board with them, however, we ask that you limit it to two items per pet. Dog and cat beds are appropriate to bring but can be easily soiled. We provide blankets and towels.


Your pet will be walked 2-3 times daily when boarding with us, and can participate in Doggy DayCamp for an extra fee!
