A Home Away From Home
We know how upsetting it can be to leave your pet when you go away on a trip, it's even harder if they are sick or recovering from a procedure. At Eastgate Animal Hospital, we are here to help make the process easier.
We offer a complete general pet boarding service for our patients and medical boarding for pets who need a higher level of care that standard boarding facilities can't provide. So if you're looking for dog or cat boarding services in Cincinnati, look no further.
The staff at Eastgate Animal Hospital is ready to take care of your dog during our doggy daycare. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday we welcome large dogs and on Tuesday and Thursday we have Tiny Time for our small friends. Your dog requires a daycare evaluation and up-to-date vaccinations to come to doggy daycare.
Dog & Cat Boarding: A Typical Day
Every morning your dog will have the opportunity to get some fresh air and stretch their legs before breakfast. While they are out, their kennel will be cleaned, disinfected, and given fresh linens.
If they are physically capable and willing, we talk dogs in our care on walks on a regular daily schedule.
Take comfort in knowing that your dog will be supervised at all hours while they stay with us. In the evening, they will be given dinner and go for another walk before bedtime.
To make the stay more comfortable, your cat will be fed according to the same routine and specifications that they get at home.
For cats that enjoy human company, we provide daily one-on-one interactions with our staff including snuggles, pets, and playtime. Litter boxes are continuously checked and disinfected throughout the day.
We also refresh linens and keep their rooms clean every day. Our cat boarding area is separate from the dog area so your cat can feel safe while they stay with us.
Your pet will get constant supervision from our experienced veterinarians and staff, who will administer medications and look after them. Any required medications will be given to your pet on the same schedule as at home.

- How should I prepare for my pet's stay?
Each animal is different. To prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.
Step 1: Contact us to get started
Call us to book, and to discuss details about your pet and your boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to coordinate your booking.
Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered dogs. Pets must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.
Step 2: Book a trial stay
We want to be absolutely sure that we are a good fit for your pet before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your pet's temperament and make sure they fit in with the pack.
Step 3: Set your pet up for success
On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel.
Spend some extra time with your pet beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful, and confident during the separation.
- What do you feed animals that don't have their own food?
For pets that are not on a special diet, we provide high-quality Science Diet pet food.
