Comfortable, Low-Stress Boarding for Dogs and Cats in Bear, DE
At Summit Bridge Veterinary Hospital, it’s our mission to make boarding your pet as easy as possible—for them and for you! Our dedicated Pet Resort is conveniently located on the same premises as our hospital, so our veterinary team and any medical care your pet might need are never far away. Our Pet Resort happily accommodates dogs of all sizes, and we welcome your feline family members, too! Expect lots of love from our team as we work to make your pet feel right at home while you’re away.
What’s Included with Dog Boarding?
Here’s what you need to know about our Pet Resort to see if we’re a good fit for your pet.
Fear Free Kennels
The Pet Resort is outfitted with Fear Free-style dog kennels, painted in a soft shade of blue to promote calm. Some kennels are also designed to minimize contact with other pets to help reduce anxiety.
All kennels have elevated, high-quality Kuranda beds to keep your pet cozy.
For medium and large-sized dogs, we offer indoor/outdoor kennels so guests can enjoy sunshine and fresh air when the weather permits. Small dogs have double-decker kennels.
In addition to providing your canine with love, attention, and medical care as needed, we also offer snuggle times, playtimes, and walks.
A High-Quality Diet to Prevent Stomach Upset
We can provide boarding dogs with Purina Pro Plan Veterinary Diet EN (gastroenteric) in both canned and dry varieties to soothe anxious tummies. However, we recommend bringing your pet’s food from home if possible, especially if they are on a prescription diet.
