We provide boarding services to pets of all ages, from puppies and kittens to senior pets, and everything in between. Your petís care is our greatest concern during their stay with us.
For your petís benefit and your peace of mind, our boarding facility is veterinarian and veterinary staff supervised, enabling us to provide complete medical care for your pet in the event of an emergency.
We are also able to provide care for any boarders who may have special needs, including medication, special dietary requirements, and more.
You are welcome to bring your individual petís food/treats for their stay or we will provide nutritious food during their time with us at no additional charge.
There are a number of reasons why pet owners may seek out Decorah Animal Hospital for pet boarding services.

Some of these may be:

  • You are visiting the area and your pet is traveling with you and you need a reliable place for your pet to stay
  • You have house guests who are allergic to your pet
  • You have recently done work to the house such as carpet or pool cleaning or extermination and need your pet away from the house for a few days
  • You are showing your house for sale
  • You have a new baby in the house and your pet needs time to adjust

Dogs are housed individually in large kennels with comfortable beds. Kennels are cleaned a minimum of twice daily while the dogs are allowed to use the indoor runs. We make every effort to spend quality time with your dog when they are outside the kennel; belly rubs are our favorite!
Each dog receives a complimentary bath with a two-night stay. Nail trims, grooming or other services can be arranged during their stay for an additional fee.
Our cat boarding area is completely separate from our dog boarding areas. Cats are boarded in large, multi-level cat kennels that include a fleece hammock for their comfort. Cats at our hospital have large windows for viewing outside.
