We offer boarding for our cat patients, which is especially helpful for diabetic cats
receiving insulin, or cats requiring medication, subcutaneous fluid administration, or monitoring
for a medical condition. Our technician will look in on these boarders twice daily on the weekends and holidays, also.

Call us to set up a boarding reservation at 202-363-1316!

Day Boarding

Need to move or to have the house fumigated/exterminated or just cleaned without your furry friend present to get in the way, or get in trouble? Just call us and we will be happy to have he/she stay with us for the day!

Long-term Boarding

We have large runs for hospitalized dogs, and offer dog boarding through Shady Spring Pet Retreat.

We serve as a pick-up point for the “shuttle bus” for your pet to be transported easily to the facility in Maryland.

Please make arrangements to drop off and/or pick up your dog when you leave town for a worry-free trip. If any problems are noted or any vaccines/treatments needed while you are away, the doctor here at Palisades Veterinary Clinic will take care of your loved one.

To arrange boarding with pick-up and drop-off here, call Shady Spring Pet Retreat at (301) 924-4457 or visit their website at
