Elective Hospitalization (Boarding)

River Heights provides specialized boarding services that we call “elective hospitalization.” This service is not equivalent to regular boarding. It is reserved for pets with medical conditions that require more intensive supervision than a normal boarding kennel can provide. For example, pets with diabetes, heart disease, epilepsy, senior pet problems, or in need of serious wound care may require elective hospitalization if an owner is going out of town.

A veterinary technician over sees the care of these pets and will monitor the pet during his/her stay. Your pet will also be included in the daily rounds by the staff doctors who will oversee the condition and treatment of the pet and document any changes.
