Our Houston, TX, animal hospital team loves your pets as if they were our own, which is why we make them feel as if they are
We know that your pets are members of your family and that it is difficult to leave them behind when you travel. At Sunset Animal Hospital, we understand the need to have someone you trust caring for them while you are away. That’s why our trained and dedicated kennel staff will tend to your friends’ needs and care for them as if they were our own pets.
What’s more, is we are more than happy to treat your pet to a soothing medicated bath for optimal cleanliness and comfort!
Cat & Dog Boarding
When your pet enters our clinic, he or she will be examined by one of our technicians. The technician will check your pet’s general appearance, including teeth, ears, eyes, and skin. For the safety and well-being of all our patients, any sign of fleas or ticks found during the boarding examination will prompt our technicians to treat the condition at the owner’s expense. Our goal is to maintain a pest-free environment for everyone! We also require all boarding pets to be current on their vaccinations and physical examinations. If your pet is due, vaccinations and a physical examination will be administered by one of our veterinarians upon admission.
During your pet’s stay, our kennel attendants will feed, water, and walk him or her twice daily. All accommodations are also cleaned and sanitized at least twice daily—or more often if needed. We invite you to bring your pet’s regular food along with you, but if you prefer, we feed our canine guests Science Diet Sensitive Stomach, and our feline guests receive Science Diet Optimal Care. Our staff is also trained to administer medications to pets for an additional fee. We also offer extra-care boarding and baths too!
While many pets are calm and relaxed during their stay with us, some pets may become stressed due to the unfamiliar environment. Since our boarding facility is housed within our clinic, a vet is on staff 24/7. In case your pet becomes ill or develops a problem during his or her visit, one of our doctors will be able to provide an examination and begin any necessary treatments immediately.
Cat & Dog Bathing
Treat your cat or dog to a refreshing bath. While we are not professional groomers, we are more than capable of giving your pet a cleansing bath using our HydroSurge system. We have a large selection of medicated shampoos to help soothe almost any skin condition. If you are experiencing problems with parasites, such as fleas, ticks, or mites, we offer specialized treatments to help eliminate them.
We also offer supplementary services, such as toenail trimming, ear cleaning, and anal gland expressions, for an additional cost.
