Our Boarding Services

Does your pet need a sleepover?

Having to board your pet while you are out of town can be a stressful and guilt-ridden decision, so we have thoughtfully designed our boarding facilities with your pet’s comfort in mind. This also includes medical care and monitoring during our regular office hours as needed. If your pet has a chronic medical condition or needs special attention, be sure to let us know so we can accommodate your furry friends needs.

  • An environment that is clean and climate-controlled. Our facilities have installed Snyder kennels and runs to give pets a smooth laminate material instead of cold stainless steel for the ultimate comfort. They are quieter and are easy to keep clean and sanitized. Glass front doors are a feature on all of our kennels so that pets can enjoy an unobstructed view to the world around them and not feel like they are in “jail."
  • Spacious, comfortable kennels with soft bedding and fresh water readily available.
  • A daily feeding schedule that follows their normal schedule.
  • Daily walks for dogs and lots of personal attention for all of our guests. We have also paid very close attention to providing natural light in all of our boarding areas.
  • A bath, nail trim or other standard service (by request)

Cat Condos

Our cat boarding area is separate from the dog kennel to ensure that our feline patients have the least amount of stress possible while boarding. Several size and style “condo” options are available to meet the needs of your cat, including several with a view to either the outside or into our reception area. Smaller, private cat condos are available for very shy cats.

Dog Runs/Dog Kennels

Dog boarding is divided into two separate areas; a room with smaller dog kennels for our toy and small breed dogs, and a larger room with ten dog runs for our larger breed dogs (or for smaller dogs that like to think they are bigger dogs!) Both of these areas feature natural light, windows that open to allow a fresh breeze, and access to our spacious back yard for outside playtime. Music is also available for your pet to listen to in order to keep them less stressed.

Parasite-free Environment

Our hospital is a flea-free environment and we are committed to ensuring that your pet stay clean, healthy and parasite-free during their stay, so new boarders or boarders with no history of purchasing a flea-control product with us will receive a one time flea treatment of Capstar on the day of admission to protect all of our boarders. 

Capstar is an oral tablet that is used on dogs and cats. It is safe for use in pregnant and nursing dogs and cats 4 weeks of age or older weighing over 2 lbs. 

Vaccine Requirements

All boarding guests must have written proof showing that they are current on all required vaccinations to board with us.

Our boarding facility can accommodate non-patients as long as they are up to date on all required vaccinations. If your pet is new to our hospital, please bring copies of their vaccine records.

Special Medication Requirements while Boarding

If your pet requires any special medication or medical treatment  while staying with us, we will care for them like they were our own, and provide Licensed Technicians or Veterinarian supervision on any treatments necessary.


Loved how during our visit, we were given a printout with a clear estimate of the cost of the procedures the vet outlined. Really helped in making a decision that fit our budget.

We’ve had our pets continuously taken care of at Cibolo Canyons and they have the best team of animal care givers. They not only provide outstanding care for your fur babies but they are also straight forward with potential options and what is best for your individual needs.

Cibolo Canyons Veterinary Hospital is the only place I'll take my pets!! They have amazing doctors, techs, and front desk staff. I feel great boarding my dogs (and my son's cat) here - they get fantastic care!

We want to thank you for the kind and compassionate care you have shown to us and our cat. You were more than accommodating by giving us a same day appointment when we needed to bring in our stray cat (whom we‘ve decided to name “Lucy”). You were thorough with your explanations and understanding when we had tough decisions to make. We appreciate your promptness with her surgery. It is evident that you enjoy your jobs and take pride in caring for our animal companions. We are glad your veterinary hospital is part of our community. Thank you for your great care!
