Standard Boarding

We currently offer boarding for our existing clients, with separate accommodations for dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, birds, and pocket pets. Our guests receive one-on-one care and attention throughout their stay, including meal time, and during walks and play. All boarding facilities and bedding are cleaned and changed daily to ensure your pet(s) is comfortable.

All of our pet guests are examined by one of our Veterinarians each day (except when closed to the public on Sundays). Our veterinary technicians are trained to recognize the signs of pet illness and follow protocols to ensure the appropriate medical care is promptly provided. You will be contacted if a medical need should arise. With your permission, we will also send you updates and or a picture of your pet(s) via text, email, and or phone every other day.

Medical Boarding

Including the care indicated above, if  your pet requires medical observation and or administration of medications, our veterinary staff will ensure that their medical treatments and health is tended to. In addition, our veterinary team is available to address any medical concerns and or problems during our regular business hours, should they arise. This includes care for disabled, geriatric, diabetic and post surgery pets.

We also offer Intensive Medical Boarding for pets requiring a greater degree of care, including care for those pets that need to be quarantined or isolated temporarily from other pets and or humans in the household for medical reasons.

Additional Services

You may schedule additional services for your pet during its stay – including a physical exam, a medical or surgical procedure such as a spay, neuter, and dental. You may also request a bath and or nail trim during your pet’s stay. 

Required Vaccinations

We require that all dogs and cats be current on the following vaccinations:

Dogs:
Rabies
DA2PP
Leptospirosis
Canine Influenza
Bordetella

Cats:
Rabies
FVRCP

No exam or appointment is required if a physical exam was performed by one of our veterinarians within the past 6-12 months.

Vaccinations must be given at least 7 days prior to the check-in date.  Vaccinations given less than 7 days or vaccinations given for the first time that require a booster will not provide your pet the best protection.

If your pet has been vaccinated at another facility, we must have a copy of the current vaccination record in our file prior to check-in day. It is your responsibility to make sure your previous veterinarian has faxed this record to us and that we have received it.

Boarding services are provided by reservation only. Drop Off and Pick Up are Monday through Saturday only.  Please feel free to contact our hospital and speak to one of our veterinary staff members with any questions.

I have used this vet as far back as I can remember. The staff is extremely kind. They know their job inside and out! I highly recommend anyone seeking a vet should call and try them out for yourself. GREAT!


Everyone who works at Bristol County is so nice. You can tell they hire people who enjoy and love animals. I always appreciate the care that both my dogs receive from the vets at Bristol County. Dr. Ripp and Dr. Richards and their assistants are wonderful. I always feel they listen to me and provide excellent feedback. Thank you to the entire staff at Bristol County!


Great care for your pets from a caring staff and top notch management! Any issues taken to management are taken seriously and quickly resolved, all in addition to skilled doctors and techs.


Dr. Richards puts my furry friend at ease. She understands Sunshine and works with her temperament instead of resorting to restraining her in a towel. It makes the visit much less stressful for both of us!


One can find only the highest level of care and professionalism at BCVH!


All of the folks at this facility have and continue to provide the best care for our much loved feline family members. I never feel rushed when I bring Katie in for her visit. Treatment plans are explained thoroughly as well as the costs. I ALWAYS feel that WE have made the best choice for our pet.


Always a pleasant experience even when my cat is costing me money. That speaks volumes about the care they provide for our furry little family member.
