Boarding Services

At Marathon Veterinary Hospital, we strive to provide excellence in animal care and to assure a comfortable stay for all of our guests. We provide clean and spacious accommodations for both cats and dogs. Our animal caregivers are dedicated to providing each of our guests the utmost care, attention, and love. Each pet is treated as if they were our own!

Should your pet need any medical services such as vaccinations, spay/neuter, dentistry or a bath we would be happy to perform them during your pet’s stay. Please ask about any services when you make your pet’s reservation.

The benefits of boarding at Marathon Veterinary Hospital are that our staff is highly trained to watch for indications of any medical problems that may arise during your pet’s stay. If you have a special needs pet, we are happy to meet their needs by giving medications or special diets.
