Austin, Texas Canine Boarding


Westlake Animal Hospital provides pet boarding and grooming services for dogs and cats in the Austin, Texas area and West Lake Hills. We provide a safe haven for your pets while you are away—when your pets are our guests, we hope you will feel confident they are safe, well fed, comfortable, and loved. We are also able to cater to pets with special needs, as well as offer complete veterinary services that can be performed during your pet’s stay, such as surgery, emergency, dentistry, vaccinations, heartworm tests, and fecal parasite tests.

Austin Dog Boarding

All of our canine guests will have a reserved dog run and will be exercised in our enclosed yard at least twice daily. We provide individual attention to your pet, and only allow two dogs to share a run if they are part of the same family. All of our boarded pets are fed Hill’s Science Diet Sensitive Stomach formula, but you may bring an alternative dog food, if desired. You may bring small items, such as a special blanket or toy, but we cannot be responsible for their loss or damage.

Austin Pet Boarding Reservations

Reservations should be made in advance for all services. Please call very early for holiday and summer boarding. A 50% deposit is required to hold boarding reservations during holiday seasons. Current vaccinations are required for all pets boarding with us.

Canine Boarding Check In/Check Out

Boarders may be checked in and out at your convenience during kennel hours. Charges begin the evening your pet is admitted. Check out is much like a hotel; pets picked up after 2 p.m. are charged a late pick up fee of $13.
