A Home Away From Home
No one wants to leave their cat somewhere while they're out of town especially if they are ill or recovering. At Lafayette Companion Animal Hospital, we are here to ease all of the stress during this process.
We provide complete general boarding services for all of our feline patients, and medical boarding services for cats with conditions that would fall beyond the scope of a standard boarding facility.
Our cat condo consists of 8 spacious Condos and 2 larger Townhouses for your feline friends to stay in while you are away. Your cat has the opportunity to have playtime as well as individualized attention and a variety of toys to play with.
A Typical Day
Your cat will be fed according to your specifications and their requirements, to ensure there are minimal changes to their daily schedule.
We provide daily one-on-one interaction with kitties (if they want to be social!) including play, snuggles, and pets. Litter boxes are checked, cleaned and disinfected regularly throughout the day. Additionally, we refresh linens and clean your kitty's room daily.
Your pet will be monitored by our expert veterinarians and nurses, who will administer medications and watch over them closely. Any required medications will be administered to your pet following the same schedule they are used to at home.

Each animal is different. To prepare for your cat's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.
Step 1: Contact us to get started
Call us to book, and to discuss details about your cat and your boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to coordinate your booking.
Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered cats and they must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.
Step 2: Set your pet up for success
On the day you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your cat may feel.
Spend some extra time with your cat beforehand, and make sure they get some playtime so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful and confident during the separation.
