We Work with Cats, Dogs, Birds & More!

Regardless of what type of animal you have as a pet, if you are going to be leaving for an extended period of time, don’t leave them home alone. Dogs, cats, and even birds know when you are away and, just like people, will get lonely if they are left alone for too long. Ellison Drive Animal Hospital provides a loving environment to board your pet if you are going to be away for an extended period of time. We work with almost any type of pet, and make their comfort our number one priority when they are left in our care.

Pet Boarding vs. Pet Sitting -
Which is better?

When you and your family take trips, sometimes it is impossible to bring your pet along. When this is going to be the case, it is important to set up arrangements for your dog or cat to be taken care of by a professional, so that they get enough food and exercise when you are away. When circumstances like this come up, owners will typically either choose to hire a pet sitter (whether it be a friend, relative, or professional) or turn to a place that offers pet boarding.

Pet Sitting

When you hire a pet sitter (assuming they are not family or a close friend), they will usually charge upwards of $10 per home visit. If you have a dog that needs to be let out multiple times per day, or a cat who loves to chow through food, this can quickly add up. Hiring a pet sitter that is unrelated to you can also be problematic if your pet is not comfortable around strangers. Cats can hide and not come out while dogs can become aggressive or non-compliant. On top of this, many people may not feel comfortable letting a stranger have free reign of their home for extended periods of times.

Pet Boarding

Boarding your pet is typically cheaper, more commonly chosen by pet owners, and offers many of the same benefits as hiring a sitter. At Ellison Drive Animal Hospital and Potranco Veterinary Clinic, your pet will get plenty of exercise, have toys to play with, and even have access to high quality food to help ease stress. Our team have not only spent years helping virtually every species of domesticated pet, but are also specially trained to be able to work with even the most timid pets. We strive to provide the highest quality pet boarding experience possible, which has earned us a reputation for being one of the most trusted boarding locations in the San Antonio area. We provide dog boarding, cat boarding, and even work with pocket pets and birds!
