Boarding & Grooming
Traveling can be fun and exciting, but preparing for a vacation or business related travel can mean a lot of stress, especially when it comes to finding safe, reliable care for your pets. This stress can become even more pronounced if the trip is for a sudden emergency or business need. Rather than impose on a neighbor or rely on a pet sitter with little animal care training, Norfolk County Veterinary Service can provide your pet with a safe, comfortable and fun place to stay while you are away.
Our recently remodeled boarding area is designed to provide a safe, comfortable and fun place for cats and small dogs (under 30 pounds) to stay while their owners are away. We can board dogs that weigh more than 30 pounds only if they require medical attention and/or supervision.
Our boarding facility is temperature controlled and has a separate room for cats so they can relax without being harried by boisterous dogs. We also specialize in boarding animals that need medical care while boarding and for postoperative recuperation.

Grooming is more than just a bit of pet pampering; it is an important step in keeping your pet happy and healthy by preventing disease. For example, regular baths and nail trims help remove harmful germs from the fur and paws that are picked up as your dog plays outside and provides a great opportunity for the groomer to notice dried or cracked paw pads or skin issues.
Norfolk County Veterinary Service offers grooming for patients that require sedation, de-matting, flea dips and baths, nail clipping, and anal sac expression. For pets that may become stressed or anxious our veterinary team can use a mild sedative in order to ease the process. A technician can also apply feline Soft-Paws, which are small rubber tips placed on the nails to prevent scratching damage.
