Minnesota Veterinary Hospital offers the best in doggie daycare boarding facilities. We know that it is important for puppies and dogs to receive social interaction, stimulation, and exercise in a supervised environment. We provide safe indoor and outdoor facilities where your furry friend stays active and engaged while you are away.
At Minnesota Veterinary Hospital’s boarding facility, we promote a healthy environment so your dog is happier, healthier, and better behaved. Your dog will get the exercise he needs to be well rested, so that when he comes home, he won’t portray behavior caused by boredom, such as chewing, digging, and barking.
While we understand that no doggie daycare can replace the needed interaction a puppy gets from his owner, we give your pup the best care possible while you are busy and away from home.
You can also schedule an appointment for a full-service grooming during your pet’s stay. Our licensed pet stylists have years of experience using techniques that calm and comfort pets during their grooming so they come home to you smelling great and feeling mentally and physically stimulated.
Ticks and the diseases they carry are in a continual state of movement across North America. It's important to talk to your veterinarian about concerns you have regarding our geographical region, but also if you plan on travelling to other destinations across the US and Canada.
Tick-borne diseases differ with regions. While Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne disease in the Northeast and Upper Midwest, new research suggests that it is not the greatest cause for concern in most Southeastern states, according to Medical News Today. The findings were published recently in a paper in the journal Zoonoses and Public Health. The majority of human-biting ticks in the North -- members of the blacklegged tick species --cause Lyme disease, but these same ticks do not commonly bite humans south of mid-Virginia. Biologist Graham Hickling of the University of Tennessee, co-author of the paper, says many patients in Southeastern states, who become sick from a tick-bite, assume they have Lyme disease, but the odds of that being the case are low. "Ticks in the eastern U.S. collectively carry more than a dozen agents that can cause human disease," says Hickling. Most bites in the Southeast are from the tick species that spread spotted fever rickettsiosis and ehrlichiosis, but not Lyme disease. A complicating factor for public health officials is that tick species are on the move, as wildlife populations, forest habitats and weather patterns change across the continent.

When a puppy or kitten is born, its immune system in not yet mature and wide open for infection. Fortunately, the mother produces specific milk, called colostrum, in the first few days after giving birth. The colostrum is rich in antibodies and the puppy/kitten will take on their mother's immunity. After the first couple of days, regular milk is produced and the puppy's/kitten's intestines undergo what is called closure, which means they are no longer able to take antibodies into their systems.
