Far Hills Animal Clinic has been providing pet boarding services for our patients for almost 40 years. Our caring kennel staff has been highly trained to handle the care of all pets, from healthy adolescents to diabetic patients to pets who have just undergone surgery. You can rest easy knowing that your pet is only a few feet away from a veterinarian during their stay. When boarding your special friend who requires special care, think of Far Hills Animal Clinic!
Please note that we may only provide boarding services for our patients; our facilities are not available to the general public.
Boarding Drop-Off & Pick-Up
Boarders can be dropped off and picked up between the hours of 8 to 11:30 a.m. or 2 to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays, and 8 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday. Please have an emergency contact primary and secondary number ready where you can be reached during your pet’s stay. If you would like to have your pet bathed during their stay, please plan on picking up in the afternoon to allow staff time to bathe and dry your pet on the day of pick-up.
All boarders are given the chance to frolic and play in our fenced-in play area four times a day. We only let dogs out with other dogs from the same family to prevent any scuffles. Canine boarders are required to be vaccinated before boarding (Distemper, Adenovirus, and Parvovirus [DAP], Rabies and Bordetella). Please bring food for boarding. If no food is provided, we will provide over-the-counter or prescription food as needed at a daily rate.

- Dog Daycare – $16.50, same day drop-off and pick-up.
All boarders receive regular play and affection from our kennel staff. Feline Boarders are required to be vaccinated before boarding (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia [FVRCP] and Rabies). Please bring food for boarding. If no food is provided, we will provide over-the-counter or prescription food as needed at a daily rate.

Boarding Nutrition Care
Sudden changes in a pet’s diet may lead to diarrhea or vomiting due to GI upset. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you bring your pet’s normal kibble and/or canned diet to be used at no charge over the duration of their stay. If no food is brought, we will provide an over-the-counter or veterinary prescription food as needed for a daily rate.
Special Medical Care for Boarders
The boarding care here at Far Hills Animal Clinic is especially useful for those pets who are recovering from a surgical procedure or who are under long term medical management for an illness such as diabetes or heart failure or those pets who require a special diet to manage allergic conditions. Our highly trained kennel staff is well versed in day to day veterinary care and your pet will always be only feet away from a veterinarian should an emergency arise. Below are additional daily rates for special veterinary care.
- Injectable Medications (insulin, etc.) – $9.50 per day.
