Riverview Animal Clinic: A Home Away From Home For Your Pet

There’s real peace of mind knowing your pet has a trusted, loving home away from home when you need to be away. And that’s exactly what you’ll find at Riverview Animal Clinic.

Whether your pet needs care for a day, a night or several weeks or months, we offer complete boarding facilities for dogs, cats and most exotic animals – as well as attentive, compassionate care from a highly skilled staff who love animals.

The Birmingham area’s best pet boarding facility

Our boarding facility is pretty special, if we do say so ourselves. The resources and amenities we offer include:

  • All our guests are housed in either outdoor runs that measure 4 feet by 25 feet, or indoor runs or kennels appropriate for their size
  • Guests staying indoors are taken outside three times a day to our fenced exercise areas
  • Guests are fed Purina EN gastrointestinal diet unless you wish to supply your own food
  • Towels and blankets are provided for each guest’s comfort (if your pet has a special toy or blanket that would make him or her feel more at home, please send it along)

Extra Tender Loving Care

Plus, for pets staying with us for the day or an extended stay, we offer an Extra Tender Loving Care program that includes:

  • Daily one-on-one playtime for dogs with a staff member in one of our large fenced-in yards, and inside the boarding wards for our feline and exotic friends
  • Activities range from a game of fetch to bird-watching to brushing and belly rubs – whatever your pet prefers

Safety requirements for boarding animals

To keep all our guests safe, we require all pets to be current on their vaccinations:

  • Dogs must be up to date on rabies, DHPP (a canine vaccine that prevents distemper, parvovirus, parainfluenza, and two types of adenovirus-caused hepatitis), and Bordetella (a bacterium associated with respiratory disease)
  • Cats must be current on rabies and FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia)
  • Ferrets must be up to date on rabies and distemper
