Pet Boarding FAQs

If you need to travel away from your home for an extended period of time, and you have a dog or cat that you care for, finding someone to tend to your pet’s needs while you are unable to do it yourself is extremely important. Consider bringing your pet to Lone Tree Animal Care Center. We provide pet boarding for those in the NE Blackstone district, old market area, and NE quarters area of Omaha. Here are some frequently asked questions about pet boarding.


What Can I Expect When I Board My Pet?

Your dog or cat will be well cared for by professionals who are available at all hours of the day and night. We have a veterinarian available to handle any emergencies if they happen to arise, giving you the peace of mind that your dog or cat will not suffer from illness or an injury without attention. Your pet will be provided with a safe and comfortable living space and will have plenty of interaction with staff members throughout their stay.

What if My Pet Needs Special Care?

If your dog or cat requires a special diet or if it needs medication on an ongoing basis, our pet boarding staff members are available to keep track of feeding and medication administration. Simply provide us with information about the frequency of feeding, the type of food your pet routinely eats, and the portion size he usually eats. For medication, provide our veterinarian with the prescription if you did not receive it from our facility and our staff will keep your dog or cat on schedule while you are away.

What Will My Pet Do during His Stay?

We have plenty of space for dogs and cats to rest, play, and socialize. If your pet does not get along with other animals, he will have an area to relax without anxiety from other pets being around. If you have a dog that enjoys socializing, he will have the opportunity to do so during outdoor excursions with dogs of similar size. Let us know about your pet's preferences before their boarding session. Each pet needs an examination by our veterinarian to determine their health before his stay. Your pet will have plenty of attention from staff members throughout their boarding stay to keep him active. If you wish, bring along a few items from your home, such as toys or bedding items, to make your pet's stay comforting.

If you live in the NE Blackstone district, old market area, or NE quarters area of Omaha, contact Lone Tree Animal Care Center to make an appointment with our veterinarian for a well-visit. Call us at 402-389-3356.
