Veterinary Care

You and your pet will be a welcome part of our family. Mapleview has a wide range of animal care options to fit your needs. If you can bring it, we can see it! That’s our motto about the many types of animals we serve. Besides popular house pets like cats and dogs, we see numerous ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs and birds. We’ve even performed a c-section on a goat! One of our clients has an exotic animal farm so we see her lemurs, African Civets, Galapagos Tortoises and Bobcats. You just never know what you may see in the building. While we’ll see just about anything, we do not see spiders, scorpions or monkeys!

Dogs and cats are welcome guests at Mapleview while their owners are on vacation.
Reservations are needed for all boarding, especially during the holidays.

  • Dogs stay in climate controlled indoor rooms. Larger dogs or multiple dogs (from the same family staying together) are boarded in runs which range in size from 3'x5' to 5'x8'. All runs contain resting benches. Smaller dogs are in their own room to help minimize the stress of being away from their families. All dogs are walked at least twice daily. Dogs may bring their favorite food, toys and treats for their stay. For those wishing to use our food, we feed Purina Pro Plan or Royal Canin GI Low Fat.
  • Cats have their very own climate controlled room away from the noisy dogs. Their accommodations are cat condos containing separate areas for sleeping and litter boxes. Cats are given supervised play time on the climbing trees and can look out the windows. Cats are welcome to bring their own food, toys and treats. For those wishing to use our food, we feed Science Diet.
We require the following vaccinations for our boarders: Dogs - annual distemper, bordetella and current rabies, Cats - current rabies
