If you live in the communities of Shelbyville, Smyrna, or Lebanon, let your pet stay with us at Veterinary Associates of Murfreesboro the next time you go on vacation. Your cat or dog will feel right at home in our comfortable facilities. We maintain separate boarding areas for dogs and cats, ensuring that all animals will have a pleasant, stress-free stay.

Our caring staff members spend lots of quality time with each pet, providing them with walks in our ¾ acre yard three times a day. Our boarding area for small and large dogs features indoor and outdoor runs, giving your canine companion plenty of room to stretch out and rest. Owners can choose to have their dogs housed in our climate controlled indoor runs, or your pets can enjoy a sheltered outdoor run during the day and sleep indoors overnight.

We provide Hills Science Diet for all kennel guests. If your pet is used to a different diet, we invite you to bring in a daily supply of your pet's food from home to avoid any upset tummies. Our staff monitors the appetite and urination/bowel movements of each boarded pet, and our veterinarians will be alerted if any problems are noted. We want your pets to be happy and healthy while they are in our care.

We offer optional bathing and grooming services to our boarding guests before they go home. If you would like to have your pet bathed or if you would like us to provide any other services during your pet’s stay, please let us know when you make your reservation.

All pets staying with us must be current with all core vaccinations including bordetella (kennel cough).

Because space in our boarding kennel can fill up quickly, we ask that you make reservations in advance, especially around the holidays. Please call Veterinary Associates of Murfreesboro at (615) 895-1240 to reserve a spot for your pet or for pricing information.
