Pet Boarding

Pet Boarding at Callahan Drive Animal Hospital in Knoxville, TN

Your dog or cat is part of your family, and we know you always want the best for your animal companion. However, there are times when it is just not possible for you to be at home to take care of your pet. While it is unimaginable to leave your furry companion at home alone, the question of where to board your cat or dog remains. That is why Callahan Drive Animal Hospital has expanded its services to now offer overnight animal boarding! Our pet boarding service provides the same high level of care that our long-term customers have come to expect from our team of dedicated pet professionals. Whether you are planning a quick overnight getaway or are going on an extended trip out of town, Callahan Drive Animal Hospital is the right choice to take care of your pet while you are away!


Feel Confident Your Animal Is in Good Hands When Boarding!

Being away from a pet you love can be a very stressful time for both animals and their owners. When you board your dog or cat at Callahan Drive Animal Hospital in Knoxville, you will have the peace of mind knowing that our veterinarian and his staff have decades of experience caring for animals, and we will always do our best to make sure your pet feels at home. You can enjoy your time away and rest assured knowing that your furry companion will get plenty of personal attention, exercise, and playtime while staying happy. Your pet's safety and health are our top concern, and our on-site veterinarian, Dr. James Hilla, will ensure your dog or cat stays well. If you desire, you can choose to schedule a medical or dental procedure for your pet while it is boarding with us.

Scheduling Pet Boarding Is Easy!

Although we provide all of the essentials your pet will need while boarding with us, we do recommend that you supply us with your pet's favorite food, especially if it has special dietary needs. You may also wish to pack your pet's favorite blanket, toys, or treats. We find these familiar items help to relax pets and enjoy their stay with us even more. 

All of our boarders must be up-to-date on all of their vaccines. If they are not current with their vaccines, make an appointment with our veterinarian.

Depending on the time of year, our boarding spots can fill up very quickly, particularly around the holiday season. To avoid disappointment, we recommend that you plan on reserving a space for your pet well in advance of your planned trip. Please do not hesitate to call Callahan Drive Animal Hospital at (865) 938-0243, or speak to us the next time you bring your pet in for care!

    Took my 3 y/o tortoise recently and I was pleasantly surprised. Not only was the vet knowledgeable and kind, but the overall visit (including an x-ray) was reasonably priced. I definitely recommend and I will be returning for future services

    Diane J.

    Doc Villa ALWAYS takes care of Studly Dudley!! I will ALWAYS recommend Callahan Drive Animal Hospital & their entire team as they truly do care for your animal in the same way you do!! Dr Villa has cared for Dudley for most of his SIXTEEN years & he’s still happy, healthy & strong!! I strongly believe, Stud has made it to this old age so gracefully due to the care he’s been given with this facility!! I would not trust another team than Callahan Animal with my “first child”, the only place for us to go!! Highly recommended!!

    Lauren H.

    10/10 experience was even better than hoped for. As a snake owner, you hear things about vets that make you question taking them and it was very comforting and nice to have someone who not only helped but took the time to talk about caring for them properly. Thank you guys so much!
