Our Services


When you need to go out of town and cannot take your pets with you, bring them to Southshore Animal Hospital where there are compassionate pet lovers and qualified animal caretakers that you know and trust. Offering full service boarding to pet owners in Metairie, Jefferson, Kenner, and New Orleans, we provide a home away from home where your pets will be treated like family.

At Southshore Animal Hospital, our indoor climate controlled facility is always kept clean and comfortable for our boarders. Our capable and kindly veterinary assistants will provide your pet with individualized, personal attention including plenty of hugs and pats. Each dog has supervised outdoor time several times a day so that they can play and take care of business.

You are welcome to bring food from home if your pet is on a special diet. We feed all boarders Hill’s Science prescription diet for sensitive stomachs. Our staff monitors the appetite and urination/bowel movements of each pet guest, and our veterinarians will be alerted if any problems are noted.

We pride ourselves on our safety and reliability, for example, each boarder is checked in using a security protocol matching pets to owners. We also require that all animals staying at Southshore Animal Hospital must be up to date on their vaccines. This is for the protection of your pet and for the protection of hospitalized patients.

Whether you need us overnight, for an extended stay, or just during the day, give us a call to reserve your spot. Because space in our boarding kennel can fill up quickly, especially for the holidays, we ask that you book your reservation early. Please call for pricing and availability.
