Boarding & Grooming

Safe Grooming and Boarding

In addition to our quality veterinary services, Fort Hunt Animal Hospital also provides excellent and safe grooming and boarding services for your pets. 

To expedite the check-in process, we ask you to complete our boarding agreement, and boarding services, or day boarding paperwork prior to dropping off your pet.


Advantages of boarding your pets with us include:

  • Access to medical care
  • Comfortable accommodations
  • Playtime – and the option to purchase additional time
  • Quality food
  • Medications given by trained staff

Rest assured that your pet is in excellent hands with our boarding and grooming staff. If you have any questions, please call 703-360-6100.

Required Vaccines for Boarded Pets

You may provide proof of vaccines and tests prior to or at the time of drop-off. If your pet doesn’t meet these requirements, we’ll do what we can to accommodate you and your animal. Whenever possible, our veterinarians recommend that pets be vaccinated at least two weeks prior to drop-off because most vaccines aren’t fully in effect until 14 to 28 days after the pet receives the vaccine.

  • Dogs:
    • Rabies (one to three years)
