We provide boarding services for your pet in a safe, clean environment. We require all animals boarding with us to be current on their Distemper, Bordetella, and Rabies vaccines. If you are not a regular client of Gage Animal Hospital, please provide us with your pet's vaccination records when your pet is dropped off. If your pet needs to be updated on his or her vaccinations, we will be happy to do that for you.  

If your pet is on a special diet, please provide us with enough food for his or her stay. You may also bring any special toys, blankets, etc. to make your pet feel more comfortable while you're away.

A quiet, separate ward is provided for your felines. Fresh litterboxes are provided a minimum of 3 times daily.

Gage Animal Hospital Services
Early detection, recognition, and timely intervention of medical conditions are the key to a long, healthy life. We recommend comprehensive physical exams for your pet at least once a year.  

For new kittens and puppies, vaccinations should begin at 8-10 weeks of age. Although we recommend waiting 6 months before spaying or neutering your pet, an early spay/neuter option is available for pets at least 9 weeks of age.

In additon to the services listed above, we recommend that pets be on heartworm preventative and seasonal flea and tick control.

  • routine examinations 
  • dental cleaning 
  • tooth extraction 

Your pet's dental health is an important part of his or her general health, yet dental care is one of the most commonly overlooked areas of pet health care.  

Sixty percent of pets have some type of dental disease. If left untreated it can lead to more serious health problems including heart, lung and kidney disease.  Regularly provided preventative dental care can significantly reduce the cost of your pets healthcare over a lifetime.

  • diagnostic imaging 
  • orthopedic services 
  • declaws 
  • soft tissue procedures
Whether it is a routine spay / neuter or a complicated orthopedic surgery, you can rest assured your pet is in good hands at Gage Animal Hospital. 

Dr. Shipman and our technicians work hard to make sure every aspect of our anesthetic, surgical care and post-surgical pain management is the best available today in veterinary medicine.

Regenerative Medicine
  • adipose derived stem-cell therapy 
  • platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy
Is your pet suffering from arthritis, degenerative joint disease, ligament (ACL) or tendon injuries? Stem-cell regenerative therapy is available to provide natural pain relief, increased mobility, and an improved quality of life for your pet. 

PRP therapy utilizes the natural healing properties of the body's blood platelets to reduce pain, stimulate healing, and rapidly restore damaged tissue to a healthy state.
