There is nothing more luxurious than a relaxing vacation away from home. If you’re a pet owner, however, it can be hard to relax while worrying whether the neighbor kid gave Oscar his meds or made sure Coco got enough exercise.

Our practice offers pet boarding so you never have these worries. You can kick back knowing that your beloved pets are properly cared for in a friendly, fun, secure and nurturing environment. Our climate controlled facilities remain clean and orderly at all times.

We provide comfortable bedding or bring along your pet’s own washable bedding from home. Maybe Coco has a favorite toy that would make her feel more at home. Our kennels and condos have plenty of room for your pet to move around and make themselves comfortable. We even have adjoining rooms for pets in the same family.

Each pet gets plenty of physical exercise, fresh air, and sunlight. Our practice hosts social playtime in small groups or you can ask that we walk your pet individually. We provide top-notch nutrition, or you can bring food from home so that there is no change in your pet’s diet while away from home. We know that sometimes change is stressful and your pet may not want to eat, it might be a good idea to bring along some treats or something to make their food seem more desirable.

We are well equipped to handle any ongoing medical needs your pet may have. We regularly administer oral medications, breathing treatments, IV or injectable medications or fluids. We also address individual feeding needs. We monitor your pet the entire time they board with us. Should they become sick or injured we would attend to their condition and communicate with you about the issue immediately.

If you have never boarded your pet before, we invite you to come down and tour our facility. We want to make sure that we are the right match for you and your pet. We want you to feel comfortable with the level of care and attention we provide and we want your pet to feel comfortable during their sleepover party. We require proof of current vaccinations for all pets boarding with us.
