Grooming -

Of course we offer regular bathing, brushing and nail trims like most other veterinary hospitals. We are pleased to also offer limited grooming services for dogs and cats.  Depending on breed, we can take your pet "From Scruffy to Fluffy"  with a haircut or shave down, dematting, brush out, bath, ear cleaning and nail trim.  Call us to see what we can do for you.

We also offer limited grooming services for birds (nail and wing trims, beak shaping) as well as nail trims for most other little critters.

Boarding -

Boarding is available as our facility allows, on a first-come, first-served basis.  Space is limited, so we strongly recommend that you make advanced reservations if you would like your pet to stay with us.  

For the health and well-being of all animals, we require that your pet's vaccinations be up-to-date (distemper, influenza, rabies and bordatella for dogs; distemper and rabies for cats, and leukemia for cats that go outdoors) and that all boarding animals be free of fleas.  Animals found to have fleas when they are dropped off will be treated with Capstar at the owner's expense.  

Because we are a fully functional veterinary facility, animals that require vaccination or other medical attention can be treated while they are here boarding.  

The limited extent of our boarding allows us to give us your pets extra TLC while they are with us.  We have a large fenced yard and dogs are allowed group playtime once they have been introduced and determined to be good playmates.

We also offer day boarding or "doggie daycare" if you just want your pup to have a day playing with other canines.
