Our loving and skilled caregivers are ready and waiting to give your pet the TLC he or she deserves during a stay at our full service facility. You will have peace of mind while you are away, knowing our staff will make sure that your pet is safe and well. In our climate-controlled facility, we offer more spacious pens for larger breed dogs or pairs of dogs or a variety of spacious kennels for smaller and medium sized dogs and cats. We have been actively boarding animals for over 50 years and offer well qualified staff to care for our geriatric patients as well as patients on medications or patients who have more specific needs during their stay.
If any medical problems arise during your pet's stay with us, such as loose stool, our kennel technicians will notify the doctor on staff. Should the problem persist, our doctor may examine the pet at the cost of a comprehensive exam. If the doctor feels that treatment is necessary, every effort will be made to reach you at the telephone numbers you leave with us at the time of your boarding intake. If we are unable to reach you in a reasonable amount of time, the pet will be treated and normal fees will be charged. It is very important that you leave a contact number where we reach you while you are away.
Due to the popularity of our boarding services, we recommend that you make reservations in advance, especially around the holidays. Please don't hesitate to contact us at (304)645-3550 with your questions or concerns or to make reservations. You may also book through our PetDesk app.
Dental health is a very important part of your pet's overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems. Your pet's teeth and gums are checked during their annual exam, in order to check for early signs of a problem. Have your pet checked sooner if you observe any of the following problems-bad breath, broken or loose teeth, reduced appetite or refusal to eat, or swelling in the areas surrounding the mouth. Dogs and cats over the age of three are 70-80% more likely to suffer from some form of dental disease. Untreated, periodontal disease can cause severe problems and pain for your pet. The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is to have their teeth professionally cleaned. Please call us at (304)645-3550 today to schedule your pet's dental cleaning.
While our doctors love a good mystery to figure out, it is better to keep your pet from getting sick in the first place. We want to examine your healthy pet and talk to you about what testing and vaccinations are most appropriate for your pet's lifestyle and the region in which we live. This exam will give us a baseline for your pet's unique body. Your pet also has the opportunity to become more familiar with our facility and staff, which makes future visits easier on both owner and patient.
