BOARDING FACILITY AND CARE
Leaving your pet behind is never easy. Let us provide you peace of mind and your pet compassionate, knowledgable care.
Why should Animal Care of Ponte Vedra be the first choice for boarding your pet? Because every patient is checked in by a doctor at admission and monitored by a technician during their stay. You can rest assured that all of your pets medical needs will be met by our well trained staff. Should any medical problems arise during your pet’s stay, you can have peace of mind that Dr. Waters will make sure they are treated appropriately.
All the animals under our care are exercised 3 times daily. Our outside fenced yard is shaded by a large oak tree and provides all our boarders the opportunity to sniff a little, play a little and take care of their business in a safe and comfortable environment. It is important to our staff that your pet be as stress free as possible while spending a few nights away from home, so we will try our best to keep your pet on their regular feeding, medication and walking schedule. We even have a fully equipped kitchen to warm a little something special for a finicky eater and a dishwasher to make sure our food and water bowls are sterilized daily.
We feel the most important aspect of our boarding facility is the soap, water and elbow grease that go into keeping all our runs and kennels clean, clean and clean - our dedicated staff use their knowledge of animal husbandry to keep your pet healthy and happy. We offer separate boarding facilities for cats and dogs, so that all feline friends can have a little peace and quiet during their stay.
