In addition, our veterinary staff are here Monday - Saturday,  and on-call on Sunday, should an illness or emergency arise while your pet is staying with us.  Choose from doggie daycare, standard canine and feline suites or the VIP treatment complete with a 30 minute "river walk"* and frozen peanut butter yogurt treat in the afternoon.  (*Please note that on days where there are extreme temperatures we may not be able to do walks)
