Southern Animal Hospital is proud to offer doggy daycare on a limited basis.
Is your dog hyper when arrive home from being cooped up all day? Does your dog need socialization or play time with other dogs? Is your dog nervous and fearful in new places? Or do you have a dog that needs TLC during the day when you are at work? We offer a variety of options for daycare, ranging from single day packages to month packages.
We offer a small grass yard for supervised playtime, as well as indoor areas. We will tailor playtime to each dog's preference. We will work with you to learn your dog's preferences to make day care as fun as possible!.
We will also work with dogs that are nervous in new environments to become less fearful in the vet clinic. Throughout the day, we will have short sessions using only positive reinforcement to help your dog become comfortable in the vet clinic. This will include helping your dog become comfortable with handling necessary in veterinary procedures.
And for those dogs needed a little extra TLC we can provide care during the day when you are at work, including medication administration and nursing care. (Note - extra charges may apply.)
