If your dog needs veterinary care during a stay, we are ready to go. We call you on the way, and if it's feasible to go to your regular vet, we do so. After hours, it's only about 10 minutes to the UT Vet School.
We support you and your vet and we follow general recommendations for preventing disease. Our current requirements include rabies, distemper/parvo+ combination, and bordetella. For puppies, please let us know how many vaccinations have already been done.
We are happy to administer medications. Elaborate procedures may include a small additional charge.
We recommend that you bring your dog's regular food in sufficient quantity. This helps minimize upset stomachs. If you prefer, we're glad to feed one of our own high quality dry dog foods.
Bedding / Toys
Feel free to bring something that smells like home, but no expensive beds or one-of-a-kind toys that your dog can't live without. We do our best to return everything in good condition, but we hate to be responsible for irreplaceble items.
Grooming / Bathing
If you'd like to have your dog spruced up before returning home, just let us know. Discounts apply for picking up after check-out time (1 pm).
If you want your dogs to share a run, and if they can live and eat together peacefully, you get a discount. Check out our rate sheet above.

Just let us know what you want for your dog. Basic options include bath only, complete bath (with nail trim, ear cleaning and brush out), or grooming per breed.
Experienced, careful and gentle, our groomers will get the job done, and your dog might even have fun!
We never sedate dogs for grooming. Sometimes we have to give dogs a break, not do the whole groom all at once. Your dog will let us know when it's time for a rest, and we respect that.
We can use your own favorite dog shampoo or one of our medicated products. If you'd like your dog's nails to be dremeled instead of cut, we are glad to oblige. Anal glands, de-matting, and flea/tick treatments are all no problem for us.
