Boarding and Grooming


At Dogwood Veterinary Hospital and Laser Center, we provide dog and cat boarding services. We understand that your pet is your family and we are pleased to be trusted with their care during your absence. Our dedicated team is fully trained, caring, and compassionate, able to meet your four-legged friend’s needs and provide the most excellent treatment possible.

One of the many benefits of boarding your pet with Dogwood Veterinary Clinic is that medical attention is only a step away for your pet. Our boarding area is overseen by our veterinary team and each of our guests is monitored throughout their stay to ensure that they are eating, relieving themselves, and behaving normally. We are committed to ensuring your pet’s safety and comfort while they stay with us, in addition to giving them a great time.
