Our HospitalWelcome to VCA Greenback Pet Resort!
We look forward to meeting you, your dog, cat, and other pocket pets soon. Here at VCA Greenback Pet Resort, we strive to make sure your pet receives clean, courteous, safe, and individual care. We’re confidant that we can provide the best care for your pet(s) while boarding with us.
VCA Greenback Pet Resort offers two outside play yards for your dogs to run around (toys provided), a separate quiet area for our feline friends, and small/large runs to accommodate our canine friends. All runs are in a climate-controlled environment, with a raised cot and blankets/bedding for all boarding pets. We also offer day care seven days a week so that your pet receives the appropriate amount of play and rest when you can't be home to provide it.
VCA Greenback Pet Resort offers grooming seven days a week. We have two experienced groomers that are able to give breed-specific haircuts with a creative touch. We also offer grooming for our feline friends or a clean-up bath before your pet goes home from boarding.
We are conveniently located next door to VCA Greenback Animal Hospital in case of an emergency.
Local Medical IssuesThere are numerous local medical issues that can impact your pet's health requiring your attention over the entire year. For example, there's heartworm, which can affect both cats and dogs. Because it's transmitted by mosquitoes, which thrive in our region, it's a serious cause for concern. And because the winter temperatures here do not get cold enough to kill mosquito eggs, it's a year-round risk. The same is true for flea and tick infestation and intestinal parasites, each of which poses a problem in any season. And finally, contrary to what you'd expect, allergies are a year-round issue. Many pets suffer from skin and ear allergies, the signs of which include scratching, redness in the ears, and "scaly" skin.
It is also important to continue routine vaccines. Here at VCA Greenback Pet Resort, we require all pets to be current on flea prevention, DHLPP, rabies, and bordetella. For cats, we require flea prevention, FVRCP and rabies. Any close confinement of pets increases their chance of contracting viruses and diseases from other animals. This is why it’s important to keep up on vaccines, especially the bordetella. We require this vaccine to be current and given within the last six months.
