Health, Wellness, and Immunization
We strive to prevent illness whenever possible and encourage a preventive approach to your pet’s medical care. We will assess your pet’s risk and make recommendations for testing and vaccination to help provide the best medical care for your pet. We also offer wellness plans to make the best care affordable now, with low monthly payment options.
Regular professional dental cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s overall health. We use modern and safe ultrasound to clean each tooth thoroughly – above and below the gum line. Dental assistants polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Digital Dental radiology is available to ensure complete dental care is available to your pet.
Illness doesn’t always have a physical cause. We can assess your pet’s needs and if necessary, refer your pet to a trained animal behaviorist who can help determine the cause of such disorders as separation anxiety and obsessive behavior. As a team, we can create a treatment plan that will provide the best outcome for both you and your pet.
We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include: fully trained veterinary and technical staff, to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet; heated surgical blankets for greater comfort; advanced sterilization techniques; ECG and oxygen saturation monitors; intensive after surgery care and full blood testing.
This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. Pregnancy exams are also available. When an ultrasound is necessary, there are several trained veterinary ultrasonographers in the area that can be scheduled to come to our facility and provide the service.
Acupuncture is one of the four branches of traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. It is a tool that can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine to improve your pets quality of life in many disease processes, and also in preventative medicine. The most common uses of acupuncture in veterinary medicine are pain management and anxiety, but acupuncture is also very useful in many chronic internal medicine diseases. Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin sterile needles into specific points on the body in order to cause a therapeutic effect. Ninety-five percent of patients are comfortable with this therapy, and due to the relaxation effect, some animals will actually fall asleep during their acupuncture treatment.
Bathing and Grooming
Our caring healthcare team will lather your pet in luxury with high quality veterinary approved shampoos. Our special, cleansing baths remove dirt, debris and odors – but won’t remove your pet’s topical flea control. Services also include nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal gland expression. We are also a flea free facility so your pet will receive a complimentary capstar tablet during his or her stay with us.

We offer boarding for both dogs and cats. Separate dog and cat wards are maintained to keep your furry friends relaxed. We understand that pets are like our children – we feed, nurture and lavish attention on them. Our highly qualified kennel attendants do the same when you can’t be there. We provide tender loving care (such as brushing and cuddling), and supervised outdoor playtime to keep them happy and active. We are a flea free facility so your pet will be provided with a complimentary capstar tablet on the day of arrival.

Hospice and Euthanasia
Saying goodbye to a long-time friend is painful. We work with clients to ensure their pet’s comfort and dignity. Services include taking care of the remains as directed by the client. We work with Southeastern Pet Cremation to ensure that the highest level of service is achieved and that our clients have many options available to them.
Doggie Day Care
We have worked closely with our trainer India Hopkins with Positive Outcomes Dog Training to design our Doggie Daycare program in a way that is safe and enjoyable for all the dogs that come in. We have policies in place to create peaceful playgroups made to be fun for all dogs while they are here. Some of our policies include Temperament Testing for all dogs before being accepted into our daycare program. This testing is used to ensure that daycare is a good fit for them. We use positive reinforcement techniques to help correct any undesirable behaviors while here. Please note, Doggie Daycare is not for every dog. If your dog does not pass our temperament testing it does not mean your dog is a bad dog, just that Doggie Daycare might not be the best environment for them.
We provide more intimate playgroups consisting of no more than 10 dogs which is designed to be less overwhelming. All our attendants have been formally trained by our trainer, India, on handling difficult situations and creating a setting for positive play to help avoid those situations from occurring. Our program uses change of environment and frequent breaks to help reduce boredom or over stimulation that can sometimes lead to incidents.
A typical day at our daycare will involve smaller playgroups that will be switched between having playtime in our indoor rooms and time in our outdoor play yard where they will get a chance to run around even more. We will also have nap time halfway through the day where the lights will be lowered, and cots will be brought out so that they have time to relax before playing again. All these policies are in place to help make our Doggie Daycare program be as fun and stress free for the dogs as possible.
CRAH Doggie Daycare Temperament Test
The purpose of this temperament test is to help CRAH Doggy Daycare maintain a safe environment for the employees and the dogs in their care.
All dogs are individuals, and they have their own unique behavior profile. This test will help you determine if a dog who is new to the playgroup will be comfortable and enjoy the doggy daycare setting.
How does the temperament test work?
Each section will be graded as pass/fail. If the dog who is being tested passes one section, they go on to the next section, and so on. If they pass all five steps, they will move into the observation period. The observation period lasts for the first five days that the dog visits after the initial temperament testing day.
If the dog fails any one of these sections, the temperament test is then over, and the dog is disqualified from attending the daycare. Not all dogs are meant to be in a doggy daycare setting, and that’s alright. If the dog is disqualified, and the client would like to have other recommendations, we will make those available.
If you would like to schedule a Temperament Test to be evaluated for Doggie Daycare, please call our Doggy Daycare office at (910) 408-7387 or (910) 408-PETS or email us at email@example.com. We hope to see your dogs soon!
