Animal Hospital of Polaris offers more than the average vet clinic

June 19, 2011

Animal Hospital of Polaris, Lewis Center Vet ClinicNot only is the Animal Hospital of Polaris here to meet your pet’s wellness needs with routine medical examinations and vaccinations, but did you know that we also offer doggie daycare six days a week?  Did you know that we offer pet grooming every day of the week?  Did you know that we have a specific boarding facility just for cats and a special boarding facility just for exotic pets?

More important and a critical part of the Animal Hospital of Polaris is our ability to serve the more urgent needs of your pet.  The Animal Hospital of Polaris is there when you arrive home from work to find your favorite furry friend not feeling well or on a Sunday afternoon when your pet pooch sustains an injury romping through the backyard chasing a squirrel.  Throughout the week, our facility is open until 10 PM and then until 8 PM on the weekends to serve and treat your pet’s unexpected and urgent needs!

So you have decided to include your pet in your vacation plans this summer.  Now what?  Pets are typically not allowed in amusement parks, don’t ski very well, just don’t understand snorkeling and most don’t consider lying on the beach to be a fun-filled day.  Despite this, there are many relaxing and enjoyable things you can do with your pet.

Throughout North America, many inns, lodges and Bed & Breakfast places allow pets. Some even have pet vacation packages available.

Once you have decided on a place to stay, you have many activities to chose from.  Some people include their pets on walking tours through towns or historic areas.  Hiking is also a popular activity.  Some national parks allow pets but some do not.  Make sure you check with the park service before planning your vacation.

Camping with your pet is another alternative.  Again, if you plan to camp at a national park, check with the park service to make sure your dog will be welcome.

If you do; however, find yourself traveling to a far off destination or to a location that isn’t exactly pet friendly, call us at (614)888-4050 to reserve a special place for your pet to spend their vacation while you travel.  We’ll keep them active, happy and well cared for while you relax!
