We know it can be stressful to leave your pet behind when you have to go out of town, especially if they are unwell or recovering from a surgery or procedure. At Paddock Park Animal Care Center, we want to help put your mind at ease.
We provide general boarding service for all of our patients as well and medical boarding services for pets with conditions that regular boarding services may not be able to accommodate.
We provide a fenced yard for pets to walk around in, multiple sizes of run for different pet sizes, temperature controlled boarding areas, and spacious and private kennels which are perfect for pets who don't react well to other cats or dogs.
Each morning, your dog will take a short walk outside for some fresh air with one of our veterinarians before breakfast. While they are outside, we will clean their kennel, stock it with fresh linens and disinfect it.
Depending on the physical capacity and ability of your pup, we will walk dogs who stay with us up to 3 times a day.
In the evening, dinner is served, and then we have one last walk before bedtime.
We keep dogs and cats separated from one another in our boarding areas in order to reduce stress on your pet during their stay. Your cat will be fed according to your specifications and their needs, and we will make sure that their routine is as close to at home as possible.
Additionally, we refresh linens and clean your kitty's room daily.
Your pet will be supervised by our expert veterinarians in the course of their stay with us. We will administer any require medications and care that your beloved pet needs. We will also keep our medicine and care to the same schedule to keep at home as much as is possible.
Your pet will be supervised by our expert veterinarians and nurses, who will administer medications and watch over them closely. Any required medications will be administered to your pet on the same schedule they are used to at home.
We are passionate about pets at Paddock Park Animal Care Center. Our entire veterinary team loves providing all of our patients and boarders with the love and attention they deserve during their time with us.

We've got everything your pet needs for a fun, recuperative and safe stay, including the following accommodations and amenities:
We offer boarding services for small domestic animals like dogs and cats as well as small mammals like rabbits, rats and mice and reptiles such as iguanas.
We offer daytime and overnight boarding services for pets. When you have to travel somewhere and can't leave your pet at home alone, our veterinarians are more than happy to help, regardless of the length of time.
For a small fee, we can care for your pet while you do what you need to do, and then you can reunite with them at the end of the day!
We have a large boarding facility and are able to accommodate up to 160 pets at any one time. If you give sufficient notice, we have plenty of space for boarding multiple pets at once for one pet owner.
Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to board family members (canine/canine or feline/feline) together.
Boarding fees will vary depending on the size of your pet, the length of their stay and any special requirements for care that they might have.
That being said, our prices are affordable and competitive, and we welcome you to contact us for a quote.
We request that all pets be dropped off or picked up during our regular business hours. We encourage reservations for any boarding bookings, especially during summer weekends, and holidays.
At these times, we recommend calling 2-3 weeks in advance to increase the odds that a spot will be available at the time you would like.
Food: We provide food for pets staying with us. However, please feel free to bring enough of your pet's regular food to last the duration of the stay.
Medication: If your pet takes any medication, bring it along for our staff to administer.
Toys: If your pet has a special toy or two, bring them along.
We will be glad to administer your pet's medications while they are with us.
Yes, feel free to call us during your pet's stay for updates. If there is a problem, we will contact you via the emergency contact information you provide.
Every pet has their own unique needs. In order to prepare your companion for their stay with us, we will go through the following steps before boarding your pet:
Call us to book, and to speak with us about any details we will need to know about you and your boarding needs. A team member will be more than happy to coordinate your booking with you.
Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered dogs. Pets must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.
It's important that we be completely sure that we are a good fit for your pet before they stay with us. To this end, a trial stay will involve a full day of daycare where we are able to take time to assess your pet's temperament and needs to ensure our facilities are right for them.
When you drop your pet off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your pet may feel during the process.
Make sure to spend some extra time with your pet beforehand and make sure they get vigorous exercise, so they are feeling happy and calm. When you arrive at our facility, make sure to stay calm, cheerful and confident while you are separated.
For pets that are not on a special diet, we provide Purina EN pet food.
Paddock Park Animal Care Center always accepts new patients! Our team of experienced vets are passionate about pet health in Ocala and beyond. We welcome you and your beloved pet to our veterinary family.
