At Animal Hospital of River Oaks, we believe that providing quality pet care goes far beyond supplying only medical services. As a pet parent, you need a place where you can have all of your companion’s needs met in one convenient location. You need one-stop-shopping for all of your pet care needs. That’s why we’re happy to offer full service boarding and basic grooming as a part of our extensive line of pet care services.


Our clean, welcoming and spacious boarding facility provides the perfect “home away from home” for your pet, whether it’s for a few days or an extended period of time. Our team takes great joy in taking care of your cherished animal family member while you’re away, whether it be for holidays, vacations, business travel, weddings, hospital stays for you or family members, or any other reason that your time is limited. We’d love the opportunity to welcome your companion to spend some quality time with us!

Guests of our boarding facility can enjoy warm, comfortable accommodations that include all of the creature comforts your companion could ever need, from soft bedding to nutritious meals to lots of exercise and plenty of TLC. We are happy to accommodate any special needs that your pet may have, such as administering medication or feeding a special diet. A veterinarian is always on call should the need for medical attention arise with any of our guests.

For the safety and comfort of all of our guests, as well as our staff, we require that all animals boarding with us be up to date on all of their required vaccinations. Animals must also be free of any fleas prior to their stay with us. If you have any questions about these requirements or would like to schedule an appointment to have them taken care of, give us a call any time!

Being away from your pet for any amount of time can be stressful. You want to be certain that he or she is being well cared for in your absence. Let us provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that your companion is in excellent hands with us so you can relax and enjoy your time away!


Regular grooming does more than just make your pet look better. It can actually promote a healthier animal. Pets that are groomed have healthier skin, cleaner coats and make much more enjoyable companions. Need a fresh new style for your pet, or just a way to keep shedding and odor at bay? Whether it’s a simple nail trim or a full blown spa experience, our staff will have your companion looking, smelling and feeling their very best! We offer the following grooming services with our veterinary staff:
