Boarding and Grooming Your Pet

Sequoyah Animal HospitalBoarding Your Pet at Sequoyah Animal Hospital

It isn't always feasible to take your pet with you when you travel, and it's vital to know that when you have to be out of town, an experienced, compassionate team is giving your pet the care and attention they need. At Sequoyah Animal Hospital, we work hard to provide a home away from home for your pet so he or she feels comfortable and safe throughout their entire stay with us. Knowing your pet is safe and well cared for will help give you the peace of mind necessary to fully enjoy your travel experience.

We offer climate-controlled, indoor kennels and a separate area for cat boarders away from the dogs. There is plenty of room for your dog or cat to stretch out. We also walk our canine boarders four to six times each day – a number unheard of at most pet boarding facilities.

Our goal is to ensure your pet is comfortable and happy while separated from you. Therefore, please feel free to bring a favorite toy or blanket to leave with your pet. We always have clean, comfortable blankets for our dog and cat guests so they enjoy fresh bedding.

Your pet's special health needs will be reviewed with you prior to your departure. If your pet requires a special diet, please feel free to send it with him. Our qualified, knowledgeable staff is skilled in medicine administration, food preparation, and managing acute or chronic medical conditions.

Additional Services

Pet owners can opt for their companions to be pampered with a bath and/or nail trim prior to returning home. We can also coordinate training time or a trip to our sister facility, Sequoyah's Muddy Buddies Dog Wash, for more in-depth grooming needs during your pet's stay.

  • For Dogs: Distemper, Adenovirus, Parvo, Rabies and Bordatella (Kennel Cough)
  • For Cats: Panleukopenia, Calici, Herpes and Rabies

Hours of Operation:

Grooming at Sequoyah Animal Hospital

Grooming is an important part of your pet's regular wellness care and a great way to keep him or her looking and feeling great. Regular grooming can also aid in the prevention and early detection of skin infections and growths before they become a serious problem.

The team at Sequoyah Animal Hospital is happy to offer baths and nail trims to our boarders and patients. For full-service grooming and professional bathing, we partner with our neighboring sister facility, Sequoyah's Muddy Buddies Dog Wash.

With Muddy Buddies' full-service grooming, you will receive one-on-one communication with a groomer of your choice to ensure you're completely satisfied with your pet's groom. Opened in 2009, our facility features an open floor plan with full visibility of the grooming stations to our customers. At Muddy Buddies, your pet will always be treated like a member of our family and receive the highest level of care and compassion.

Every breed of dog and cat is different, so the grooming for each pet is unique. We can recommend a grooming routine for your pet so you know exactly what to look for and how often. A typical full-service grooming appointment includes a bath, haircut, ear cleaning and hair removal, nail trim, and anal gland expression. A professional bath includes a bath with ear cleaning, nail trim, and anal gland expression. Muddy Buddies also offers self-service bathing units with walk-in tubs if you'd ever like to do the job yourself and leave the mess behind.

Our patient, experienced staff consists of professional groomers Penny Eustice, Ashley Lemons, and Megan Benninger and professional bathers Anna Skiles and Ruby White. We are open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 6pm and on Saturday from 9am to 6pm
