Boarding and Bathing Services

Metzler Veterinary Hospital has proudly been serving the pets and pet owners of the Clearwater, Florida community since 2003. We strive to provide excellent daycare, grooming, and boarding services for your dogs and cats.

MVH is designed to keep patients separate from vacationing pets. There are even separate entrances and outdoor spaces for the boarding and bathing areas of the facility.

Your Pet, Our Priority

Metzler Veterinary Hospital’s 1600 sq. ft boarding facility offers separate dog and cat boarding areas! Our boarding mission is to provide all of our guests with a comfortable, peaceful, and safe environment while away from home. We ensure that they will be closely observed and that any health or wellness concerns will be addressed by our on-site Veterinarians-

To ensure the safety of your pets, our facility is equipped with 24-hour monitoring by ADT as well as smoke alarms and an automatic fire sprinkler system.

Our Boarding & Bathing Staff

Our highly trained, educated kennel staff is here 7 days a week to care for our kennel guests. Our staff closely monitors our guest's food intake, appetite, and overall well-being to ensure a great time while you are away.

Outdoor Spaces

In order to make sure that our guests get plenty of exercise and fresh air, we offer two separate, fenced outdoor play yards.

Canine Area

Our canine area includes 17 runs, a small dog boarding area containing 11 cages of various sizes, and an indoor playroom.

Feline Area

Our “feline only,” area is completely separate from our canine boarding area for a stress-free, quiet environment. It consists of 6 cage arrangements with the capability of boarding multiple felines together if requested.

Our feline room offers great window views for our guests so they can watch the birds and other wildlife. We offer observed lounging time outside of the feline suites.

Grooming

Our grooming services consist of bathing and brush-outs, ear cleaning, nail trims, dremeling of nails, sanitary shaves, belly shaves, de-matting if mats are not severe; (severe mats will be trimmed or shaved), lion cuts for felines, and body shaves for canines.

You may also request brushing of your pet’s teeth and gums. If your pet requires sedation for any of the grooming services, we provide that as well at Metzler Veterinary Hospital.
