We Cater to Your Lifestyle and Needs
The history of our hospital and wellness center is a long and rich one. As our community has changed over the years, so have we. We see dogs, cats, birds, small mammals, and exotic pets. Our clients are astronauts, pilots, teachers, inventors, doctors, authors, students, veterans, refinery workers, attorneys, and every other profession you can imagine.
Thanks to all of this, Dickinson Animal Hospital & Pet Wellness Center has developed the following services specifically to meet the variety of needs your modern-day, busy lifestyle often dictates:
- Pet boarding and play days
- Pet insurance
- Full on-site pet pharmacy
Pet Boarding We offer unique boarding packages to suit your pet’s needs while you are away. Most packages include: temperature controlled private areas, private potty breaks, daily tasty treats, “fetch and stretch”, personal tummy rubs, and daily grooming. We provide a 1600 square foot, safety fenced, natural grass play area that your dog will enjoy.
Cats are boarded in an entirely different section of our facility. In fact, we even use different air-control systems for dogs and cats, an effective—and often overlooked—way to reduce pet stress.
Group Play We also make sure your dog is grouped with dogs of similar size and play style. Pools, tunnels, and other toys make the play experience a fantastic one.
Grooming Not every pet likes the bathing experience, but most pets love a good massage. Our HydroSurge pet bathing system gets your pet clean while giving them a pampering experience to produce the healthiest coat possible.
This unique grooming system produces a vigorous, penetrating, combing action spray of shampoo and water through a specially designed hand held sprayer, penetrating hair down to the skin to flush away dirt, debris, loose hair, dead skin, and dander.
Pharmacy We maintain a fully stocked pharmacy with hundreds of prescription drugs and dosages, over-the-counter products, and prescription diets for patients with specific dietary needs—because treating and medicating your pet should be a convenient experience whenever possible.
We also utilize a specialty pharmacy that can compound many drugs into different forms and dosages as needed. Unlike online pharmacies, all of our products come directly from authorized and legitimate distributors and manufacturers, so we know the product has not been diverted from overseas, counterfeited, relabeled, or mishandled during shipping or storage.
We are committed to prescribing only medications that have been approved for use in pets whenever possible, rather than human generics that don’t always work as expected in pets. You can trust that our veterinarians will not prescribe nor dispense medication combinations that may be harmful to your pet.
Microchipping Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. We offer the most widely used microchip product, which increases the chance of a safe recovery should you become separated from your pet.
Microchip placement is easy, the chips last a lifetime, and we register your pet for you. No one wants to endure the helpless feeling of having a lost pet and, thanks to microchipping, you won’t have to.
Pet Insurance With the growing capabilities of veterinary care for your pet, insurance is a very good investment. We are not affiliated with any pet insurance company directly, but have information on the leading companies that provide this service. Over the last few years, we have seen an increasing number of clients who use pet insurance, and in many cases this has allowed the client to provide care for their pet that, without insurance, may not have been feasible.
