Canine Day Camp at river pet resort offers dogs and opportunity for socialization and exercise in a safe environment. Our day camp groups are small, which allows river pet's staff to pay close attention to each pooch. We are quite different from other "doggy day cares". Our program is designed to make each dog's experience at river pet interesting as they enjoy different planned activities throughout the day. Our day camp guests are divided into play groups based on their size and personality. Each group rotates so they can experience everything from group play, individual games, pool time (if they choose to participate- otherwise they can just watch others in the water) and quiet time (where staff members will pet and brush your dog while they relax and watch TV or listen to music).
Canine day camp helps keep your dog physically and emotionally healthy. It is the ideal setting for your dog to socialize and unwind instead of staying at home alone while you are busy during the day. Remember, you can check your pet from work or your vacation by viewing them via our web cam. Day camp is offered at a reduced rate for boarding guests.

Physical Rehabilitation and Acupuncture
Physical rehabilitation can help pets that are recovering from an injury or surgery, or those with chronic problems such as arthritis, hip dysplasia, nerve injury or chronic pain. We will discuss your pet's problems in detail and form a personalized plan to improve your pet's condition.
Therapy plans usually involve in-hospital treatments as well as home-care plans. Physical rehabilitation is designed to enhance your primary veterinarian's care and not to replace it. We will work closely with referring veterinarians to coordinate your pet's care. Please ask your veterinarian to call us with a referral. You may also call us directly and we will initiate the referral process with your veterinarian.
After an initial consultation. appointments can be scheduled or "drop-offs" for treatments can be arranged. Our office hours are flexible and in most cases can be altered to meet the needs of you and your pet's busy schedule.
River pet can accommodate disabled pets that require medication and monitoring. Boarding of pets for physical rehabilitation is available in our comfortable suites. Our staff includes veterinary technicians who can provide extensive nursing care in coordination with your veterinarian's recommendations and with our doctor's supervision.
