Pet Hotel for Pets in Zimmerman, Elk River, Princeton, MN & Surrounding Areas

ZimmVet Award

Your pet deserves the best pet care while you are away. Leaving home is stress free at ZimmVet Pet Hotel. Located in our veterinary clinic, the Pet Hotel provides pets with their own private suite (accommodations can be made for pets from the same household to share a suite) and full access to our caring staff and pet–friendly facilities.

Our Pet Hotel offers King Suites, Standard Suites, Lofts, Dens, and Cat Cottages. Dogs are let out every 2–3 hours for relief breaks and all pets receive 2–6 hours of playtime per day either outside in one of our 6 outdoor play yards or inside our climate controlled exercise area. Pawmenities can be added a la carte for your best friend's stay and enjoyment. Our highly trained staff is monitoring guests from 6am until 10pm.

A free temperament assessment is performed on each dog to determine which play group they are most comfortable in. If at any time a pet appears fearful, stressed, or anxious the assessment will pause, allowing the dog time to acclimate to the stimulation. Until the pet is able to move forward comfortably, they will receive individual playtime with one-on-one attention from our caring staff.

Our new system allows guests to pay-what-you-stay by the day instead of by the night. This also applies to weekend reservations. Cancellation policy will continue to apply.

For example: Dropping off one dog Friday afternoon and picking up Sunday evening will equal 2.5 days (Friday PM, Saturday, and Sunday).

ZimmVet Pet Hotel Rewards

Client Testimonials

Last Saturday was our first time there and our experience was a 5! Everyone was very informative and welcoming! Thank you!

— Carole Lefebvre

Bringing both of our dogs to be cared for, we are extremely pleased with the care they are receiving. Sadie, Willow and I thank you all.

— Sue Lenz

I really appreciated the way the doctors at the clinic cared for Diamond. Over fifteen years of love with my wonderful dog and the quality of regular care she received at the clinic made it possible. I was especially touched by the sympathy card I receive after sadly having to put her to sleep, it shows they really care.

— Darryl Anton

After recently moving to Minnesota we researched many veterinarian options and we chose the Zimmerman Veterinary Clinic. The staff was honest, thorough and genuinely caring. Their follow-up on our pets care was outstanding. Itís worth the trip for your petís care.

We have taken our pets to the Zimmerman Vet Clinic for 20 years. Even when our visit was a sad one, we were treated with kindness and courtesy. The staff has always been professional and friendly. We highly recommend Zimmerman Vet Clinic to anyone who loves their pet.

— Bratsch

The staff at Zimmerman Veterinary Clinic has taken care of my dogs since 1979. I am especially pleased with the care of my last companion/friend, Ruby Mae. She received the best care I could have expected. The staff gave her loving care and attention during her whole lifetime. I canít thank them enough for being there for support. I will continue to use them with my new friend, Baily Sue.

— Sincerely, Dale Cannon

We love Zimmerman Vet! They give the best care & have a wonderful staff!
