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.

Client Testimonials

Wonderful Care! We have been bringing both dogs to ZimmVet for years. We always get great care and everyone is friendly. Our Lab gets so excited when she gets there. Our other dog suffers from great anxiety and they treat her so well. They know the personality of both so well and know how to treat them.

— Lee D.

I would not know of any other veterinarian that has a more caring staff that are patient with us and take the time to listen about our three Pomeranians. Zimmvet knows how important our girls are to us and I would not take a chance on bringing them anywhere else.

— Ken G.

Our vet honored our desire to keep expenses down by providing us with estimates of the treatment we could choose from while trying to find out what was wrong with our very sick puggle. No cost was hidden. On top of all this, our dog was given excellent care. We love Zimmvet.

— Carisa M.

I have and will continue to recommend ZimmVet to others. The staff is personable and professional on all levels, both to the human clients and the animal patients. It is reassuring to me to know that I can count on them for any assistance I may need in caring for my pets now and in the future.

— Lou S.

We love Zimmvet! And most importantly, Handsome loves everyone at Zimmvet! We use their vet services and pet hotel and couldn't be happier with both. Highly recommend!

— Leigh C.

Our experiences over the years are always positive, even if the outcome isn't. The doctors and staff are warm and friendly. They are also very professional and thorough. We feel strongly that we get great value for our dollar, as well as wonderful pet care.

— Laurie C.

ZimmVet Pet Hotel has provided extended stay care for our German Shepherd and Black Labrador twice in the last two years. They did a great job of caring for them both during a two-week trip - not only catering to their needs but their concerned owners with email updates and photos. We can't say enough good things about ZimmVet Pet Hotel!!

— Curt V.

ZimmVet has well trained and competent professionals, but even more important to me is that they are sincerely 'good' people. They care about you and your pets - you're just not another record. In addition to the great staff, they offer a very broad range of services - even day care and training classes!
