Products & Services

Bathing / Boarding

Bathing / Boarding

Out-patient drop-off service is provided at no extra cost to our clients. You may drop off your friendly companion before 10:00 am and pick up after 4:30 pm that afternoon.

Bathing - We do pet baths Monday thru Friday. Pets being bathed must be in the clinic before 10:00 am. Every Wednesday and Thursday when you bring in your pet for a bath we will trim the nails, clean the ears and express the anal glands at no extra charge. We will perform these services any other day of the week for our normal charge. The cost of bathing is based on the pet's weight, length of coat and the type of shampoo used. Appointments are required.

Boarding - We provide boarding for our patients 365 days a year. We currently have 15 runs and 8 additional modules for smaller dogs. We have a separate cattery for our feline patients. Feel free to come at any time during normal business hours for a tour of our facility. Please see our Boarding Policy for additional information and fees on these services.



Supplements, Vitamins and Pet Care - Our Animal Clinic carries a complete line of Veterinary Diets and nutritional supplements, as well as a full line of pet care products. We would be happy to help you select the products best suited for the age, health and lifestyle of your pet.

Neartown Animal Clinic also carries a variety of Lupine Leashes and Collars for all of your dogs and cats.

  • I would recommend this business
  • Close to home, always get in, boarding and bathing!
  • A little pricey, but same as the other veterinarians in this area near river oaks.

I bring my 2 dogs in to board frequently. I'm not sure what they're doing when they board here but they can barely wait to get in the door and run back to the kennel. All the doctors are great and the dogs love them as well. Dr. Murray is the surgeon that did a knee surgery on my dog and it healed perfectly.

Value for moneyMy dogs love it!
Service & supportThey call to remind me of appts & follow-up after appts!

Customer Testimonials

This clinic rocks!! Saturday 11am our Borzoi wipes out while running full speed on our driveway and slices the skin over her thigh and knee open. We discovered Neartown Animal Hospital is open until 1pm. They took us in as new clients! 5 stitches later and laser treatment, our Addie is ready to go home! The vets and staff are awesome, friendly and professional! Super reasonably priced!! Thank you!!!

Thank you so much for the care and compassion you gave to our Willy. Your staff is incredible and so helpful during a hard time for us. We really appreciated all you did for us.

I recently adopted an abandoned cat. He is still a kitten and already fixed, so he's a little different than other strays. The vet, vet tech, and receptionist were all great. They answered ALL my questions and helped educate me on what would best for him going forward. They were also so gentle with him and had plenty of treats on hand. He has his next round of shots scheduled in three weeks. Super glad I found a clinic close to home where you can really tell animals are their number one priority. Highly recommend!
