The privately owned Overland Animal Hospital & Pet Resort spans 17,000 square feet of facilities that more resemble a boutique pet hotel than an animal clinic. Claiming accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association, Overland’s general practice veterinarians see to pet health with services that range from vaccinations to pet hospitalization. The boarding facilities cater to both canines and felines even during the holidays, comforting lodgers with heating, air conditioning, and unlimited access to the outdoors for dogs. Onsite webcams similarly comfort owners, letting them check in on their furry friends.
Dogs can also come to daycare, where they get to romp with similarly sized pooches during hours of outdoor play. Individual daycare programs are available for pups who prefer working on their memoirs to frolicking with other dogs. Further services include professional dog training and grooming, during which staff only use hypoallergenic products.
Nervous pets are eased into exams at the attentive hands of the Indian Tree Animal Hospital staff. Beastly bodies are thoroughly scoured in a new-patient consultation, key for early detection of disease and conversion into a reptile. Regular heartworm tests help ensure the health of a pet's heart, keeping it strong enough for epic trips to the dog park and chasing marathon runners who smell like cars.
One dark and stormy night, Dr. Lee Woods, DVM received an unexpected visitor. Spooked by the clamor and rain, a doggie-daycare regular had burst through her owner’s storm door and run to the other place where she felt safe: Broadway Animal Hospital.
Dr. Woods, whose work on behalf of homeless animals earned him a humanitarian award from the Humane Society, established the hospital in 1991. The recently remodeled facility soon earned accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association—a distinction held by only 14 percent of animal hospitals. Here, Dr. Woods works alongside several animal specialists, including a certified canine massage therapist, a groomer, and a professional bacon chef. Services range from immunizations and boarding to surgery, emergency care, and house calls. From 2010–2013, the Daily Camera recognized Dr. Woods's hospital with a gold award for best veterinarian.
