Boasting round-the-clock staffing and all-day supervision, Dog Day Afternoon ensures your pawed protégé is always safe and never gets lonely during his or her one-day and one-night stay. Boarding services include, at no extra cost, playtime in large fenced yards, walks, and standard medication administering. Check in on your pooch with Dog Day Afternoon’s playroom webcams, giving you front-row access to the frolicking and fun that your dog is enjoying while you’re stuck at a sales conference in Fort Myers. Most pups sleep alone in their own private, temperature-controlled room—if you have more than one dog for boarding, however, you can request keeping the whole furry family together. For utmost safety, little dogs and big dogs are boarded and tended to separately.
Plantation Pet Resort helps pets feel at home by giving them ample exercise and attention on 11 acres of grassy play space. Dogs bound into the day at 7:30 a.m., roaming in two shaded outdoor play yards—one for big dogs and one for small. A fenced grassy area provides plentiful space for energetic games of frisbee, fetch, and Pin the Tail on the Schnauzer. Canines barrel across turf and engage in friendly tussles for two hours as staff members give pets’ heated and air-conditioned suites a thorough clean. Happily weary dogs are led back to their spacious accommodations for breakfast and a nap, returning outside four to five more times during the day for a half hour or more. At night, TVs, DVDs, and radios keep pets from missing the comforts of home and the antics of favorite talk-show hosts.

Whether she's redirecting animal energy during acupuncture treatments or mixing up a traditional Chinese herbal remedy, Dr. DeVuyst keeps her patients comfortable and relaxed. In addition to dogs and cats, Dr. DeVuyst also heals horses with equine acupuncture treatments.
