Hey have you heard? Not only is Tender Heart your premier vet clinic in the Ozarks but we are also a state-of the-art boarding facility for your canine and feline family members! Our canine boarding facility consists of both individual and family suites located in our climate-controlled kennel with an abundance of natural lighting. Your pups’ run will be cleaned and provided clean bedding and fresh water twice a day for optimum comfort. Unlike other facilities, dogs are given one-on-one potty and play time outside with our trained kennel staff three times a day! Don’t feel like lugging your dog’s big container of food back and forth? No need to worry! We can provide our gastrointestinal friendly food for them at no additional cost.

Let’s not forget our feline family members! Our cat boarding room consists of kitty condos located away from all hustle and bustle of the vet clinic and any barking dogs. Your cats’ condo and litter box will be cleaned twice daily. Fresh water and bedding will be provided twice daily as well. With plenty of windows for natural light, Feliway diffusers, and their own air purification system your cat will be feeling right at home during their stress-free vacation!


What’s even better is that all of this is attached to a premier vet clinic! Not only is your pet closely monitored by our highly trained kennel staff but our veterinary technicians keep an eye on them as well. If needed, our veterinarians are never far away. We want to ensure you pets’ health during their stay so every potty break, feeding time, activity and medication is meticulously recorded on their boarding sheet. So, if you’re looking for tender love and care for your pet while you’re away then look no further then Tender Heart!
