During Your Pet's Stay

Where will your pet stay on vacation? Our Paradise Pet Resort offers more than just a bed and a meal. When staying at the Jonesboro Family Pet Hospital, your pet receives personal attention from our trained and educated staff, complimentary healthy meals, and special care. During your pet's stay you can rest easy knowing that they are under the observation of our Patient Care Specialist and supervision of our Doctors. All pets are boarded indoors in temperature-controlled, light, clean, spacious quarters with separate facilities for dogs and cats and exotics. Each pet is fed based on your instructions. Bathing and pedicures (by request), and veterinary services can even be scheduled during your pet’s stay!

  • Large dogs enjoy spacious indoor areas with warm, clean linens to snuggle in. Small dogs have individual kennels with plenty of bedding to curl up in.
  • Cat owners may choose either a medium or large kennel or condo. Housemates may more easily share a condo. Condos have elevated ledges for kitties to curl up on.
  • Your pet stays in indoor, climate controlled comfort.
  • All dogs are individually (or with their fur family if boarding together) taken out in our large fenced in yard to potty and have exercise at least twice daily.
  • All pets go home with a report card with comments on their stay from our boarding staff.
  • At Paradise Pet Resort, we feed and recommend Hill's Sensitive Stomach, which helps to reduce any boarding stress diarrhea. We also have Hill's veterinary diets for specific health conditions if needed. If your pet is on a different diet, we recommend that you bring their own food for their stay.
  • Daycare—Our trained and caring team members will provide excellent care and attention for all pets that come in for daycare. Pets can come in as early as 7 am for daycare during the week, and 8 am on Saturdays.

We Offer These Additional Services

  • Pedicure* -(we trim the nails and smooth off any rough edges) *(avian & exotics are extra)
  • Bathing - Price is depending on the size of your pet and the type of bath. If your pet stays 3 nights or longer, their bath is ½ price.
  • Play Time -15 minute increments of private interaction with at least one of our trained team members for mental stimulation and exercise for your fur-baby!
  • Medication* administration, basic (2-4 medications) - Ask staff for daily charge
  • Medication* administration, extensive (5 or more medications) - Ask staff for daily charge

What We Require to Keep Your Pet Safe and Healthy

We do require your pet's vaccines be up-to-date for boarding or daycare. DAP (distemper, adenovirus and parvo virus), Rabies, Leptospirosis, Canine Influenza H3N2/H3N8 (Dog Flu) and Bordetella and Kennel Cough must be current for dogs, as well as having a negative fecal test for intestinal parasites and have current testing for heartworms. Cats must have CVRP FeLV and Rabies. Please speak with one of our trained team members if you have any questions or need clarification on your pet’s vaccination status. We cannot accept home administered vaccines. If your vaccines were administered at another veterinary hospital, please bring the vaccine certificates with you when you check in. Not all veterinary hospitals or boarding facilities require the same vaccines.
