Taking the Hospital out of Pet Care

Dr. John Boyd on Pet Life Radio ........

..Dr. John Boyd .............................


Quick…What comes to mind when you think of a hospital…a lot of sick people, strange smells, those indecipherable overhead pages…code what, Dr. Who, go where??? and staff that seem to be ignoring you.  Think veterinary hospital…now what do you think of?...barking and mewing pets, anxious looking pet owners, a plethora of unpleasant scents and staff who look distracted by myriad details?

There is a new model of pet hospital with an aim of treating the whole pet…mind and body.  It strives to have the pet parent feel as relaxed and pampered as their furry charges.  Southern California recently had the opportunity to enjoy the opening of a second unique breed of pet care center.  My guest is Dr. John Boyd, the CEO/Founder of Dr. Boyd’s Pet Resort and Veterinary Centers.
