Southern California veterinarian John Boyd, DVM, has opened his second all-in-one pet resort, offering boarding, day care, dog training and grooming services in addition to veterinary care.

The first Dr. Boyd’s Pet Resort & Veterinary Center launched in 2011 a mile away from the San Diego airport, a convenient location for pet owners to drop off their cat or dog before they flew out on vacation or business.

The second location opened Monday in Irvine, Calif., just eight miles from the Orange County airport. The new facility is twice the size of the original—25,000 square feet versus 12,000.

The Irvine business brings “our first-of-its-kind concept to a community that loves pets,” Dr. Boyd said.

The website WalletHub.com ranks Irvine as the fourth-best city in the United States for pet lovers.

Heading up the operation as CEO is Boyd, a 1986 graduate of the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine. Assisting him in Irvine are chief medical officer Christina Branshaw, DVM, and veterinarians Amy Krier, DVM, and Mike Mansfield, DVM.

Staffed 24 hours a day, both locations charge daily boarding fees of $49 for dogs and $29 for cats. Day care is $29 and $20, respectively.

Cats and dogs roam in separate play areas, and at night they stay in private rooms rather than cages.

Veterinary services are available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
