Pet Boarding

Caring for your best friend since 1990, our TLC programs can be designed for your individual pet's needs. We accommodate dogs and cats of all sizes and feed high quality Science Diet. Our animal care technicians monitor your pets behavior and appetite.   They report any concerns immediately. Our canine guests have outside play time three times a day.   At Magnolia by the Gulf Animal Clinic, we pet, play, laugh and cry together treating all pets like our own because we understand they are part of your family.

Any special needs or requests, ie medications, special diets can be met while your pet is in our care.

Senior Care

Dogs and cats age more rapidly than humans so it is very important to manage their health care in a preventative fashion through more frequent check ups and screening tests. With this information our Doctors can detect the onset of diseases at an earlier stage. Sadly, when you start to think your pet may have a problem, your best friend is already seriously ill.

Pets can have severe kidney disease and not show any symptoms until over 60-70% of kidney function is lost. If caught in the early stages changes can be made that dramatically increase your pets life and slow the progression of the disease.

Early detection means your pet has a better quality of life in his or her senior years! Our staff is ready to assist you in any questions you may have regarding the aging pet!

Nutritional counseling

Some pets require special food, and all pets benefit from a balanced diet. Our trained staff is available to help you choose the right diet for your pet. We want to keep them happy, healthy and active and a good diet is the best start to a long life.

From food allergies, diabetes, obesity, and many other health problems we can help develop the best nutritional program for your pet's need.

Dental Care

Dental disease is one of the primary causes of heart problems and congestive heart failure in our pets. We have cuttling edge high speed dental equipment that results in much quicker dental procedures. Complete ultrasonic scaling, polishing fluoride treatments are among the many procedures we offer.

A full array of preventative dental products like CET dentifrice rawhide treats, Oral rinses, toothpaste, Greenies, and dental diets are available to fit your pet's specific needs.


This is a new age way of identifying your pet and gives your pet the best way of coming home to you. Microchipping is a simple procedure similar to a routine shot and only takes a few seconds.
