Thank you so much for taking care of Rudy and draining his belly when he was sick. I don't know what I would do without you, you have been so good to Rude for his whole life and I can't thank you enough.

I have both my dogs at Noah's Ark Veterinary and they both love it. They are both so exhausted but happy. I would definitely recommend boarding and daycare here.

I wanted to thank you and especially the artist for the drawing of my beloved Rocky. It is such a wonderful of him. I have it in my family room where he loved to sleep and it brings such comfort to see him every day. To know how much everyone cared about Rocky lifts my spirit. Thank you for taking such good care of Rocky and keeping him and me in your thoughts.

I know my Zoey was very ill and the staff there did everything that you could possibly do to save her. I know that she is no longer suffering but I miss my baby so much!!! The doctor was right on top of things, trying everything in your power to save Zoey's young life. You explained the seriousness of her illness to me and you did it with such compassion. I just really appreciate you so so much. Thank you for your love and dedication! Please keep doing the magnificent job that you are doing for your family members (our pets).

I wanted to send a quick note to commend and thank Becky. She groomed my Morkie, Lilly White, a couple of weeks ago. I had taken Lilly to her (now former) vet when she was limping, lethargic, etc. They did a Lyme test and I paid additional for a full workup on her blood. They told me she had a fever and a bad knee and would probably eventually need surgery. I gave her the antibiotics and snti-inflammatory medicine for a week. Right after the medication was finished I took her to Becky for grooming. I didn't think she was doing much better. Becky called and said she was worried about Lilly. Her back legs were hot and she had sores in her ears. Her concern got me to get her into a new vet. When I got there, she had a fever of 105. Within a minute or two of examining her the vet said with 99% certainty Lilly had Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. She was textbook from the sores in the ears, fever, hot and swollen legs. The test did come back positive. There was no issue with a bad knee. After spending $350 at the original vet, money was tight. However, thanks to Becky taking the time to call me, it spurred me to move quicker than I probably would have. Within hours of getting on her new medication, she was amazingly better. Kudos and thanks to Becky!! :)

Thank you so much for taking such good care of Cookie, Honey, and Tinkerbell! I know it was overkill checking out your palce 3x's before I left the girls but having never boarded any of my fuzzy babys in my life, I had to be sure they would be ok. Becuase of your understanding I was able to fly to Georgia for my son's wedding and never felt the need to call and check on my "kids". When I came in from the airport 2 min. before closing (they "misplaced" my luggage). You still helped me get the kids checked out and in the car. They looked good and seemed very well taken care of. I cannot thank you enough for taking such good care of my babies for me. Thank you again!

I wanted to thank all of you so much for taking such good care of our Isabella. We were a litlle nervous when we realized that we would need to board her while we were visiting our daughter who is stationed at Fort Meade. We were so impressed that everyone knew her by name when we came to pick her up on Sunday afternoon and were even more relieved to find out she had done well even though she gets very nervous around people she doesn't know. I know that this is a reflection of how good you all treated her while she was there! If we are ever back in the area we will certainly use you again! Thanks so much.

We brought our Old English sheepdog in this morning for grooming and she had the best experience! Jilly is so fluffy and happy. She loves to be groomed because everybody wants to touch her and love her up. Jilly has been to other places but she far prefers Noah's Ark. So much so that they are now our vet too. Thank you!

As the owner of 2 dogs - 1 big and 1 small - I have found Noah's Ark to be a good one stop shop. The vets have been particularly helpful in working with my Rottie as well as my older dog. The prices are reasonable. The boarding has worked out very well. And I also use the grooming services for my Cockapoo. Everyone has been friendly and accommodating. I have no hesitation in referring my friends to this establishment.

I'll be honest, I never took a tour of their facilities but when I pick my dog up after a trip, he usually doesn't want to go home (not sure if this makes me a bad owner or they're just that good, I'll go with the latter). The prices are reasonable, but they seem to be expanding so that may change. They'll accommodate your pet's special needs (a toy, special treats...etc.) for a little fee...I'd recommend them.

We bring our fluffy Himalayan here for a haircut every few months to make her fur more manageable. For an idea, she goes from being roughly 12 pounds to just over 6. Yeah, that furry! They always do a great job shaving her and are willing to take any special requests we have. They are slightly less expensive than Pet smart and do a much better job. The place looks very clean and the staff is friendly.

Today was my first time visiting Noah's Ark vet. Office was very clean and everyone was very helpful. I have my son and my cat crate and they came out and carried the crate in for me. The exam room was bright and had lots of space. The treated my boys so gently and made them feel at ease (well at ease as much as they can). Great place for sure.

Let me start off by saying that I am usually happy with the staff, the facilities, and the safety of my golden when I take her there. When I bring her home, she usually has a day or two of ??bad habits,? but they are nothing serious and I am able to correct them with no problem. The MAJOR issue that I have is the fact that the last time I took her there, I measured out her food exactly, and gave very simple and clear feeding instructions both in writing and verbally. When I picked her up, at least half of the food was still left in the bag. I asked the staff about this and they had no response as to why. To me, this means one of two things: 1.) She was not fed enough. 2.) She was fed other food besides her own. Both of these reasons are unacceptable. They have changed my dog??s eating habits.

This was about a month ago. Since then, my dog will not eat her morning meal. She just stares at it. She has never had an issue with eating before, and she used to gobble up her food immediately at both of her daily feedings. In addition, the treats that I have been giving her for the past year and a half are no longer appetizing to her and she just spits them out. I do not know what to do.

I have noticed that the past couple times that I have been there, the staff is running around like crazy and the amount of personal attention I get is minimal. Normally, a busy place would make me assume that the service was good, but in this case, I feel that they are too busy to listen to the pet owners. I am not asking that my dog be treated any different than any other pet, but if I give feeding instructions, I expect them to be followed. I will not be taking my dog to Noah's Ark ever again.

Wow, I don't know where all this misinformation and garbage comes from. I've been a very happy customer of Noah's for over 6 years now, and I'm very familiar with the facility, and have had discussions with ex-employees who have never indicated such "neglect" occurred.

Not sure how "hangings" occur when the dogs do not wear collars and/or leashes in the daycare areas or while boarding. As for daycare dogs getting free, the entrances and exits are all interior to a tremendously high fence. I know some dogs can and do climb, but my friend's dog (a climber) was identified and spent his daycare indoors after a couple of escape attempts. Yeah, it's close to a busy road, and if your dog does break free - from you or someone else - there's a risk of a dog being hit. I've never seen any incident of the type. And yeah, the dogs sometimes sit around and watch the cars go by. They're dogs. They don't just frolic and play for hours on end like your kids might - dogs spend a huge amount of time resting and dozing, like when they're at home with you.

My dog has never come back from Noah's with fleas or kennel cough, and I take her to daycare 5 days a week and she boards there at least 5 to 10 days a year. I find most of the staff helpful, knowledgeable and personable. Yes, occasionally there are one or two that don't "get" customer service, but they tend not to stay long.

I also am very pleased with the veterinary services, and my pup has gotten nothing but the best care from Dr. Hamilton and Dr. Holstein.

Are they perfect? Occasionally some small mistake will be made (forgot to clip nails when requested; things like that). Has my dog come home with a bite? Just once - but don't forget, dogs "play" with teeth & paws. These things happen.

Go visit. Tour the facility. Talk to the regulars. Then make your decision.

WOW! I just read some of these reviews and I do not agree. First off, anytime you take a pet out of their ??environment, things are going to sometimes happen. They are in fact animals, not humans. Unfortunately many people treat their pets as humans. I have personally seen 2 family dogs that live together day by day, suddenly turn on one another for no apparent reason. They were staying at another family member??s home when they suddenly went after each other. If your pet is not used to being boarded or boarding for long periods of time, then you have to be aware that things happen. They are unfortunately unpredictable. I know that you can tour the facility and call anytime.
Secondly, fleas. Fleas are everywhere. My vet told me that since we did not have a cold winter, fleas and ticks are going to be worse. Also, she told me that the more you wash or get groomed; the flea and tick preventative wears off. WOW light bulb. My pet gets wet a lot. So they told me to apply the preventive sooner or change to the next brand up. Did you bother to ask your vet these questions? As far as the coccidiosis goes. Did your vet explain to you the following? General information on coccidiosis in canines: 1. Coccidiosis is an opportunistic disease ?? it generally affects stressed animals.
2. Kennel conditions provide ideal circumstances for an outbreak. Stress! Again, education instead of judgment. Not that hard to do.
Next, did you ask the groomers at Noah??s to do what??s call a straight thru? Most groomers do that upon request. Again, education before judgment. And lastly, about pricing, wow! Noah??s vet??s uses laser and not a blade. Ouch! Do you know the benefits of the laser or laser therapy? Noah??s offers a whole bunch more than just boarding and grooming. They have the top of the line surgical equipment. When I saw how much pain my 1st cat was in after her surgery with a blade and then I asked about my 2nd cat??s surgery with a laser, NO CONTEST! I felt horrible because I went someplace CHEAPER but put a loved one thru horrible pain to save a stupid buck. Boy who was the horrible caregiver now. I did my research and my 2nd cat bounced right back and healed in half the time without pain medication. EDUCATION! All it takes is a phone call or a stop by. If you love your pets, do the research.
All I am saying about writing a review about any place is get your facts first. Exhaust all other avenues. Speak directly to the facility where you had the bad experience. 9 times out of 10 they will be accommodating. Get past the heat of the moment. I hope this helps to educate future pet owners. I can honestly say that I will continue to take my pets to Noah??s. Keep up the good work!

We always feel terrible when we have not been able to satisfy every customer. We sincerely apologize to all who have had a bad experience and want to remind all who visit this site that a bad experience is more motivation to write than a good experience. You may even notice that much of the statements made are that previous visits went well until the particular incident that caused dissatisfaction. We encourage everyone to give us a call with any comments, concerns, and/or suggestions. We truly want to be as fair as possible and want the opportunity to address your concerns. Canine cough (nicknamed "kennel cough") is the most misunderstood canine virus and we encourage everyone to ask the local veterinarian for information about the virus or go to the pet care services association website or the abka website to obtain non-bias information. Finally, we have been informed that a competitor has placed a few of these negative reviews so we hope that all readers will try to sort out the outrageous from the plausible.

I always left my lab at Noah's Ark with no problem. However, having recently adopting two dogs and leaving them for Christmas I will never board there again. Both dogs reeked of urine and excrement even though I paid for them to be bathed. The fur on their stomaches was matted and I have serious doubts that they were kenneled in the large indoor-outdoor run I paid for. My female dog was so traumatized that she was afraid to be petted for weeks.

My daughter's friend said her dog so traumatized that the owner had to literally go into the cage to get it out.

BTW, the windowless basement, where obedience traing is held (another nightmare!) is cram packed with cages stacked on top of each other. Imagine your dog staying there!

It's difficult to believe some of the bad comments I've read. I have been bringing my dog there for daycare for over 4 years. I have never met a more sincere and great bunch of people. I highly recommend them for anyone who is looking into doggie daycare.

This place is really great. They specialize in boarding, grooming, doggie daycare, training, and do-it-yourself dog wash. Dogs always have a wonderful time here. They have a bunch of dog runs, and they are always really neat. They also have outdoor yards which are always supervised.
