Keeping Your Pet Healthy while They Board with Us
Your pet's health is a major priority for us while they're boarding. Our hospital is equipped to provide medical care to your pet during the day, and we have several requirements to increase their safety--and that of our other guests as well.
Medications and Medical Care
If your pet takes medications, they must be brought along with your pet in their original containers and contain specific instructions. When administering treatments and medications to our cat and dog boarding guests, we monitor everything very carefully to ensure compliance with their wellness plans. We monitor and log all eating, urination, and defecation activity daily to make sure each pet is doing well. Any problems that arise are treated promptly by trained medical personnel, and owners are duly notified about their pet’s treatment.
“Once again we have used the services of Island Hammock for veterinary with Dr. Martha Edwards, as well as daycare and overnight boarding. I am an owner/investor of multiple daycare and boarding facilities across the U.S. (Seattle to Boston) and I continue to be impressed with the attitude and professionalism of the staff and principals. My boys are always excited to go there (and equally excited to go home).
We are only here for the Winter (three months), but are always treated as regular clients. I cannot use sufficient superlatives too describe my feelings regarding their services and facilities.“
- Ralph M. with “Otter” and “Pinto”
"Nothing but the best. Always warm, friendly, and caring."
"Nobody’s as good as you all are!!”

"Dr. Fly is Indira’s Veterinarian and is by far the BEST Vet we have EVER had! She has been incredibly supportive ever since we moved back to the Upper Keys and I have no idea where Indira and I would be if it was not for her and the fantastic staff at Island Hammock Pet Hospital. Thank you!"
- Sarah S. & Indira
"We have lived all around the country and taken our dogs to many vet clinics, but this one has to be the best one we have ever been to. First of all, despite the media coverage that Florida doesn’t take COVID seriously, this clinic does an amazing job with COVID precautions. They come out to pick up/drop off your pets and handle everything vis phone- including the vet calling to explain everything. Super convenient and very safe. Dr. Pawluk should be a model case study for vet and medical students in excellent bedside manners. She patiently walks through the review of your pet’s medical visit, explaining everything in depth in a way a non-science/medical person can easily understand. I trust both my little one’s health in her and the staff’s hands."
