For Those Special Needs Dog & Cat Boarding

Special Pet Care & Special Grooming Services:  We provide a secure and special area just for those pets with "special needs".  For those pets who are not as comfortable within our normal pet care environment and accommodations.

We provide a comfortable, secure and special residential area just for those pets with "special needs". The staff at Bokhara is well experienced and trained to handle most special needs pets.  Please call us to discuss your those extra needs.


Please feel free to discuss any special requirements with us when you make your reservation and we will do everything in our power to make sure your pet is taken care of and provided for per your instructions. Our local vet is only less than 1-1/2 miles away and they provide on-call  24/7 emergency services.
