Pet-friendly Apartments and more in Cary, NC

Looking for a new home is difficult enough, but looking for a new home as a pet owner only adds to the difficulty. Woodcreek Apartments is one of the most pet-friendly apartments in Cary, NC. We have a pet-friendly policy because we understand your pet is an important part of your family and you want you treat them as such. It’s for this reason that we’ve created a list of some helpful pet-related tips and tricks to help you and your Fido or feline become acquainted to the area.

Animal Hospitals

Your pet might appear to be just fine, but you can’t know for sure unless you visit a veterinarian. Cary Animal Hospital is a full-service animal hospital that specializes in providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care. They offer nutritional counseling, health certificates in case of travel, and an in-house lab and pharmacy. Mayfair Animal Hospital is also located in Cary and uses the latest techniques in veterinary care in providing wellness exams, laser therapy, dental care, and spay and neutering.

Daycare and Boarding

The idea of putting your pet in a kennel might make you cringe, but it’s possible to find a boarder that will give you peace of mind while you’re away from your pet. At Camp Bow Wow overnight guests’ days are full of camp activities, including lots of play in their spacious indoor and outdoor areas, as well as canine and human contact. Your pet will only go back to their room during meal time and bedtime. Camp Bow Wow even has web cams so you can keep an eye of your pet while you’re away. They also offer daycare services. Somewhat similarly, Dogtopia focuses on providing individual attention in an open-play environment. There are no kennels, and the staff encourages you to bring your dog’s bedding, food and other comforts of home to make sure they feel safe and secure.

Grooming

A clean pet is a happy pet, but it can be difficult to fit grooming into your schedule. So why not let the dog groomer come to you? Top Dog Pet Services is a dog groomer on wheels that offers the same amenities as a brick and mortar dog spa. Their services include baths and brushing, nail clipping, ear cleaning, air-fluff drying and facials. If you have time to visit a groomer, consider Pupsi. Their experienced staff is trained to customize grooming treatments based on your pet’s skin and hair types. They also offer a la carte services like nails trims, teeth brushing and ear cleaning.

Parks

There are several dog parks near Cary, NC, and in the surrounding areas. The Cary Dog Park is separated into two areas for large and small dogs and is surrounded by a five-foot high fence. There are water stations and pet cleanup areas, too. Just note that there is a registration fee in order to be able to use the park. Furry Feet Retreat of Cary is a dog boarder, but they also have an off-leash dog park that is open to non-guests. The two large, fenced-in, shaded outdoor play areas have water and cleanup stations. There is a fee to use this park, however, and your pet must be up to date with vaccinations.

House-hunting is stressful enough without having to worry about whether or not your potential home is as pet-friendly as you are. The perfect new home is going to be one that is accommodating to your pet and is located in an area that makes caring for your pet convenient.
