Riverside Animal Clinic & Holistic Center of McHenry, Illinois is excited to announce the addition of dog day care services at the Healthy Pet Lifestyle Campus.

“The clinic has come a long way in our new facility and we have room to provide more enhancements in the lives of our patients and friends in the community,” said Dr. Jim Carlson, owner of Riverside Animal Clinic & Holistic Center.

The clinic is adding a swimming pool for dogs.  Group swims are available during day care hours in the morning. “Swimming is an excellent activity for our holistic patients and those who are older and have joint problems.  We will also offer guided swims through the clinic for therapeutic purposes,” said Dr. Carlson.  The pool will also be available for private and group swim sessions by appointment.

Carlson said, “Our goal with day care is to provide more than just a typical day care experience for dogs.  We hope to focus on training and conditioning during the day.  Our team will be working with pets on basic tricks as well as exercises like treadmill training and bosu.”  The day care is expected to open in the next few weeks or by July 1.  Supplies have been an issue in stocking the day care due to COVID supply chain issues.

Riverside Animal Clinic & Holistic Center offers a wide realm of custom holistic treatments for pets including acupuncture, herbal therapy, Tui Na, cold laser treatments and custom holistic testing.  We are located at 1112 Front Street, McHenry, IL 60050
