The Den Herder Veterinary Hospital grooming department is operated by Deb Tabor. Deb joined the team in 2008 with the task of starting the grooming department and has done a phenomenal job. Deb has served the Cedar Valley pet community in various roles for 15 years. She has experience as a veterinary assistant, Humane Society director and medical technician, and groomer for 10 years. She has an expansive knowledge of many breeds of dogs as well as a keen eye for medical problems. Her ability to help owners detect potential health concerns during grooming appointments makes her an invaluable member of our healthcare team. Our grooming department would not exist if we did not have Deb behind the table. Grooming is available by appointment only.
We offer boarding to accommodate your pet when you are unable to. We have a variety of kennel spaces to house many pets. Dogs are leash walked in the grass twice daily and their kennels are hand washed each time as well. Cats are housed in a quiet area of the hospital as we know this helps reduce stress when they are away from their home. We strive to keep a clean and efficient boarding facility in order to reduce stress on your boarding pet. The kennel staff is trained to log all activity with your pet including feeding, bathroom activity, medication needed and administered, as well as any signs of illness. Complete logging of all your pet's activity aides the veterinarians in monitoring the health and well-being of your pet while they are in our care. All pets are examined by a veterinarian prior to leaving the hospital at the end of each boarding stay.
Security – Our premises are monitored 24 hours a day for fire, smoke and carbon monoxide. We have a 911 response access after hours for pet and staff safety.
