Boarding & Grooming

Standards of care at Dubai’s veterinary clinics are reasonably high. Prices do not vary dramatically, but the Deira Veterinary Clinic and Al Barsha Veterinary Clinic are a little cheaper than the rest. Dubai Municipality has a veterinary services department next to Mushrif Park that only vaccinates animals.

Luxury Pet Resorts
There are also several new seven-star pet resorts such as Urban Tails, with luxury suites, landscaped gardens, a pet gym with treadmills, a doggie bootcamp, an outdoor swimming pool and fountains. Paws Pet Planet is another posh pad for pooches. The Nad Al Shiba Veterinary Hospital also treats more exotic animals and birds. Kennels are generally of a good standard, although spaces are limited during peak times (summer and Christmas) – try Dubai Kennels & Cattery.

Home services and grooming
An alternative is to use an at-home pet-sitting service – someone will come into your house at least once a day to feed and exercise your pet for a reasonable fee (for a bit extra they might even water your plants). There are a number of firms that offer a variety of grooming treatments from the basic (shampooing, medicated baths and nail clipping) to the more indulgent, like fashion advice. Some, like Dubai Kennels and Cattery, do not have an in-house groomer but do appointments to get your pet pampered by approved third-party groomers, including collection and delivery.
