We wanted to let everyone know, that our experience with Gentle care was excellent! We boarded three of our dogs with them as we left for vacation. There care was second to none, and they kept my son informed as he was worried about his English Bulldog as sometimes it get scared in new places. He would contact them inquiring how she was doing and they would also call and let him know how she was progressing. They made him feel very confident she was in good care. If you are looking for a place to board your animals, I highly recommend Gentle Care Animal Hospital in Nixa, Mo. And a special thanks goes out to Melissa, she was great!!!
