Facility & Amenities

TLC Pet Nursing Hotel has a beautifully designed spa style environment with special bedding, soothing music, and decorative baffling that reduces sound. Each suite is enriched with amenities that provide mental stimulation and comfort specialized to your pet’s species.

The canine suites feature tempered, tinted glass to prevent guests from seeing each other. Your friend will have plenty of space to move around and stay comfortable.

The feline suites are continually infused with special pheromones that help cats keep calm and relaxed. Your friend will be able to look out the window on one side and gaze at our faux fish display on the other.

The canine and feline suites are located in separate areas of the building to reduce stress.

Your pet is always monitored visually. A veterinary technician is always nearby and additional monitoring happens through our in-suite camera systems.

Pet Reiki -




What is Reiki?

Reiki is a hands-on healing method that originated in Japan. The practitioner channels healing energy through her hands to the animal through a light touch either directly on the body or from a distance.

The word Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) is a Japanese composite word usually translated as “universal life energy”. It is based on the idea that all living beings have life energy flowing through them.

Reiki is a safe complement to conventional Western medicine, Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, homeopathy and all other forms of healing.

Animals, especially cats, are naturally receptive to the Reiki energy and tend to gravitate towards it readily (some people even say cats invented Reiki). Some pets may initially prefer to experience the energy from a slight distance, rather than having the practitioner’s hands directly on them.

Reiki sessions for pets typically last 15-30 minutes. Some health issues can be resolved in two or three sessions, others may take ongoing sessions on a recurring basis. 

Reiki is great for pets:

  • Enhances overall well-being.
  • Strengthens the immune system for cancer therapies.
  • Accelerates healing following surgery or illness.

  • Can help with behavior issues by promoting relaxation and stress reduction.
  • Provides comfort and relieves pain, anxiety and fear for terminally ill animals.
