I was the dog mom that said I would never board my dog at a kennel – but then I moved to Florida, and knew not a soul to watch my “baby”. I expressed this to a new friend who immediately spoke to me about Panacea Pet Resort – her comment: “Go check them out.” I did just that and found my dog’s newest best friend(s)! My dog, Buddie, loves going to Panacea! He knows when I start the process to leave the house, he knows when we are turning into the access road, and he can’t wait to get out of the parked car to go play with his friends. And then…..there is the pick-up time……..he sits himself down and refuses to get into the car! Panacea Pet Resort has been the best decision I made on behalf of my best friend – Buddie! “Check them out!”
Panacea Pet Resort is great! From the moment you drive onto the property until you pick up your pet after their stay, they are top-notch. I am always greeted with a smile whether it’s from the owners or the employees. My dog is cared for as if he was their personal animal. They always try to accommodate when I have last minute scheduling requests. When picking up my dog they give me detailed information about the friends he has played with and how they got along. Panacea Pet Resort is my choice for when I need to board my dog.

I have been using the Panacea Pet Resort for the past fourteen years with two different dogs. My
current dog is a Greyhound, and I would not leave her anywhere else. This business if family owned
and operated, and the owners live on site. They treat each dog according to its individual needs and
temperament. I drive 25 miles each way to board my dog because peace of mind is worth it.

I give the facility 5 stars! I have been using Panacea Pet Resort for almost three years and they treat my boys like their own fur babies. I toured the facility before boarding my fur babies for the first time the kennels were clean, spacious and they had a nice play area. I loved the fact that I could have my Min Pin in an area specifically for small dogs. I cannot say enough about the owners and staff. I have used both their day camp and boarding facilities and my boys run back to the car with big smiles on their faces. They tell us all about their day and how much fun they had.

We have used Panacea Pet Resort for better than 10 years. Our two beloved fur babies that the resort has taken care of for many years, have since gone to doggie heaven. They loved being at the resort because they were well taken care of, and they loved the opportunity to play with other doggies. Since they were small, they were able to share the same cage area with the outside door to go out whenever they wanted. The resort is very clean and they love all types of fur babies. I now take my new little fur baby there in the petite section, and even though she is shy, they love her to pieces. I will continue taking my fur baby there when needed.

We love Panacea and wouldn’t consider boarding our dogs anywhere else. We have a small Chihuahua mix and a Golden Retriever and they both love it there --- they know the road on the way in and are jumping out of the car in to see the Panacea team before we even get a chance to say goodbye! The team at Panacea treats our dogs like their own and we appreciate the care they give to our “girls” when we are away. We can relax knowing that they are in good hands. Every experience we have had has been positive and they make it very easy to accommodate and work with our schedule since they are open 7 days a week. So thankful that we have a place that will take care of our dogs like we do!

I highly recommend Panacea Pet Resort. For over 4 years, I have been driving 40 minutes each way to take my 2 Labs to Panacea Pet Resort. Simply put, they are the best! Panacea is extremely trustworthy, loving and they treat every dog as if it were their own. They are a smaller kennel, the owners live onsite and they are very hands on. An added bonus is the free bath after a 4-day stay!
One word - Wonderful! I am so glad I found Panacea a few years ago. Even though I live in Land O' Lakes, it is worth the 25 minute drive. It is run by an animal loving family who listen to you. I have a very nervous rescue dog who is afraid of everything. She now jumps out of the car to go into Panacea. I was also impressed by the cleanliness of the whole resort. There is no smell of urine etc. The only problem I have is they are too popular! haha and sometimes I cannot get my dog in.

I have been taking my dog to Panacea Pet Resort for the past several years and would not consider taking her anywhere else. I have left her for ten to twelve day stays, and also for shorter visits including the occasional doggie day care. It is clear that my dog loves being there, as she can’t wait to “get inside” with the other dogs. The fact that my dog gets to get out, and (romp) socialize with other dogs several times a day, during her stay is really important to me. The owners/staff: Claire, Barbara and Roger truly care about the animals they keep; they run a tight ship. I frequently use the groomer as well, for bath and toenail clipping while she is there. I cannot say enough about Panacea Pet Resort!!
We were looking for a place to take our new “Angel”. Started searching the Internet and found Panacea Pet Resort. Our little “Angel” (90 pounds) was greeted by a very friendly staff, and Angel took to them immediately. So much so, that she didn't even bother to say good-bye when she went to her room. Since that first time, we have used Panacea Pet Resort, every time we have to leave town. Angel can't wait to get out of the car and share her kisses with Barbara and Roger. At most places, the animals are so excited to be picked up and on their way home. The story is a little different here, Angel walks out, looks at us, as if to say; “Oh, it's you!” She loves her new friends at the Resort, and as soon as she sees her bed being loaded in the car, she is uncontrollable, with whining and pacing till we get there. Thank you, Roger, Barbara and Claire for caring about your guests, and our very special 4 legged family member.

To Our Friends at Panacea Pet Resort-Dear Roger, Barbara, Claire and Liam: We just wanted to say thank you for the great care that you have given to our three "kids" on the two occasions they have stayed with you, once for a long weekend and also for our two and half week vacation this past year. We know they are a bit spoiled and that we are very particular about who takes care of our dogs, but I have to say that they actually looked better when we picked them up to take them home after their stay with you than they did when we dropped them off! In the past, when our three have been boarded elsewhere, they have been somewhat tentative when dropped off and sometimes came home with skin or tummy issues, but not so at Panacea! They have always come home happy, healthy (and clean)! As well, we feel that they are treated as a part of your family when they stay with you and receive excellent treatment with close attention paid to the instructions we leave with you for their individual care. We really can't say enough about how happy we are with Panacea and know that we can leave our pets there with full confidence and peace of mind-even when we are taking a long vacation. We also greatly appreciate your keeping in touch with us when we are away over an extended period so that we know exactly how our pets are faring and it helps us to miss them a bit less! We certainly will be back to you any time we need boarding services for our pets. Many thanks!
Panacea Pet Resort is an excellent choice for boarding your dog. It's a very clean and friendly place. I take my 4 year old Bernese Mountain Dog, Bodie, to Panacea when I travel. He loves going there and gets so excited when we turn into their driveway. He has a lot of fun playing with the other dogs, and comes home tired and smelling great - love the bath services! Most important to me, I don't worry about him because they are very knowledgeable about dog behaviors and health. It feels good to trust he is in a safe and nurturing place. Thank you to everyone there!
