Dr. Boyd’s Veterinary Resorts

Established in 2011, Dr. Boyd’s Veterinary Resorts led the movement of the all-inclusive pet care facility. Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, these large 12,000 – 25,000 square foot, state of art facilities, include full service veterinary hospitals, boarding, daycare, dog training, bathing, and grooming for dogs and cats. Each Resort has been designed with the comfort of the animals in mind, such as; rubber floors, high ceilings, large areas to play, and the safety of individual bedrooms for resting, sleeping and eating. Two of these Resorts (Irvine and San Diego) were sold in 2017 & 2018, realizing millions in profit.

We are currently in the build process of Mountain View Animal Hospital in Big Bear Lake, CA. This facility will also include daycare, boarding, bathing and grooming. Scheduled opening of this facility will be the spring/summer of 2022.

We are currently in the process of starting a new veterinary hospital in Tahoe City, CA. This facility will also include daycare, boarding, and bathing. Scheduled opening of this facility will be the fall/winter of 2021.

Volunteer Projects

Big Dog Ventures is very active in giving back to the animal community, here in the United States and in Mexico. Over the past decade, Big Dog Ventures has organized several trips to help animal hospitals abroad by bringing medical supplies, medications, books, internet and even veterinarians to provide much needed continuing education and surgical services. A Sea Turtle rescue program was put in place in Mainland Mexico that protects the sea turtle eggs from poachers who believe that they are aphrodesiacs. Please contact us if you would like to participate in one of our trips, have knowledge of an area that needs help, or would like to donate to help animal hospitals and animals in need around the world. We are more than happy to help, and grateful for your participation.
