A southern California veterinarian is about to introduce Rockville’s residents – human and nonhuman alike – to his brand of pet care.

Dr. Boyd’s Veterinary Resort, a facility that will combine boarding services and medical care, is holding a ribbon-cutting Saturday to celebrate its opening at 11503 Rockville Pike. The roughly 12,500-square-foot center will provide spa and grooming services, medical care, training, and daycare or longer-term accommodations.

The Montgomery County Planning Board on Thursday approved plans to establish the pet center in the single-story retail building, which is also occupied by a men’s clothing store. The veterinary resort can accommodate up to 200 pets and will take both dogs and cats, although the primary clientele will be canine, according to a staff report. The 24-hour veterinary hospital will claim about three-quarters of the building and will provide services from orthopedic surgery to injury care. The facility will also have a 3,200-square-foot outdoor exercise yard and dog run.

The business owner, Dr. John Boyd, runs two other such veterinary resorts in southern California, in Irvine and San Diego. On his website, Boyd wrote that he set out to found a “new brand of pet care facility,” where dogs enjoy all-day play and have access to veterinary care. John Wesson will serve as director of the Rockville center.

The ribbon cutting event will take place from noon to 2 p.m. Another boarding facility, Olde Towne Pet Resort, opened earlier this year in Rockville.
