Welcome to Kennesaw Pet Center, your local animal hospital, boarding facility, doggie daycare, and grooming salon in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Kennesaw Pet Center is a locally family-owned and operated business, and has been since its inception. KPC has been in business in its current form for over 25 years. It has transitioned from a pet store in the 70s or 80s to a boarding facility to a full service one-stop shop for our clients, providing high-quality medicine, surgical care, grooming, boarding, and daycare.  Dr. Covington purchased the practice from Dr. Fowler in February 2022, and has steadily been working the renovate and innovate.

Our vision is to provide a place you and your pets love coming to to get the care they need – a place where you truly feel welcomed and cherished.  We specialize in low stress handling for dogs AND cats.  Check out our exam room videos to see some of the modifications we have made to achieve this goal. We strive to provide our patients and clients with exceptional, down-to-earth service. We value the trust of our clients and appreciate the opportunity to care for their pets.

*Additionally, we are always looking to add to our knowledge of the history of Kennesaw Pet Center.  We would love to hear your stories or see your pictures from before 2006!*
