Keeping Fido happy and healthy is important to pup-parents, and you won’t need to travel far for excellent veterinarian care. There is one vet clinic right in Mount Orab where your pooch can go for routine appointments or emergency care.
If Fido loves chasing around a ball or just rolling in the grass, take him over to the Ogden Softball Park when the games are not in session. You can walk around the park or let your pooch play a game of fetch in the open fields.
Another option for some outdoor activity is the Mount Orab Park on College Avenue. You can stroll along the well-maintained path and get some exercise or sit on a bench in the shade and enjoy the fresh air while chatting with other pup-parents.
It’s also more fun to go out for dinner when you can bring along your furry family members. If you are looking for some hometown American cuisine, head over to the Country Inn where you will enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at one of the outdoor tables.
Fido will have a furtastic time exploring the Orshein Farm & Home Store where he can pick out his own toy and you can buy nutritious dog food.
