The old Beach Club Tanning Salon on Beacon Street is going to the dogs.

And the cats.

Veterinary Wellness Centers has applied to convert the 1800 square foot space for routine checkups, vaccinations and minor injury care.

From the application:

“Veterinary Wellness Centers’ goal is to simplify veterinary medicine. The majority of veterinary  outpatient visits require relatively low overhead and only a basic facility to achieve their objective. Following our model, we will make delivering veterinary care cost effective, efficient and pleasant for pet owners who want to give their pets the care and comfort they deserve.”

The clinic will have dog and cat exam rooms, radiology, a lab and pharmacy and a ward for animals.

The project has to get a conditional use permit from the City of Boise, and that process is underway.
