Why Board Your Pet
Are you going on a vacation or have a busy couple of days coming up that you won’t be able to properly care for your pet? You may have thought about having a friend or family member care for your dog during this time, but this isn’t always possible or ideal. In these cases, pet boarding may be the best option for you!
When you have someone watch your pet, they may only stop over a few times a day to feed and check on your pet, which means there will be a lot of time they spend alone. This can give your pet anxiety and cause destructive behaviors. This is especially true for younger pets who have more energy and need more attention. When you board your pet, your pet is constantly being supervised, getting attention, and being cared for throughout the day.
Pet boarding is also an ideal option for pets with special medical needs. Does your pet need to take a certain medication every day or have a special diet? The professionals at a vet or pet boarding facility can make sure your pet gets the care they need. While your friend or family member may have good intentions, if they are not experienced in caring for a pet with special medical needs, they may become overwhelmed and not know how to care for your pet.
