HEAD: Is Your Pet Prepared for Boarding?
If you’re traveling this holiday season and plan on boarding your pet, now’s the time to reserve their space and make sure your animal companion has everything he or she needs for a kennel stay. Here are some reminders to keep you from having any last-minute delays at drop-off:
Current vaccinations. See that your pet’s shots—including Bordetella—are up-to-date prior to arrival. If we’re not your regular vet, you’ll want to make sure you have a copy of their vaccination record.
Prescription diets and parasite preventatives. If your pet is on a special or prescription diet, check to make sure you have enough for the entire length of stay if we don’t provide it. You’ll also want to see that both dogs and cats are current on flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.
Smells like home. Bring favorite toys, bedding and blankets from home that will provide reassurance for your pet while you’re away.
Exercise your dog before drop-off. This will help relieve anxiety, and keep your dog from getting restless or soiling the kennel space right away.
Many of our clients go out of town around the holidays, so our boarding spaces fill up quickly! To reserve kennel space or to make an appointment for your pet to get updated vaccinations, call us at 999-999-9999.
