4 Benefits of Holiday Pet Boarding at Our Veterinary Hospital

As you plan your family’s holiday travels this year, don’t forget to make plans for your pets, too! Whether you are visiting family for the holidays or welcoming out-of-town guests into your own home, your pets will benefit from the safety and security of our veterinary hospital boarding facility. Here are four reasons why pet boarding at a vet hospital is a smart choice:

#1: Familiar, safe and secure facilities. Your pet is already familiar with our veterinary hospital and our veterinarian is familiar with your pet. Choosing in a new or unfamiliar kennel can cause stress and anxiety for pets. With our veterinary hospital, you can rest assured that your pet is in safe, familiar hands.

#2: Daily exercise and attention. Thinking about leaving your pet home alone? Even if a neighbor checks on your pet daily, that’s no replacement for regular attention, long walks and companionship. Pets left home alone may become anxious, nervous and stressed. Some may even try to escape. Our vet team will give your pet plenty of attention and daily exercises, including outdoor supervised play for dogs.

#3: Life-saving care. In the event of a health emergency, our veterinary hospital already has access to your pet’s health records. Our veterinarian is familiar with your pet’s medical history and can provide immediate, life-saving care. If your pet is home alone, it could be hours before a neighbor stops by. In the event of an accidental poisoning or loss of consciousness, it could be too late.

#4: Less stressful than travel. No one wants to leave a beloved pet behind for holidays. However, long road trips or plane flights can be extremely stressful for pets. Your pet will be much happier staying in the familiar comfort of our vet hospital, rather than traveling to new and confusing places. Air travel also puts pets at unnecessary risk for health complications. Also, certain restrictions may apply for when you are traveling with your pet. Are you welcoming out of town guests? Consider boarding if your pet is anxious around new people.
