Is Your Pet Ready for Boarding?

If you’re traveling this holiday season and plan on boarding your pet, now’s the time to make sure they’re up to date on vaccinations and that your animal companion has everything he or she needs for a kennel stay. Here are a few of reminders to make drop-off easier.

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 the kennel doesn’t provide it. You’ll also want to see that both dogs and cats are current on flea/tick and heartworm preventatives before you leave.

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.
