Are you heading away from home for the holidays or a long-deserved vacation? Not all destinations will welcome your family pet. Plus, many animals, particularly cats, become stressed during long car rides and in unfamiliar locations. Board your pet at Deer Ridge Animal Hospital in Jackson where you know they will be safe, secured, and away from the potential hazards that travel can present for your cat or dog.
Why Pet Boarding Makes Sense for Your Family Pet
There are a number of good reasons to choose pet boarding over leaving your pet at home and having them checked on by a family member or friend while you're away. When you opt for pet boarding, you have a full staff to look after your pet seven days a week. Plus, you have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that veterinary care is nearby should your pet become ill or have a medical emergency. Planning ahead is also important since we have a limited amount of boarding space, and we fill up quickly.
What You Need to Do to Get Your Pet Ready for Boarding
It's important to plan ahead when it comes to pet boarding. You'll need to make sure that your dog or cat is current on all of their vaccinations. In addition, be sure that your pet's flea and tick medication is current since being around other animals can unintentionally spread these pests. Lastly, purchase and portion out your pet's food. Although it is common for pet boarding facilities to offer nutritional food, you may not want to upset your pet's diet by changing the type of food they eat.
