What's Best for Your Pet?
Planning the perfect getaway can be difficult when some of family members aren’t human. There can be a lot of stress when it comes to finding proper care for your beloved pet in your absence. Deciding what style of care to choose will ultimately be based on three factors: type of animal, length of your vacation, and budget.
What are your best options for pet sitting? Are there sitters available for all types of pets? This is an important decision, and one that should leave you with peace of mind so that you can actually enjoy your vacation. There are a number of pet sitting options you can choose from for your pets.
Boarding Kennels and Catteries
Boarding kennels and catteries are common options that come to mind. These facilities are literally made to house your pet while you are away. Some, certainly, are more lavish than others. There are some that even boast resort-style service with luxury suites.
As you can imagine, such grandeur means starting with a budget that is already quite flexible. However, not all facilities will be so immaculate. You should always be sure to research the kennel beforehand to ensure the level of care you expect for your pet.
Another consideration to keep in mind when choosing a kennel, or cattery, is the amount of exposure your pet will be having with other pets. This makes prior veterinary care essential, so make sure all of the proper vaccinations have been administered to your pet.
Because there are a greater amount of pets in a kennel, there is a greater chance of your beloved furry friend becoming ill during their stay. Most facilities will have protocols in place in case of medical emergencies.
