Traveling can be difficult when you have a pet. Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, you will need someone to care for your pet while you are away. If you have a dog, he will need to go out several times per day. If you have a cat, the litter box will need to be cleaned often. Furthermore, your pet will need to be fed, receive his medication if he takes it, and he will need attention and affection.
You can ask a friend or family member to stop by to check on your pet and give him what he needs, but he will be alone for the majority of the day. The best way to make sure your pet is cared for is to bring him to a boarding facility. There are several benefits to boarding your pet at Peace Arch Veterinary Hospital in Surrey while you travel.
You want to trust the person you leave your pet with. You may trust a friend or family member, but there is no guarantee they will show up at your home on time to care for your pet. If they have to work late or if they get sick, your pet won't get the care he needs. When you bring your pet to a boarding facility, you can be sure he is being cared for 24 hours per day.
If you put your pet in a boarding facility while you travel, there will be other animals for your pet to play with. Socialization is essential for a healthy and happy pet. While you are away enjoying your trip, your pet will also be enjoying himself because he will have a chance to play with other animals.
If your pet gets sick or injured while you are away and you are having someone check in on him, it can be hours before he gets the treatment he needs. By the time your friend or family member gets to your home and discovers your pet is sick or injured, it could be too late. When you board your pet, there will always be someone there watching over him. If your pet gets sick or injured, there will be a veterinarian on-site to provide immediate medical care.
