What to Consider for Pet Boarding

Pros of Pet Boarding

Unless you hire a trusted friend or family member to care for your pet, pet boarding prevents a stranger from having access to your home while you’re away. Instead, your pet could be boarding with a reputable, trusted animal care facility. You have the comfort of knowing they’re being monitored by pet health professionals in a controlled environment.

Pet BoardingIn a veterinary facility or hospital, you’re also assured that your pet will have access to medical attention should it become necessary. At Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital, the caring staff will report any behavioral or physical concerns immediately. 

Cons of Pet Boarding

A primary concern associated with pet boarding is the stress it can cause your pet; if your pet suffers from anxiety, a pet sitter may be a better option. If you choose pet boarding, this stress can be alleviated by providing the boarding facility with one of your pal’s favorite toys, blankets, or a piece of clothing that carries your scent.

In a boarding environment, your pet can be exposed to illnesses from other animals. Boarding your pet in a veterinary facility or hospital offers the added security of knowing medical help is available around the clock. You should also be sure your pet is current on all vaccinations.

If you’re unsure about the best choice for your pet, the friendly, dedicated and experienced staff at Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about their pet boarding and pet health services.
