Boarding your pet while you travel for the holidays

Published: Updated:

Attention pet parents, with the holiday season here, boarding your pets while you head to your holiday destination may be what you opt for.

We talked to veterinarian, Whitney Whittford about the best tips before you hit the road.

“One of the important things is try to book ahead as best as you can, because a lot of things book up pretty quickly. Visit the area or the pet resort to take a tour and get familiar with the people make sure your comfortable with the policies and protocols. Also see what vaccinations they require prior to boarding,” Whittford said.

If you have a young, friendly pet, choose a place with a big turnout so your pet can play safely with other furry friends.

Older pets on medicine or a pet that’s anxious would probably have a more enjoyable stay at a vet clinic.

If your pet does need anxiety medication, make sure you try it out prior to boarding, so you know your pet reacts well to the medicine.
