When you are traveling, whether its for business or pleasure, the first thing that you need to do is set up care for your pet. Whether you have a cat or a dog, you need to know that they are happy, healthy, and safe while you are gone. You could hire someone to check in on your pet daily and make sure that your pet’s needs are met, but this isn't always the best option. Other than the few minutes that someone is there checking on your pet, they will be alone. This can be hard on an animal, especially if they miss you. It is best to board your pet with Radford Animal Hospital. Pet boarding has many benefits for your furry friend when you cannot take them along for the ride.
When your pet is in a boarding facility, they will get all of the attention they need. You can be sure that your pet will be fed on schedule, that they will get any medications that are taking on time, and if there is an emergency, your pet will get proper treatment. Knowing that there is someone there to care for your pet will give you the peace of mind that you need to enjoy your trip.
All pets need time to run and exercise. If you leave your pet at home, they won't get enough exercise, which can cause some pets to become destructive. When you bring your pet to a boarding facility, it will have a chance to exercise a few times a day. Being able to run and play will keep your pet happy as a welcome distraction while you’re gone.
If you leave your pet at home, there is a chance that they can escape. If this happens, your pet could get hit by a car, attacked by another animal, or taken to the pound. Worse still, you might not even know right away because you are out of town. When you bring your pet to a boarding facility, you can be sure that your pet will be safe and there is no chance of escape.
If you leave your pet at home, and they get sick or injured, it could be hours before anyone shows up to discover that your pet is in distress. When you bring your pet to a boarding facility, any injury or illness will be detected immediately. Also, there will be a veterinarian on site. If your pet requires immediate care and attention, they will be able to get it.
