Before considering whether to board your pet please check their vaccination records to make sure they have been vaccinated within the past 12 months. If your pet is due for a booster vaccination make sure this is done well ahead of the boarding period. It is a good idea to contact the boarding facility to check their individual policy as to how soon before boarding a vaccination can be administered.
When choosing a boarding facility, there are a number of factors to consider, such as:
You will need to inform the boarding facility of any health problems your pet may have had or is prone to. If medication is to be administered you should let them know at the time of booking. Write down the dose, frequency and name of the medication.
If on long term medication, please ensure you bring along extra just in case. Please provide the boarding facility with our details in the event that your pet needs veterinary attention in your absence.
An ideal boarding facility for your pet has a relaxed, calm atmosphere, created by having fewer kennels/animals, a design that minimises stress and allows maintenance of a high standard of hygiene.
Please give us a call to discuss boarding and determine if your pet is up to date with the required vaccinations.
