At Valley Veterinary Hospital of Helena, we have provided residents of Helena, MT, with pet boarding services for many years. Read on to the answers to several questions we often receive about pet boarding.
What is Pet Boarding?
Pet boarding is a service that is provided to pet owners which allows them to leave their pets in the care of a facility while they are away. The amount of time that a pet is left may be a day, a week, or even longer. Pets are cared for during this time. This includes water, food, and a safe place to stay and play. Some boarding locations also bathe your pet before you get them back.
Why Would I Need to Board My Pet?
Pet boarding is ideal when you are going on vacation or have to be away from home. It doesn’t matter if you are going to be away for a few days or an extended period. This is a perfect situation when you have pets that require supervision or special care. This is also a great idea when you have older pets that may need extra special attention.
What Should I Bring When I Drop Off My Pet?
When you drop off your pet for boarding, you should bring the food you feed them, all medications they are taking, and special instructions for their care. You should also bring a copy of your pet’s vaccination records. Consider bringing their favorite blanket or toy to help them feel comfortable while being boarded.
What Should I Look For in a Pet Boarding Facility?
When looking for a facility to board your pet, you want a place that is safe, clean, and comfortable. You want to read reviews and find out about the reputation of the facility. You want the staff to be experienced and knowledgeable when caring for your pets. In addition, you want the boarding facility to have permits and licenses.
