If you are planning a vacation or a work trip, you are going to need someone to take care of your pet. Rather than hiring someone to come in every day and check up on them, you should consider boarding them at KKM Veterinary Clinic in Franklin, OH. There are many benefits to pet boarding including:
At a boarding facility, your pet will get constant care. This is much better than someone stopping in for a few minutes each day to check on them. Pets need interaction and attention which is something that your pet can get from a boarding facility.
When you board your pet, you can be sure that they will get plenty of exercise. Reputable facilities will schedule ample time for the exercise that your pet needs. This is not something you can get if a friend or family member checks in on your pet.
A Chance to Socialize
When you board your pet, they will have a chance to socialize with the other pets at the facility. Socialization is important for your cat's or dog's happiness and wellbeing.
If your pet becomes sick or injured while you are away, they can get the care that he needs from a veterinarian at the boarding facility. If you have someone check in on your pet daily, they may not be able to recognize the signs that your pet needs medical care.
Food and Water
If you have someone check in on your pet, you cannot be sure that they have the food and water that they need. If they tip their bowl over and the water spills, they will be without water until their caretaker returns the next day. The same is true with his food. If they are at a boarding facility, you will have peace of mind that they have food and water at all times.
Less Separation Anxiety
Pets tend to suffer from separation anxiety when they are away from their owners. If you are worried about your pet suffering from separation anxiety while you are away, sending them to a boarding facility will help. At the facility, your pet will be so busy playing with the other pets and the staff members that they will barely even realize that you are gone.
Pet Sitters Aren't Always Reliable
If you have a friend or family member watch your pet, or if you hire a professional pet sitter, you have no way of knowing if they are doing their job. If your pet sitter gets sick, gets in an accident, or gets held up doing something else, it is your pet who will suffer. When you take your pet to a boarding facility, you will have peace of mind that there will always be someone there caring for your pet.
