Why To Board Your Pet With A Veterinarian

Rare is the veterinary practice that doesn’t offer boarding as an ancillary service.

Our clinic, Animal General Hospital, offers boarding for dogs and cats.

You have several choices when it comes to care for your pets during travel.  Among them:

  • take them with you

 

  • have someone house-sit with your pet at home
  • have a family member or friend keep your pets at their home
  • board with a veterinarian
  • board at a non-veterinarian boarding facility

Among these many choices, why would you choose to have your pet’s doctor keep your pet for you? I like to compare it to a hotel with a doctor on staff.

In thirty years of practice I’ve seen many illnesses arise during pet boarding and have sometimes even had pets delivered to us from non-veterinarian boarding facilities for treatment of acute and chronic illnesses. Sometimes ailments are acute and mild, sometimes chronic and life-threatening.

In either case it brings great comfort to both pet and pet owner knowing that veterinary medical care is accessible in-house should a problem arise.

See you tomorrow, Dr. Randolph.
