Great Ideas for Pet Care While You are Away

When you are planning a family outing, you may want to know what the best option is for taking care of your pet. Some people choose to take their pets along, but this is not always possible. When you are flying, it is much harder to take your pets because you have to pay extra to have them go along on the flight. Some people can manage this extra cost, but others look for other options for leaving them behind. Whatever you do, do not leave them at home unattended the entire time you are away. There are some great options that you can choose to ensure that they have great care.

Boarding and Pet Kennels

One of the most popular options is boarding. You can check with your local vet clinic to see if they offer boarding. The good news is that for pets to stay in a kennel, they must be up to date on all of their shots. This means that your pet will not be exposed to other pets that have not been vaccinated. Just make sure that you take a look at the facility before you board them. Also check around to make sure that you are getting an affordable nightly rate.

Some kennels will offer additional options such as CCTV sets that will constantly record your pet so that you can see what they are doing while you are gone. This is commonly found in upscale pet hotels. This usually comes at an additional fee, but some pet owners like the convenience of always knowing how their pet is doing while they are away.

Private Pet Sitters

If you are not comfortable with leaving your pet in a kennel, then you may want to consider private pet sitting options. There are a couple of different options for you to choose from. You may just want to have someone stop by a couple times a day and look after your pet. Let them take them outside to run around and feed them. This may be great for older pets, but if you have a young pet then this may not be enough.

Another option that you have is to have someone actually stay in your home and care for your pet. They can also do other things such as take care of the plants and water the grass. They can bring your mail in each day, and make it look like someone is always at home. This is a great option for those that have quite a few pets that will require some consistent attention.

There are also some pet sitters that will keep pets from their home. This may be a great option for you, but you need to make sure that you ask them some vital questions. Getting references and taking a look at their home is also a must. If they have reputable references, then chances are you will have a great experience with them.
