It's that time of the year when you finally get away for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Your scheduled family vacation is just around the corner. Unfortunately, traveling during the summer isn't always as relaxing for your dog or cat as it is for your family. That's why our veterinarian typically recommends boarding pets while on vacation. Here are some of the reasons why we at Magnolia Animal Hospital recommend boarding your pet while you're on vacation.

Safe and Secure

Leaving your pet alone in a hotel room or an unfamiliar vacation rental home while you're out enjoying various activities may not be the best thing for a cat or dog. However, when you leave your pet in our boarding facility, you can depend on our professional staff to be there for your pet and keep them safe.

Regular Food Schedule

While in the kennel, we will continue your pet's regular feeding schedule, so you won't have to worry about him or her missing out on their food if left in someone else's care. This can be especially important if your pet has special feeding requirements. You can let our team know about any special requirements, ensuring your pet is properly set up with his or her daily needs.

Providing the Time and Care Your Pet Needs

Cats and dogs love attention, and yours will miss being showered with attention while alone in a hotel or at home. In addition, being in an unfamiliar place may cause your pet to become anxious and lonely. While in a boarding kennel, your pet will have the opportunity to socialize with other pets as well as get the attention they want from the staff members.
