While dogs and cats are usually fine to spend a little time at home alone, leaving pets alone for an extended period can pose several risks. Pets can be prone to getting into things that could be toxic, becoming trapped, or even running out of food or water.
For younger animals, supervision is always recommended, and some pets can have separation anxiety and other issues with being left alone. To ensure the health and safety of your pet, boarding is always the better option when you need to leave for a longer period of time.
Thankfully, we offer pet boarding services right here at Green Cove Animal Hospital!
With experienced staff close by & a well-equipped facility, our boarding services are sure to keep your pet safe, healthy, and stimulated while you’re away. On top of this, boarding offers an extra bit of socialization that all pets need!
Pet Boarding Requirements
If your pet is staying with us, we do want to make sure they have a safe and healthy place that is free of illness. For this reason, we do require dogs and cats to be current on certain vaccinations.
- Dogs must be current on Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella vaccines.
- Cats must be current on Rabies and FVRCP vaccines.
In the event your pet becomes ill while it is staying in our pet boarding facilities in Green Cove, we will contact you to recommend diagnostics and treatment.
What to Bring from Home
We want your pet to feel right at home during its stay, so we always recommend that you bring a few items from home when you bring your pet to stay with us. Be sure to bring:
- Favorite toys or bedding
- Ample food and treats for the duration of the stay
In addition, we do need to have contact information on file for you in the event anything comes up with your pet and we need to get in touch with you.
Our Pet Daycare Program
Our pet daycare is a good option for younger animals who may not necessarily be safe to leave alone or lack the proper training. Daycare gives your pet ample socialization and access to some levels of basic training. For example, young puppies can work on house training and learning how to follow basic commands to avoid destructive behaviors.
