There are several factors to consider when boarding a pet. First, the facility should be clean and well-maintained, and you should be allowed to fully inspect the premises. Experts recommend not leaving a pet at a kennel that doesn't welcome you or your questions. Next, you should make sure that your pet has had all vaccinations, and most boarders will want written verification of this. It is also a good idea to leave the name and number of your veterinarian with the border in case an emergency arises, but remember to tell your vet that you are doing so. Finally, you can ease your pet's homesickness by leaving a favorite toy or blanket with it while it boards. If your dog or cat is a picky eater, you may want to also supply its own food. If you hate the idea of boarding your pet, there are some pet-sitting services available. These allow the animal to stay home while a hired 'sitter' regularly walks and feeds it. For more information on boarding a pet or on pet-sitting options, consult a veterinarian in your area.
