As a pet owner, one of the most difficult things to do is to leave pets behind while going away for the holidays. Unfortunately, for some, holiday pet boarding is a way to make sure their pets are safe with a veterinarian in Charlotte NC while they are away.

If you are planning a trip over the holidays and searching for an animal hospital in Charlotte that provides pet boarding during the holidays, it is important to make your reservations as early as possible. This can be a stressful process for many pet owners, so here are a few tips to make this a stress-free process and to help you choose the best pet boarding in Charlotte.

Pet Boarding in Charlotte with Trained Staff

It is essential to choose a place for holiday pet boarding that has a well-trained staff as well as an in-house vet in Charlotte. Staff training can vary significantly from one pet boarding facility to the next, so make sure to ask about staff experience. Even when choosing a boarding facility with an in-house veterinarian in Charlotte NC, it is important to make sure that the staff who will be caring for your pet has been trained in pet first aid.

Safety and Cleanliness

The last thing you want is to leave your pet in an animal hospital in Charlotte that is unsafe and/or unclean. Before agreeing to leave your pet, make sure to tour the facility you are considering. During your visit make sure to verify that all codes and regulations have been met. It is also important to carefully inspect all areas where your pet will spend their time, including kennels. Make sure all areas are clean; there are no odors and have nothing that may pose a safety hazard to your pet.

Licensed and Bonded Holiday Pet Boarding

Along with safety and cleanliness, the most important things to verify is that the facility is licensed and bonded for pet boarding. If your pet gets injured, injures another animal or causes property damage while in the boarding facility, making ensuring they are licensed and bonded will generally prevent you from being held liable for the injuries and damages caused to and/or from your pet.

Once you have done your homework and found the best place for holiday pet boarding, make sure to make reservations at least one month in advance. When the day arrives for you to take your pet to the boarding facility, remember to bring their favorite toy, a list of any special instructions for your pet and their food. Also, don’t forget to leave your contact numbers as well as a few local emergency numbers in case you can’t be reached.

I have used Dr Johnson ever since she opened this office and my pets love her to death. She is very caring and does not rush you and always answers your questions in layman's terms. She loves her work along with her associates.
