Preparing for Your Pet's Boarding
We understand that boarding your beloved pet can be an emotional experience. You entrust their well-being to us, and we take that responsibility seriously. At Westwood Pet Care, we know that your pet deserves the very best care, especially when you can’t be there to provide it yourself.
We have a full boarding kennel with large runs and kennel spaces. Comfort of your pet while you are away is our priority and pets are provided private playtime in our fenced yard (canines only) as well as beds and blankets as allowed in their kennel spaces. We have a private “cat ward” with large kennels to provide a comfortable and stress free environment for your cat while you are away. Our trained kennel technicians monitor and interact with your pet throughout the day and are skilled at medicating pets as needed. For the safety of all boarding animals, we do require all pets to be up to date on their core vaccinations 2 weeks prior to their reservation and have a negative fecal within the past year. Any pets found with fleas will be treated appropriately.
Preparing Your Pet for a Caring Boarding Experience
Before your pet’s stay with us, start by scheduling a routine pet exam with us to make sure your furry friend is up to date on vaccinations and if they have any underlying health conditions, that there is a plan to address them.
Selecting the right boarding facility is similar to choosing a second home for your pet. Ensuring their safety and comfort is paramount. Here are some essential questions to ask:
- How many pets will be at the facility? Understanding the environment your pet will be in is essential for their well-being.
- What’s the proximity of pets to each other? Knowing their living conditions helps you gauge their comfort level.
- What level of supervision is provided? Ensuring adequate care and attention is crucial.
- Seek feedback from others: Reading reviews and speaking with fellow pet owners who have used the facility can offer valuable insights.
- Visit the facility: A personal tour or at least a thorough check of the premises and a conversation with the staff can help you assess the environment that your pet will be spending their time away from you.
