In a perfect world, your pet could accompany wherever you need to go. There have been important strides toward this in both the travel and hospitality industries, but not all pets can tolerate routine disruptions. Fortunately, there are options available for every pet, their family, and financial situation. Choosing between a pet sitter (whether at their home or your own) and a formal pet boarding site isn’t always easy. With our go-to guide, you can make the best possible decision.

Don’t Leave Me

There are definitely pets out there that are seemingly indifferent to what’s happening in their human’s world, but most companion animals are deeply connected to their people. They know long before the arrival of the suitcase that something’s up, and when the packing begins, a full-blown anxiety attack can strike. 

Depending on your pet’s personality, needs, and preferences, it may be best to hire a pet sitter to come and stay at your home in your absence. This minimizes upheaval to your pet’s emotional state, and they get the support of their very own, comforting environment. If they are prone to stress and anxiety, this option is likely the best bet. 

Hiring a pet sitter ensures that your pet gets 100% of the attention in their own space. This control of the situation can provide meaningful peace of mind. Keep in mind that some pet sitters only accommodate pets to stay in their home, and it’s important to know the distinction before hiring them.

Clean, Safe, Comfortable

BEEVET Animal Hospital offers full-service pet boarding on-site. We pride ourselves on creating a clean, supportive home away from home for all of our boarding guests and work hard to ensure that every pet in our care is happy, healthy, safe, and comfortable. 

We understand the stress of separation, for both owners and pets alike! We take extra care every day to provide a five-star experience. Cats are separated from other species, dogs receive 4 walks every day, and we are fully staffed 7 days a week. Pets make new friends, enjoy new experiences, and are returned to you with a full report of all activities. 

Why Choose Pet Boarding?

Because we place your pet’s health and safety at the forefront of our pet boarding service, we require all guests to be free of internal and external parasites and are up to date with their vaccinations. 

Medical boarding is an excellent option for senior pets or those that require medication. If your pet is in our care when they experience an injury or illness, we can treat them right away. 

In addition, you can add onto your pet boarding experience with grooming appointments, teeth cleaning, and other veterinary services.

What It Comes Down To

There are obvious advantages to both pet sitters and pet boarding places. It really comes down to your pet’s needs, what you’re comfortable with, and what you are willing to pay for.
