Pet Boarding FAQs from our Mesquite, TX Veterinarian

When vacations, business trips or other travel comes up and you are unable to bring your pets with you, boarding offers a great solution for making sure they are taken care of. Pet boarding at a veterinary facility provides important benefits while also ensuring that your pets stay safe while you are gone. At SylvaniaVET, we offer quality boarding for pets in the Sylvania, OH area. Find out more about pet boarding, including what you should ask the boarder.

What Are the Requirements for Boarding?

Pets typically need to be up-to-date on certain vaccines, such as rabies, distemper, and Bordetella in order to stay at a pet boarding facility. This helps lower the risk of infectious diseases among pets while they board. 

How Often Are Dogs Walked?

At SylvaniaVET, we bring dogs outside in a fenced-in yard for walks and playtime a minimum of five times a day. This ensures that they get exercise while boarding, along with having plenty of opportunities to relieve themselves. 

Where Do Pets Stay?

You should ask for a tour of the facility in order to see what condition it is in. Some places put pets in small cages, while others provide more spacious accommodations for added comfort. 

What Happens If There Is a Medical Emergency?

Boarding your pets at a veterinary facility means that they will be promptly cared for by trained veterinary professionals if they have an emergency. This can provide you with peace of mind that your pets will be cared for if they get sick or injured.

Can You Accommodate Special Diets and Medications?

At SylvaniaVET, we do accommodate special diets and medications for pets, and we do this at no extra charge. Just let us know what your pets need, and we will make sure they get it.
