The Benefits of Pet Boarding
You want what’s best for your pet, but sometimes your career or vacation travel takes you away for a while. Pet boarding is a service offered by veterinarians, allowing owners to drop their pets off for a set amount of time. Here at Skeet Club Veterinary Hospital and Total Care Veterinary Hospital, located in High Point, NC offers pet boarding services to their customers. Dr. Harvey Goho, Dr. Lydia Goho, and Dr. Shelly Figgatt are some of the top veterinarians in High Point, NC.
1. Daily Walks- One of the best benefits offered by pet boarding companies is a pet walking service. Every animal needs a physical outlet to expend extra energy and maintain health and fitness. You won’t have to worry about your companion not getting enough exercise while you're away. Some pet boarding companies walk at least twice a day, and others walk three or four times.
2. Nutritious Meals- We offer high quality, healthy meals throughout the day. Even if find a pet-friendly hotel where you’re going, you would have to pack pet food and find time to give it to them. Some pets have dietary restrictions and health problems, which may require you to cook meals. We can take care of that according to your specifications. In addition to meals, they also offer pet treats, snacks, and catnip.
3. Protect Your Stuff- When you travel and leave your pets alone in the house, they’re not getting attention from you. This can lead to mischief on their part, and you could return to a torn-up house. That’s why some people opt to take their pet to a pet boarding facility. Their staff will entertain and play with your pets, while you’re away. This will keep your pets happy, give them the attention they need, and they will not have an urge to destroy your belongings.
4. Save on Expenses- Saving money is important – we all know that. We all look for new ideas on how to save money on expenses. Pet boarding can oftentimes be more affordable than hiring a pet sitter. Pet boarding companies typically offer fixed rates, whereas most pet sitters charge by the visit which can really ramp up the costs. If you're on a budget, pet boarding in the way to go, to get the most bang for your buck.

Make Sure Your Pet is Vaccinated
It is very important that your pet is up-to-date on all vaccinations prior to boarding. We would be happy to provide you with the list of vaccinations your cat or dog should have. The last thing we want is for any pets to get sick (even though we have highly trained and skilled veterinarians and staff to treat illnesses, when necessary) so talk to our High Point, NC, pet boarding facility about the vaccinations your trusty pet needs before staying with us.
Bring What They Love
Does your cat or dog have a favorite toy or blanket? Are they picky about the kind of food they get or do they need to take certain medication? It’s always good to pack with them some things that remind them of home, whether it’s their favorite food or a toy they play with all the time. Better yet, give them one of your own personal items like a shirt or blanket that smells like you, which can provide them with the comfort they need.
