If you have a cat or dog, and you are planning on taking a trip away from home, finding someone to care for your pet in your absence is necessary. Tri-County Animal Hospital in Cumming is a facility that offers pet boarding services when your furry friend can’t come along for the ride. Our team of veterinarians consists of Dr. Ashleigh Wallace Huggins, Dr. Lori Wyatt DaCosta, and Dr. Rebecca Teal. So that you feel a bit more comfortable with leaving your dog or cat at our facility, below is a bit more information about our boarding services and what your furry friend can expect when he or she arrives.
Bring In Your Pet For An Assessment
Before your pet stays at our pet boarding facility, we will need to perform a routine evaluation of your pet’s health. This checkup ensures that your pet is not suffering from a medical ailment that requires treatment or that could be a risk to the other animals staying on the premises. If your dog or cat is behind on its immunizations, we request that the proper immunizations are administered during this assessment session. This assessment is an important part of our boarding process and it is necessary for not only your pet's health but also others staying at the boarding facility.
Bring Along Luxuries From Home
Your dog or cat will stay in comfortable quarters throughout its stay. There is plenty of room for exercising and relaxing. During the stay, having a few items from home is beneficial to keep your pet relaxed while in a new atmosphere. Consider bringing along a favorite blanket, comfortable bedding, or a play toy that your pet uses often. Our staff will keep these items in their allotted area so that they have access to them at all times. If your pet requires a particular diet, bring it along as well since having a familiar food goes a long way when your pet is adjusting to a new environment.
Know That Veterinarians Are Always Available
Pets that suffer from medical difficulties are checked often during their stay. Our veterinarian staff, which consists of Dr. Ashleigh Wallace Huggins, Dr. Lori Wyatt DaCosta, and Dr. Rebecca Teal, will monitor your pet for any signs of a problem and provide appropriate treatment if required. If your pet needs medication during their stay, our staff will handle the administration of it at the proper times. Our staff is also available to handle emergencies should one occur during your pet's stay. Having a veterinarian available at all times is a huge benefit for those who worry about their pet's well-being.
