Why You Should Board with a Vet
It’s hard enough leaving your four-legged friend behind when you have to travel, and many of us struggle with all of the questions of the unknown. If you consider that in 2015, American pet owners spent more than $5.41 billion in pet grooming and boarding services (according to a report released by the American Pet Products Association), it’s a safe bet to say that you, dear pet owner, are not alone.
The questions you may have about boarding your pet may vary, but it’s pretty safe to say they’ll include the following:
“Will they be played with enough?”
“What if something happens while I’m gone?”
“Is someone treating them well?”
“What if my dog or cat has medicines they need to take? Can I trust someone to manage this as well as I would?”
“Will they get along with their pet sitter?”
While it might seem odd that we at Ambassador Animal Hospital in Greenville, S.C., would offer boarding services like a boarding kennel would, but we truly understand the needs you have when boarding your pet. You want to make sure they are going to be safe, cared for and happy—whether you are gone for one night or entire weeks. It’s important to know that someone is around to administer medicines correctly and at the right times, or that there is a doctor on call if anything goes wrong.
That’s why we have expanded our Dog and Cat Boarding Services for our clients. When you board with Ambassador, you’ll have the peace of knowing that your pet will be in good and familiar hands and that they will be safe and happy for the duration of your time apart.
And, because of our full array of services and familiarity with your family and your dog or cat, we can provide other needed services—like annual check-ups or wellness care, vaccines, or dental cleanings —at the time of boarding. This saves you time and money in the long run—all through the expertise of our vet techs and staff. We also take the time to ensure that each pet gets individual playtime and attention, we make sure we are caring for your pet just as well as you would.
