3 Ways to Deal with Your Pet When You Go on Vacation

There comes a time in every pet owner’s life, when they have to decide whether to take their pet on vacation with them, or not. On one hand, you want to enjoy some relaxing time together with your fur friend, but on the other hand, you know that is now always possible.

Some accommodations are pet-friendly, meaning you can bring your cat or dog with you, but others have a stricter policy and don’t exactly allow for dogs to run around. Plus, you need to think about your pet’s well-being as well. If you are going to visit a new city, and there will be lots of walking around and visiting all day, it may not be the best vacation for, let’s say, a cat. Below, we will explore three ways you can deal with taking care of your pet while on vacation.

Take them with you

If you do decide to ring your pet with you, you need to take care of a few things before leaving. First of all, make sure you check with the pet travel requirements for the country you are visiting. Some places require certain types of vaccination to be done way ahead of time, while others require check-ups, such as parasite testing, 1 or 2 days before departure. Make sure to look for a dyreklinikk Nittedal and talk to your vet before leaving.

If you are traveling by plane, make sure your pet is comfortable with the carrier they are going to sit in, and that they don’t experience panic attacks or other complications during travel. Certain dog and cat breeds don’t react well during flights. While on vacation, try to stick as much as possible to your pet’s usual schedule, to avoid complications.

 

Get a pet sitter

If you decide to lea your pet at home, then you must definitely get a pet sitter to take care of them. You can either hire a professional, even though they tend to get a bit pricey, or ask someone close to you to come to take care of your pet while you are gone.

The biggest advantage of a professional pet sitter is that they are trained for the job and know exactly what to do, especially if they work for a kennel Gardermoen. They will know exactly how to take care of animals and what to do if things get complicated. On the other hand, if you get s friend or family member to come by from time to time, it may be better for you pet’s psychical health, especially if your pet is used to them.

 

Take them to a professional facility

If you fear your pet may wreak havoc at home while you are gone, the best thing you can do is take them to a kennel or pet hotel for the time you are gone. There, they can be properly taken care of, they can play with other pets and you will know for sure they are well tended to.

When looking for a  kattehotell or dog hotel, make sure to ask for references, check at least a few facilities before deciding on one, and even consider a trial run before leaving for your vacation. This way, you will know that your pet is safe and you can enjoy your holiday.
