Boarding Your Pet When You Go Out of Town

Although going out of town can provide a nice break from normal activities for pet owners, they often worry about the care their pets receive while they are absent. However, if you implement a few tips, you can reduce the stress of separation, both for yourself and your pet. Here are some tips for leaving your pet with us: 

  • Visit the facility in advance to make sure it is clean, safe and well supervised. 
  • Make sure your dog or cat is up to date on vaccinations to ensure they don't catch a disease while in contact with other animals. Usual core vaccinations should be current, along with a bordetella and influenza vaccine, which protects against an illness common in animals kept together in a facility. 
  • If your pet has a health problem, make an appointment with your vet in Knoxville to ensure the condition is under control and that medications are updated. 
  • Place food, treats, and medications in marked containers to bring to the facility. We provide blankets and bedding so no need to bring your own. 
  • When dropping off your pet, hand them over to the facility staff with a quick goodbye. Avoid long goodbyes, which can make the animal feel insecurity.
