Are looking forward to the Thanksgiving holiday as much as I am? Sometimes we can get all the plans ready to travel or prepare to entertain and then remember at the last minute to make arrangements for our pets. Try to schedule ahead of time . If you are entertaining at home, please do not allow guests to feed your pet from the table. If going out of town you might try pet sitters, a neighbor , friend or family member for those pets that get stressed out easily at boarding facilities . Your pet may do well at his or her favorite doggie daycare or overnight boarding facility. Whichever is best for your pet is worth it in the end. We treat a lot of pets for anxiety these days and the options now are very safe for pets. We don’t always have to sedate them to get the best results. Is your pet having some medical problems that will need to be taken care of before you leave town? Is there a skin infection or flea problem that is still lingering since the summer? I would encourage you to have us check these things our before your dog or cat is boarded or is left with a family member, friend or pet sitter. We are available for suggestions and treatment options for your pet so that your fur-family can have the best holiday as well as you !
