Boarding

Pet Boarding From Prestonwood Animal Clinic in Houston, TX

If you are planning a business trip or a vacation, you should consider boarding your pet. There are a few benefits boarding your pet rather than leaving at home. First, when you board your pet, you can be sure that he is getting enough food and water each day. You can also be sure that he is getting adequate exercise. If your pet becomes ill while you are away, there will be someone on staff to examine and treat your pet. If you are planning to board your pet, it is important to know what to expect when he comes home.

Excessive Hunger

It is not uncommon for your pet to be hungrier than usual when he gets home. You should understand that this isn't because the boarding facility neglected to feed your pet. When you are away, it is not uncommon for your pet to lose his appetite. He will miss you, and he will be in a strange environment; therefore, he may not want to eat. When he gets home, and he is back with his loved ones in his familiar surroundings, he will want to make up for the meals that he missed.

Sleeping More

Many pets will get home from the boarding facility and sleep for hours. This is because the boarding facility did their job. While away, your pet was allowed to play and exercise. This can wear a pet out, especially if he doesn't get this much exercise at home. Also, it can be hard for a dog to get adequate sleep in a boarding facility. If there are other pets there who are up half the night, they will keep your pet up as well. When he finally gets home to his own bed, he will want to catch up on the sleep that he has missed.

Loose Stools

If your pet has loose stools when they get home, you shouldn't worry too much. If your pet becomes sick during his stay, the veterinarian on staff would have contacted you and started treatment. Most pets get very excited when they return home. This excitement can often lead to colitis, which causes loose, watery stools. Once the excitement of your reunion wears off, the consistency of your pet's bowls should return to normal. If you are planning a trip and you want your pet to receive the best care possible, you should send him to Prestonwood Animal Clinic in Houston TX. Our state of the art boarding facility is comfortable. Also, there will always be a veterinarian on staff just in case your pet has any health issues while you are gone.
