Cat Boarding at Animal Clinic of Honolulu
When you travel for vacation or business, you want the best care for your pet. Cats have special needs and finding the right boarding arrangement can be challenging. You want experienced care, with a high degree of safety and supervision to ensure your cat’s welfare. At Animal Clinic of Honolulu, we offer caring cat boarding when you are away from home.
Preparing Your Cat To Go Into Boarding
Cats are very sensitive creatures, and they don’t like changes in their environment. The right facility, with compassionate attendants, can help your cat adjust to the new situation and enjoy the change of pace. To prepare for boarding, make sure your pet is up to date on vaccinations. Your cat will need a Bordetella vaccination to stay at our facility because it protects against a respiratory illness that is common in facilities that keep a number of animals together. Our vet can provide this immunization to protect your cat. Pack your cat's usual food, to prevent digestive upsets. Bring along a familiar toy to keep the animal occupied.
What to Look for in a Boarding Facility
When looking for a boarding facility, it’s important to find one that understands the behavior and reactions of cats to reduce any stress in the animal. The boarding area should be clean and well lit. Security should be appropriate to prevent the escape of the animals being boarded. Personnel should be experienced and caring. Measures for proper feeding, medications, exercise, and interaction should be in place. Are toys and treats available? Is there a system in place in case an animal becomes ill? These are important questions to consider.
Boarding Your Cat at A Veterinary Hospital
One of the advantages of boarding your cat at a veterinary clinic is having veterinarians on hand at the first sign of illness. If your cat should develop a fever, respiratory symptoms, vomiting, diarrhea or another problem, the vet can test and diagnose the issue quickly and provide treatment on-site. The vet can also monitor the animal to ensure that treatment is effective.
