The GNA Pet Professors are back for your weekly quick tip. This week, Dr. Patrick shared tips about what you need to keep in mind when you are boarding an older pet. 

We all know having an older pet brings with it a lot of questions and sometimes the habits we've built up from having pets throughout their entire lives don't work anymore when they get to be older. Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a place to board your older animal.

  • What hours are staff working? If your pet needs assistance at night, will someone be there?
  • How frequently will your pet be allowed out?
  • How much room will your pet have to get up and move around wherever they are being kept?
  • Will your pet be exposed to other animals? If so, how many animals and how often?

Keeping these in mind can help make sure your pet has the best experience possible while being boarded.
