Pets home for the holidays

-A A +A

 

Traveling over the holiday season is a tradition that many families uphold. Whether you’re going to visit out-of-town family members, or embarking on your annual Colorado ski trip, escaping from the hustle and bustle of everyday life can be quite the holiday treat. For your furry family members, however, this is not the case. Being left alone at home while the people you love are away can be an unsettling experience, so here are some tips for keeping your pets comfortable and happy while you’re gone. 

There are many viable options to consider if your pet is not accompanying you on vacation. Hiring a pet sitter, boarding your pet at your veterinary clinic or doggy care facility, or even asking your animal-loving neighbors if Spot could stay with them for the week are all good possibilities. It is your animal’s personality and preferences that determine which of these options will work best. 

“Some pets do better at home, like cats or dogs who are easily stressed, but some pets can be destructive when left alone for too long,” said Dr. Stacy Eckman, lecturer at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. “Both pet sitters and boarding facilities offer many benefits, depending on the pet.”
