What do pet boarding services include?

Pet boarding services include all the activities needed to ensure your pet stays in a safe and hospitable environment while you’re away from home. This service is especially useful when you need to leave in short notice, and you have no one available to take in your precious pets. This boarding service isn’t limited to dogs or cats; reptiles, rabbits, and other small animals can apply for animal boarding.


Pet feeding & grooming

Your hired pet boarding specialist can feed your pet at the same time that you usually provide them. Their water bowls or bottles are topped up with water come feeding time. If your pet has special dietary restrictions, some specialists can procure and give them the specific food that their diet requires, but this can cost extra. 


If your pet has special grooming needs or it’s been a while since their last grooming session, some pet boarding providers can provide grooming services for your pet. This can include a bath, getting them dried off and having their nails and overgrown fur-trimmed as appropriate. Note that grooming services are separate services that you can also book on our platform. 


Pet hotel duties: Cleaning beds

After your pet has settled in, your pet boarding specialist checks their bed regularly for messes. If the beddings are soiled, these can be replaced with fresh bedding, and the mattress switched to a new one. If your pet cat has filled their litter box, this should be cleaned, and fresh litter is placed in the litter box. 


Exercising your pet

Some pet boarding specialists may take your pet to have regular playtime or exercise sessions within the pet boarding house or pet hotel. They can play with your cat or walk your dog, or allow them to roam around the facility for at least half an hour each day. You can provide your pet’s favourite toys, but some specialists may provide these for your beloved pet to enjoy during their exercise or playtime sessions. 


Giving pets their medication

If your pet has health issues or is a senior that needs regular medication, your pet boarding specialists can administer the medication they need. Your hired specialist makes sure to follow the dosage instructions you or your veterinarian provide. Should the medicines run out, some specialists can go to a nearby store to restock.


Animal boarding: Sending updates

Your pet boarding export can inform you of your pet’s status via updates sent on a free messaging platform of your choice. They can send you pictures in real-time or record a short snippet. They can send you updates daily to assure you that your pet is in good spirits, and in good hands.

Bella is domestic short hair Tabby Culico who is about 2 and half years old. She needs a home for a period between 13 November to 23 December. She is a home cat and very independent will do her own thing. Your job would be to feed Bella once a day. Scoop the litter every day and change the litter every week, very easy and not a lot of work. She has been vaccinated and wormed recently so no health issues there.
