As pet owners, we understand the deep bond you share with your furry companions. Whether you’re planning a vacation or a business trip, finding a trustworthy and caring environment in which to board your pet is crucial. It’s important to make sure your beloved furry friends receive the attention, love, and care they deserve while you’re away. While you might be slightly apprehensive about boarding your pet, Minnesota Veterinary Hospital provides pets in the Shoreview, MN area a safe, loving place to stay while you’re away.

What To Look For In A Boarding Facility

Any pet boarding facility should adhere to the highest standards. Some things to observe are:

  • The facility’s cleanliness
  • Chemical storage is well away from areas dedicated to pets
  • There is a fenced in or enclosed play area
  • Appropriate climate control (heating and cooling)
  • That the facility is well ventilated
  • How staff interacts with pets

In addition to your own observations, you should ask about:

  • Vaccination requirements for all pets
  • How much playtime your pet will get daily
  • How staff members handle pets who don’t get along well
  • Whether they have an emergency evacuation plan
  • Whether they can easily accommodate any special requirements your pet has
  • What hours someone is on-site with the animals who are boarded there
