Pets on holidayPlan ahead for your pet’s holidays. You may have someone in your family to watch your pet while you are away, and there are some commercial enterprises which will look after your pets in their own home.

For most situations, boarding kennels and catteries are the answer. Before leaving your pet in kennels or cattery, visit the establishment yourself to make sure that it is suitable. Leave your pet there for a short stay (perhaps a weekend) as a trial. Once you have found a good kennel or cattery, keep using it as your pet will become accustomed to being left there for short periods.

All animals going to kennels or cattery must be fully vaccinated and protected against fleas. With dogs make sure that they receive a special Kennel Cough Vaccine.

Maybe your pet will go with you on holiday. In Scotland, remember your prevention against ticks. If you are going abroad, your pet will need a Pet Passport. This involves having your pet vaccinated against Rabies and having a blood test to make sure that the Rabies vaccine is working. The whole process can take up to seven months, so contact us and plan ahead.
