Bringing your beloved pet along with you on your travels can be a lot of fun but it can also be a serious inconvenience when it comes to finding pet-friendly lodgings and other accommodations. In many cases, it's better both for you and for your pet to endure a separation period. But that doesn't mean you have to leave your special friend alone in the house or worry whether your obliging neighbor will keep up those regular visits, feedings and medication dosages, not when you can schedule veterinary pet boarding in Casper right here at Westside Animal Hospital.
Every animal benefits from extra attention they can receive through professional boarding services, especially when the dog boarding or cat boarding is provided through a veterinary clinic like ours. Pets can suffer from boredom and separation anxiety when they have to spend most of the day in solitude, and in their distress they may bolt out of the house when someone stops by to check on them. Our guests at Westside Animal Hospital enjoy being in the company of other animals and receiving regular care, attention, meals, exercise and playtime from our dedicated staff. We also understand the subtle but important difference between dog boarding and cat boarding. Dogs are social, active creatures that need plenty of space to roam, play and generally be rambunctious. Cats, on the other hand, prefer quiet, calm, serene surroundings. We make sure each type of animals gets the right ambience to ensure a happy stay at our Casper pet boarding facility.
Another, possibly even more critical benefit of boarding your pet at Westside Animal Hospital is the fact that your pet always has immediate access to our Casper veterinarian (DR, Doug Johannessen or Dr. Laura Johannessen). If something happened to your pet while alone at home, it might be hours before anyone realized it and took action. This is an especially important consideration for senior pets and animals that have special medical needs, such as medication that needs to be administered on a clockwork schedule. Our Casper veterinarian and our trained veterinary assistants are professionals at monitoring pets' health, watching out for troubling symptoms, administering medication and responding promptly and effectively to a veterinary emergency. When you know your pet couldn't possibly be in better hands, it’s not only great for your pet; it's also great for you, because it allows you to relax and enjoy your vacation or focus on your business agenda while you're on the road.
If you're interested in providing your pet with Casper pet boarding, call Westside Animal Hospital today at 307-472-5600 as far in advance as possible. This not only helps you reserve a spot on our "guest list," but it also allows you to discuss vaccination updates or other wellness procedures your pet might need from your Casper veterinarian. We look forward to hosting your furry family member!
