For some animals, especially cats, the stress of boarding can result in physical distress for the majority or entirety of the stay. Fear and timidity may reduce appetites And often pets will lose weight when boarded. In addition, there is more opportunity for your pet to contract a contagious disease or parasite like kennel cough or giardiasis. And there is always the risk of injury due to self-trauma or altercations with other boarders during social time. Pet sitting allows your pets to stay at home. Because they are in their own comfortable space, it eliminates the additional expense of amenities offered by kennels to relieve stress. And there’s no need to pack up the car and drive to the kennel! Convenient, personalized pet care for less than the cost of boarding!
