There are some cases where pet sitting may not be the best alternative for your pet. Here are some examples:

  • Most pet sitters are able to give your pet basic oral medication, and many can administer insulin injections. Some pet sitters can give subcutaneous fluids as well. If your pet is in failing health, or requires more intensive care, we would suggest boarding your pet at your vet’s office, which can provide 24 hour care.
  • If your pet is aggressive, or doesn’t react well to visitors or strange people entering your house, it would be best to board your pet.
  • If your pet gets very destructive in your absence, or suffers from severe separation anxiety, he or she may be better off at a boarding kennel around other animals and people.
