Traveling with Your Vet Vs. Pet Boarding from Your Veterinarian in Memphis  

A Memphis veterinarian who offers pet boarding has the skill and expertise to take care of your pet's needs in every way possible when you're away. However, you might want Spot or Fluffy to come on vacation with you. Because you have a tough decision to make between boarding from a veterinarian in Memphis, who serves Memphis, Cordova, Bartlett, and Germantown and taking your pet with you, you'll need to weigh several factors to make a decision.  traveling vs pet boarding from your memphis veterinarian

1. Expense to Travel With Your Pet 

The expense to travel with your pet is oftentimes higher than if you would put your pet in a boarding facility. You have to consider that it costs money for your pet to fly on a plane, and you have to pay additional fees to have your pet at a hotel if you can find a hotel that will take your pet at all.  

2. Accidents

Your pet might get sick on the journey. On the other hand, you might deal with other bodily functions that'll stain the interior of your car.  

3. Stress on Both of You 

Your pet might be stressed to travel, and it doesn't help that traveling with your pet puts excess stress on you. When your pet is in boarding, a veterinarian like ours will ensure your pet remains healthy and stress-free while he's with us.  

4. Special Requirements in Different Areas  

Your pet must have certain pet vaccinations in order to travel to certain places. You must get a dog vaccination or cat vaccination prior to your pet arriving at your destination. On the other hand, if you want to get a dog vaccination or cat vaccination to meet the requirements of our facility, our veterinarian will provide all of the necessary vaccinations on site.   

5. Not All Pets Can Travel  

Keep in mind, not all pets are able to travel due to medical conditions. Animal boarding is a safe option for your pet.
