You need to ask the business operator what their policy is around what happens if your pet gets sick while in their care. A good operator will ask you for your preferred vet contact details as well as a contact in the case of an emergency. Although the kennel, cattery and pet minders are professionals you should always expect the unexpected and be prepared for the worst. Ensure you are upfront about how you would feel about being contacted directly if something was to happen to your pet while you are away.
There are also a few things you will need to take care of before taking your holiday, like ensuring your pets vaccinations are up to date.
Bottles and ?
Most kennels and catteries require you to provide them with a certificate of vaccination and a flea treatment record before they take your pet in as they need to ensure no nasties are spread between the dogs and cats during their stay.
