It's All in the Details

Summer holidays are in full swing and for many of you that means traveling away from home. Although a lot of people take their pets with them on vacation, many furry, winged, and gilled pets are left at home in the care of a pet sitter. Hopefully you have done your due diligence and hired or acquired someone competent, reliable and trustworthy. That being said, here are a few reminders before you leave.
  • Make sure you confirm your travel dates with your pet sitter. Let him/her know what day and time you are leaving and returning.  Set up an agreement for how your pet's care will be handled if you are delayed getting back.
  • Write out feeding instructions for all of the pets. This is particularly important if you have a pet on a special diet. If supplements are required, be sure to list those to.
  • Make sure your pet sitter is aware of any changes in your pet's health if they have cared for your pet before.
  •  Write out a list of any medications your pet is required to take including the name of the medication, the amount, how it is administered, if it needs to be refrigerated, if it needs to be given at specific times and with food. Let the pet sitter know where the medication can be found.
  • Be sure to leave the name, phone number and address  of your veterinarian and the emergency service you use.
  • Leave the numbers where you can be reached and another name and number as an emergency contact if you are unavailable.
  • Let your pet sitter know who to call if there is a problem in your home, ie plumbing, electrical etc. whether it be a Landlord or someone else.
  • Leave an extra key to your home with a trusted neighbor and tell the pet sitter who that is.
  • Be sure to have enough supplies on hand to last the length of your trip: food, supplements, medications, litter, potty pads,treats, etc.
A safe and enjoyable trip for you and your pets left behind, is all in the details.
