WHY NOT LET THE NEIGHBOR CARE FOR YOUR PET?

There are many options to care for a pet when you are not able to for a time. Easdale offers the best in pet care while keeping your life a bit less complicated! What are some of the reasons that pets are boarded? For many reasons, many of which you might not expect! Naturally, there can be nearly as many reasons as there are pets, but here are a few:

  1. Travel for vacation or business;
  2. Work on the house such as refinishing wood floors, pest exterminators, additions and repair of fire damage, or any workmen in the house;
  3. House guests who do not like the family pet or pets that do not like the guests;
  4. Recently moved to a new town and still closing on the new home;
  5. Showing a home on the real estate market; or
  6. Hospital stays for the owner’s health or a new baby in the family.
When surveyed, pet owners revealed fears that their pet would be depressed, get sick, or run away among other concerns. Care for pets is a major trust issue! What’s wrong with having a well-intentioned neighbor, friend or relative care for your family pet?
1. Lack of secure fencing or exercise space to avoid escapes;
2. Lack of pet health knowledge to observe and identify health issues early. Contact info must be collected and available to arrange for medical care as needed and ability to administer medications correctly;
3. Interactions of your pet with any pets that they own; how will feeding, toys, and play be managed to avoid aggression? What if there is a fight? Who would pay for the vet?
4. Liability issues–if your pet should cause property damage or bites someone in their home or neighborhood, what happens? You are considered the responsible party through ownership even though you were not there!
5. Creating personal issues–imposing an unwanted obligation and owing compensation to the amateur care giver in favors or other unspecified debts. Torn upholstery, stained carpets, and scratched woodwork just begins the list of possible damages. You are risking damaged relationships with the people in your life and complicating how favors are returned or valued.
