How to Prep Your Pets for When You Return to Work.jpgPets are excellent companions, and it only fits that you give them all they deserve. Now that we’re starting to return to work in person, this can take a toll on our pet’s welfare and pose a challenge for pet owners. Here are some helpful tips to help you prepare your pets as you prepare to return to the office.

Research Pet Care Services

Conduct research on prospective pet care services in your area. Each business has different propositions and pricing factors to consider. Choose a service that suits you and your pet’s needs.

Some things to consider when choosing a pet care service include:

●      The quality and spaciousness of the facility

●      Hours and times.

●      Friendly staff to care for your pet.

●      Grooming options.

●      Other pet owners’ reviews 

●      Close location to your work or your home.

Invest in Pet Care Insurance

The primary benefit of pet insurance is that it safeguards the health and safety of your pet. Emergencies and injuries are unpredictable but you can predict that they will be expensive. So it’s better to be prepared. Having insurance will help with the costs of check-ups, preventative care, diagnostic care, tests, x-rays, surgeries, shots, and vaccinations. Investing in pet insurance will give you peace of mind and decrease the costs of your bills. Also, before purchasing pet insurance, research and learn about the different service packages to make sure they meet your pet care needs.

Take Your Pet to Get a Check-Up

Before you return to work and start leaving your pet alone or with a pet daycare, schedule a health check-up appointment with your veterinarian.

Make sure your pet is up to date on all its vaccinations and that there are no other health issues. Ask for any documents such as vaccine verifications if you are required to present should a pet care facility or professional pet sitter request them.

Going in for a check-up will help you better understand your pet’s health condition and will help you make more informed preparations when leaving your pet at home.

Determine Your Specific Pet Care Needs

Take into consideration if your pet has specific care needs.

●      Does your pet have anxiety? Is your pet used to regular walks at a specific time?

●      Do they have special dietary needs or preferences? Are they allergic to certain foods? Do they have to take additional supplements?

Thinking about these factors in advance will aid in better planning for when you return to work and will help keep your pet more comfortable in your absence.

Before you can report to work, find ways to safeguard the welfare of your favorite companion. Ensure your pet is comfortable and that you find a responsible person or facility to care for them in your absence. If there are people at your home who can care for your pet or if you opt for a pet care service, inform them of your pet’s needs. After all they aren’t just your pet but your family.
