If you’re planning to travel around or outside of British Columbia, there are many potential options for taking care of your pets. You might choose to take them with you in some situations, or you might be interested in finding local boarding options. However, one great option is in-home sitting, which is especially ideal for pets who are more anxious or less comfortable around other animals. Here are some great Vancouver businesses for in-home sitting.

Make sure your dog, cat, or other animal stays safe

An in-home sitter is one of the best options for ensuring safety when you’re going to leave a dog, cat, or any other pet at home for a period of time. However, you’ll also need to put in a bit of work before you hand over your keys, which might require you to check out possible health issues and get information about behavioral concerns. If you have any worries about these areas, book an online virtual care appointment with Vetster to get answers to your questions.
