Holiday Planning with Pets - A Q&A

The holiday season is fast approaching, and while it's a time of joy and celebration, it can also bring about some unique challenges for pet owners. At Sodo Veterinary Hospital, we understand the importance of ensuring your furry family members are well taken care of during this festive time. In this blog post, we'll answer common questions about holiday pet care, pet boarding, and the importance of stocking up on pet food.

Where can I leave my pet if I go on holiday?

If you're planning a holiday getaway and can't take your canine/feline companion with you, consider pet boarding. Our vet boarding services at Sodo Veterinary Hospital in Orlando, Florida, provide a safe and comfortable environment for your pets. We understand that leaving your furry friend behind can be a tough decision, but rest assured that our experienced team will ensure they receive the best care.

Can you put a pet in a kennel while on vacation?

Yes, you can! Our modern and spacious Veterinary office will keep your pet happy and comfortable while you're away. We offer pet boarding services that are tailored to your dog's/cat’s needs, with plenty of TLC.

What are the disadvantages of pet boarding?

While pet boarding offers many benefits, it's essential to consider potential drawbacks. Some dogs may experience anxiety when separated from their owners, but our trained staff is skilled in providing the love and attention they need to feel at ease. Additionally, it's essential to book your pet's boarding spot early, as our boarding calendar fills up quickly, especially during the holiday season.

Do pets miss their owners when they go on holiday?

Absolutely! Pets are loyal and deeply attached to their owners, so they may miss you when you're away. However, with our caring and attentive staff, your dog will receive the love and care they need to feel comfortable during their stay.

How do I pack food for vacation?

Preparing your pet’s essentials for your holiday trip is crucial. We recommend stocking up on their favorite pet food well in advance. At Sodo Veterinary Hospital, we've taken the initiative to stock hard-to-find pet food options so that you can be well-prepared for your holiday travels. Ensure you have enough food to last the entire trip and include any medications or special dietary needs.

If you find yourself running low on food, don’t worry, we have you covered! We just restocked on a variety of hard-to-find foods, and are ready to help.

What are the tips for pets for the holidays?

The holiday season can be exciting but also overwhelming for pets. To make it a joyful time for your furry friend, consider these tips:

  • Create a safe space for your pet away from noisy celebrations.
  • Be mindful of holiday decorations and keep potentially hazardous items out of reach.
  • Stick to your pet's regular routine as much as possible.
  • Give your pet plenty of love and attention.

How hard is it to get pet food during the holidays?

Finding the right pet food during the holidays can be challenging, especially if you have specific dietary requirements for your pet. That's why we've made it a priority to stock up on a wide range of pet food options, ensuring that you won't run out of supplies when you need them the most. Be sure to visit us to get your pet food needs taken care of.

How hard is it to get pet medicine during the holidays?

Medication can sometimes be harder to find, particularly during the holidays. We have started recommending that our patients request medication refills at least a week in advance. This gives us a good chance of being able to fulfill the request within the time window that you need it.
