Preparing to Board Your Pet

Leaving your pet while traveling can be difficult. That’s why it’s important to find a boarding facility that you trust. At Crosspointe Animal Hospital, serving Clifton, Lorton, and Fairfax Station, VA, we can help. Our veterinarians offer the best care for your pet while you are away. There are several things to consider before boarding your pet.


One important thing to know before boarding is what kind of food the facility has. Whether you’re your pet has allergies or is on a specific diet, it's important to know those needs are being taken care of. Make sure you inquire about the food options that will be available to your pet. You can also consider bringing your pet’s own food.


If your pet is taking any medications or supplements, it’s important to tell our veterinarians. Keeping your pet on its medications and eating routine is vital to its health. You should bring all medications and dietary supplements with you when you drop off your pet for boarding. You can also leave specific instructions about how and when to administer them.
