Pet Sitter Prep
Without a doubt, there will be times when you have to leave your animal companion in the care of friends or family. Even if it’s only for a day or two, entrusting another with the welfare of your pet means it becomes that person’s responsibility to deal with any unexpected circumstances that could arise in your absence. To make sure they’re prepared for a potential situation—and to give yourself some peace of mind—it’s best to leave them with information they can use in case of an emergency.
Just like you would do for your child’s school or a loved one’s workplace, leave your pet sitter with all the contact information he or she would need to deal with a medical emergency. The phone number and location of your area’s closest Nashville Pet Emergency Clinic facility, as well as contact information for your regular veterinarian will prove very helpful to have handy in an emergency situation.
Also highly recommended, you may leave your sitter with a copy of our emergency intake form, filled out in advanced so that in the event it would be necessary to bring your pet to the clinic, the required information is already prepared to get your animal companion admitted and treated as soon as possible.
Consider pet sitter prep just another part of your pet emergency kit: a simple tool to keep your companion covered.
You can find a directory of local pet sitters in our own pet care resources.
