Special members of one’s traditional family unit are our pets. Pets are like our children in many ways, especially when it comes to their care and safety. Most families are faced with the situation of who will provide care for their pet when they are working or taking a vacation. There are several feasible options. However, in-home pet care is the most beneficial.
In-home pet care is a valuable option that lends benefits to both the pet as well as their owner. Just like humans, pets are comfortable and stress-free when they are left within their own familiar surroundings. These surroundings include the security of their own homes as well as the scheduled daily routines they are accustomed to. An in-home pet care provider ensures that the animal will follow their typical routine (eating, sleeping and exercising) throughout the day in their everyday surroundings. In addition, in-home pet care providers can give the animals personalized one-on-one attention that they would not receive in an animal facility. Last but not least, allowing the pet to stay within their home reduces the risk of being exposed to undetected illnesses that other animals may be carrying.
It is also important for pet owners to feel safe and secure while being away from their pets. A benefit of having a pet-care provider come into your home is to make the house look lived in (collecting newspapers/mail, taking in trash etc.) which not only provides peace of mind to the owner but deters potential crime as well. Making a house look livable in addition to providing personalized attention to a pet allows the owner to be stress-free while being away from their pet.
