Sarasota Veterinary Clinic Announces Free Pet Boarding Summer Special

Sarasota, Florida, UNITED STATES

SARASOTA, Fla., July 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bee Ridge Veterinary Clinic in Sarasota, FL announced a summer boarding special running from June through the end of August. All pets boarding for four nights or longer will receive an extra night for free. All dogs that stay longer than four nights will also receive a free bath. The boarding facilities are air conditioned for pets' comfort and sanitized for pets' safety.

Pet owners who choose to board their pets with Bee Ridge Veterinary Clinic may be able to receive a free night for their pets. All dogs and cats that board for at least four nights will receive a fifth night for free. Dogs will also receive a free bath. The special is limited to one free night, per pet, per stay.

"We are using this summer special to encourage pet owners to choose cat and dog boarding care for their pets," said the clinic's veterinarians. "Pet boarding at an animal hospital is a smart, safe choice, especially when pet owners will be out of town for an extended period."

The veterinarians emphasized that dog boarding at an animal hospital is a safer choice for a pet's well-being than being cared for by a neighbor or left at home alone. In the event of an emergency, the animal hospital's staff is available to provide immediate care and assistance.

"While it's easy to have a neighbor check on a pet for one night, we don't recommend this for extended vacations," said the Sarasota veterinarians. "Pets left alone can become anxious, nervous and upset. In the event of a health emergency, there's no safer place for a pet than right by their animal hospital."

The cat and dog boarding facilities at Bee Ridge Veterinary Clinic include separate areas for cats and dogs. Canine guests will also enjoy supervised playtime and activities. Owners can bring their pets' favorite food for twice-daily meal times. Pets will also receive daily treats. If pets are currently receiving medication, the boarding center's trained staff will be able to administer this medication in accordance with the veterinarian's prescription.

All boarding facility space is regularly sanitized to prevent the possible transmission of disease. Pet owners must present proof of up-to-date vaccinations prior to boarding, including Rabies, Distemper and Kennel Cough (Bordetella). Dogs are required to be on a monthly heartworm preventative as well as a flea and tick medication. This ensures the safety and health of all pets at boarding.

"With summer vacation in full swing, we are encouraging pet owners to arrange boarding as soon as possible," said the veterinarians. "With our free night boarding special, we know our reservations will fill up quickly!"
