Special Needs Pets

If you have a pet who is on medications or requires special attention, you know how important it is to find the right care for them when you can’t be there. Hiring a pet sitter or asking a friend or family member to watch your dog while you’re out of town is always an option, but can put pressure on someone to care for your pet in a way that they might not be comfortable or do not truly know how to do.

Boarding your dog at a professional pet boarding facility like All American Pet Resorts Fort Myers ensures that your pet will receive the care and attention they need and deserve while you’re away. Our trained staff is capable of safely administering medications, providing special walks or serving a prescription diet in order to meet all your pet’s needs.

When your pet requires additional attention, do not leave their health and happiness to chance. Reserve their stay at our professional pet resort today.

Hot and Cold

It can be tough to know if your pet is comfortable in extreme temperatures. While cold is less of an issue in our area than in others, it does become very hot and humid throughout several months of the year in Florida.

Most large dogs are equipped to handle the cold weather and will not require any type of jacket or sweater unless the temperature is consistently below 20 degrees. On the other hand, large dogs do not handle the hot weather as well and are at a higher risk for heat stroke.

Small dogs raise opposite concerns; hot weather is not as detrimental to their systems, but an extra layer should be kept on them when they are outside in the colder weather.

Regardless of your dog’s size or breed, it is important to limit their activity and time outside during the extreme hot and cold weather. Never withhold water and take cues from your pet - if they want to go inside or are stopping on walks, chances are they need a chance to relax in your more temperature-controlled home.

Our boarding facility offers climate-controlled buildings to keep your dog healthy and comfortable. For more information on dog boarding in Fort Myers FL, visit our website.

Leaving Toys at Home

It can be confusing for some people when a boarding facility instructs them to leave their dog’s favorite toy at home. A toy may help your pet feel safer, more secure and more at home while enjoying their stay, but may also be the harmful during the boarding experience.

Your pet may become possessive, or “resource guard,” which may be an issue for staff while caring for your pet. This type of behavior can lead to aggression and roughness between your pet and someone else’s. Toys are also prone to get damaged or lost when sent to a boarding facility with your pet. A damaged fabric toys with a squeaker could also be a choking hazard for your pet.

For the safety of your pet and the staff, it is best to let the trained staff determine which toys are the safest for the boarding environment.

An Individual Boarding Experience

Pet boarding is the ideal service for families or individuals who travel a lot and must leave their pets behind. But just because it is convenient for you and your family does not necessarily mean that just any boarding facility will be right for your pet. While many dogs are very social creatures with a pack mentality, there are some dogs that prefer the company of people or who like to be left alone entirely.

A reputable boarding facility provides an individual boarding experience for your pet. If your dog likes to be around other dogs, they can ensure ample playtime in daycare where your dog can make lots of new friends. If your dog is more content to play by themselves, they can have a quieter more private experience. If anxiety is an issue, a trained pet boarding expert can provide the proper care and attention that your dog needs in order to feel safe and secure while you’re away.

There is not a “one size fits all” when it comes to pet boarding, and All American Pet Resorts is happy to provide the very best in dog boarding for your pets while you’re away. Click here to learn more about our dog boarding services.

Holiday Boarding

The winter holidays are best spent celebrating with friends and family. For many of us, that will mean traveling during the holiday season to see the ones we love.

When this is the case, call All American Pet Resorts in Fort Myers FL.

Take Precautions around the Holidays

With Thanksgiving and Christmas on the horizon, it’s important to remember that many of our holiday treats are toxic to our furry friends. Chocolate is one of the most problematic treats for our dogs, especially during this time of year when it is readily available in many households. Chocolate is extremely toxic to your dog and requires emergency intervention when consumed in large doses. Additionally, holiday plants, such as poinsettias, are poisonous to both dogs and cats.

The best way to keep your pets safe during the holidays is to keep food and plants away from them to the best of your ability. Keep candy, cookies and plants at a high enough height in cabinets where they will not be accessible to your pets. If you do have any questions about specific items that your pet may have gotten into, it is best to contact poison control or local veterinary office right away.
