Pet care while you’re in hospital

It is only natural that if you have to go into hospital for a period of time, that you will be worried about the care of your pet.

If you are only in hospital for a short period of time, you might be able to get help from family, friends, a neighbour or even your local vet. If you are able to pay for care, you might consider boarding kennels or catteries, or pet sitters.

If this is not an option, there are fostering charities who can put arrangements in place for someone to look after your pet, either in their own home or a care centre.
