Christmas Pet

Holiday Pet Care by Al Barsha Veterinary Clinic

Pet Care whilst On Holiday

If you are planning to spend your Christmas abroad, make sure that you have made the proper arrangements for your pet(s). Whether your Pet travels with you or stays in a Pet Hotel or at home, Al Barsha Veterinary Clinic will be able to support your choice;

  1. ABVC Pet Travel & Relocation-Please check the rules and regulations of the country you wish to visit. ABVC Pet Travel & Relocation can help you with this. They can also inform you about possible diseases your animal may attract while abroad. It is important to check if your pet is welcome at your destination.
  2. ABVC Kennels & Cattery-Dubai has some good Kennels and Catteries. Recently ABVC have opened its own ABVC Kennels & Cattery in Dubai or call 04-3408601 for more information on Pet Hotels and Pet Boarding Facilities. If you have not made any arrangements with a Kennel or Cattery yet then urgency is required since there are only limited places available during the busy Holiday Season.
  3. Professional Pet Sitter-If you are not comfortable putting your animal(s) in a Kennel or Cattery, there are Professional Pet Sitters available in Dubai. They cater to your needs (or your pet’s needs) on a daily basis. Please contact the clinic at 04-3408601 for more information on Pet/House Sitters
  4. Pet stays home with domestic helper-Leave your correct holiday address with the one that is taking care of your animal and if possible with your veterinarian. Inform your Vet with your correct home address (including map) and who may call the veterinary clinic in case something is wrong with your pet. Discuss with your veterinarian if it is possible for him/her to make a house call in case of an emergency, since most helpers/maids do not have a driving license and/or car and most taxi drivers are not keen to take an animal in the car. If possible, have your veterinarian make a check up house call in case you do not have a professional house sitter or someone who is familiar with taking care of your pet.

We at ABVC, Pet Care Professionals, do collect your pet in case there is an emergency or just a worry whilst you are away, just sign our holiday consent form to inform us or email your exact details to
