With Tet just days away, pet owners planning to leave town are scrambling to make arrangements for their animals.
Pham Bich Diep, a resident of Ho Chi Minh City’s Phu Nhuan District, said until a few years ago she was unable to travel or visit relatives during Tet because she had no way to care for her cats while away.
But now she can count on a few reliable places where her four-legged friends will be cared for by professionals.
They include dog-focused centers like Hoang Gia in Thu Duc District. Petty Mart in District 6, and Raging Rottweiler in Go Vap District in addition to some cat-friendly pet hotels.
But Pet Care Hospital at Thao Dien Ward, District 2, is generally considered the best and most reliable place for leaving pets.
“We had 25 dogs and 15 cats last Tet and the number is expected to increase this year,” an employee told Tuoi Tre.
Pet Care has branches in District 7’s Phu My Hung, District 11, and in nearby Vung Tau city to meet the growing demand for such services from both Vietnamese and foreigner pet owners going away on vacation.
For the Lunar New Year of Cat, the hotel will check in its four-legged customers between January 31 and February 8 for VND1.1 million in case of a cat and for VND1.7 million to VND2.65 million in case of a dog, depending on weight.
It also offers veterinary services including check-ups and treatment, laboratory and radiology diagnosis, vaccination, and surgery, and other services like pet transport, import and export consultancy, and a grooming spa.
