ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Pet Talk is a segment airing during 7@four each Wednesday. You can send us your questions through our website and ask professionals what you should do for your pet.

This week’s question: “I’ve planned a week-long vacation this summer and I cannot take my pets with me. I’m also nervous about being away from them. Should I board my pets or should I get a pet sitter? How do I find a reliable pet sitter or boarding kennel?”

We spoke to Julie Rickmond with the Roanoke Valley SPCA and she touched on what to do in this type of situation.
