In response to the COVID-19 outbreak I will not currently be offering any "elective" services such as bathing, nail trims, ear cleaning, etc.. Following the current mandates I will continue to provide only "services for essential services" for clients with those immediate needs. On a case-by-case basis, I will consider providing assistance with medical-needs pets, and pet care for those for whom travel is unavoidable. I will also consider providing taxi service (for an essential veterinary hospital visit) for pets belonging to seniors, immune-compromised people or others who are unable to take their own pet to the vet. I will adhere to social-distancing recommendations and will take all other effective safety precautions when entering clients homes and handling their animals. Please let's all do our best to practice kindness and follow the current shelter in place mandates. Let's also keep the conversation going about all the other ways in which we can support and protect one another. I'm here for you. Thank you, and stay safe and healthy out there!
My mission is to provide:
Kind and compassionate caregiving for your pets in their own home
Reliable medical and non-medical pet care services
Custom-tailored care packages with discounts for multiple pets and services
Skilled handling of small animals and exotics, having worked with them for over 20 years
A commitment to treat you, your pets, and your home with care and respect
Positive training reinforcement on walks and during playtime
Peace of mind knowing that I'm a Licensed Veterinary Technician, Certified in Small Animal First Aid and CPR, a Certified Professional Dog Walker trough Dog*Biz, and insured through Pet Sitters Associates, LLC
