As of April 2021 I'm fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and I will take whatever precautions we decide on when entering your home and handling your animals. I wash my hands or use hand sanitizer between appointments and regularly clean my tools and equipment. Let's keep the conversation going about all the ways in which we can support and protect one another. I'm here for you. Thank you, and stay safe and healthy out there!
