I have owned and taken care of a variety of pets for over twenty five years. I have helped to rescue, rehome and foster many dogs. Even to the point of ending up having to have rabies shots after trying to rescue a feral dog. I have lived in the same area for fourteen years, and have an excellent rapport with several vets in the area. I own two horses and a Weimeranar, that is twelve years old. My own pets are on a monthly flea medicine and I only except dogs that are on a monthly flea med as well, as heartworm medicine. This is for the protection of my four legged family. I will want to check a current vet reference for the safety of all concerned.
I have pet sat for friends and family including horses, African Grey Parrot, dogs, cats.
Over the past fourteen years I have worked at more than one barn, taking care of my own and other horses. I am experienced in holding for ferriers as well as vets etc. I have helped with breeding season, and I am familiar with how to handle stallions as well. I raised my gelding from a weanling, and did everything with him up to putting him with a professional for thirty days of training.
I have helped in emergency situations, from being stuck in fences to major emergency after care. I have worked as a professional groom for a well known trainer in the area and during that employ took care of several horses that were in the six figure range. Also taking care of very expensive tack. I know the signs of colic as well as bloat and If I am ever in doubt I make sure to be in close contact with vet and owner. I am a photographer and would also love to do photo sessions at private negotiation with you and your pets, so my schedule at present is very flexible . I can provide references for either small or large animals.
I am comfortable with all breeds large and small, and have a special place in my heart for senior dogs, ours have always lived very long lives and I understand how important the right fit is for one’s older pets.
