About Michelle

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! I am very excited to become your pet's caretaker and friend! I believe that the animals in our lives make our lives whole and the care we provide for them should be the best. As pet owners, our dogs, cats, and small animals are not just pets, they are our FAMILY. My services include tailored care based on each individual pet's needs.

My Experience:
I have been caring for animals as a Veterinary Technician for the past 10 years, which has provided me with a wide range of experience. My veterinary experience includes general care, emergency medicine, alternative/holistic medicine, rehabilitation, and in home hospice and palliative care. Experienced in specialized care for senior pets and pet with special needs. I greatly enjoy caring for all types of animals, including small to extra-large breed dogs, multiple cat breeds, small animals, pets of all ages, and pets with special needs & mobility issues.

My Certifications:
* Certified in Pet Loss & Grief Companioning
* Certified in Class IV Laser Therapy
* Certified in Pet First Aid & CPR

About Me:
My husband and I recently moved to Hermosa Beach from Chicago with our 2 dogs, Sam and Pickles. Sam is an 8 year old Shepard mix who loves to nap and sunbathe on the patio all day. Pickles is a 5 year old Border Collie mix who loves to snuggle and play with her "babies"!
