My name is Hannah, and I am a pet lover with very broad experience. I believe in home pet care is the best thing for your babies when you are away, and I understand how difficult it is to find one place that will 'do it all'. My dogs are like my children and I enjoy spending time with them, and would want them in the hands of someone that does the same.
I have a 3 bed, 2 bath, 2 living space house that has flooring to accommodate any kind of pet mess and is easy to keep clean. Our grass is mowed short to minimize any yard debris that could cling to the furr of long haired pooches, as well as the chance that any pests could hitch a ride home. Supervised access to the fenced back yard is the only way that we provide access to our own pups, and it will be the same with yours. If they are outside then so are we!
Feeding schedules can be accommodated for each dog to provide consistency in training efforts of young puppies, or with medical needs. I have experience in tube feeding infant animals as well as adults with permanent feeding tubes. I work as a nurse, and have a sound knowledge of cleanliness with caring for a tube incision site.
I am confident and competent in giving injectable medications, subcutaneous fluids by gravity or push bolus, and caring for surgical incisions or open wounds. I am not a veterinarian though, and will not treat your pet without the tools and direction of a licenced care provider. ( IE, I will not diagnose and recommend treatment, but I will carry on any necessary care prescribed)
My husband and I do not have children in our home and consider our home safe for dogs that are not accustomed to them.
I have extensive experience in the care of pregnant cats and dogs, as well as whelping/queening (labor and delivery). I understand that sometimes sitting or boarding care is needed for animals that find themselves pregnant accidentally or on purpose, and that great skill and experience of the person watching over them is required for the best outcome. I am very experienced in care during pregnancy, labor and delivery and have provided in home supervision of expecting animals on "puppy or kitten watch" to ensure labor progresses smoothly, and alert owners when there could possibly be a problem. Again, I am not a veterinarian, but it is important for owners to know about complicating factors in this area ASAP so that help can be sought as early as possible.
I hope you take a minute to get in touch! You'll love our place and your pet will too.
