Hello there! I am a third year veterinary student at the University of Missouri. Along with my boyfriend Kevin, I have been pet sitting professionally ever since I began veterinary school. Before then I have lived with and helped care for numerous types of animals ever since I was born. Some of these animals include dogs, cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and many others. I currently have one dog that loves other animals and is super friendly to dogs of all ages and sizes. While I may be busy some days on clinical rotations, Kevin often has the opposite schedule as me and will be able to take care of your pet while I am at the veterinary hospital. I also have two other roommates (including another veterinary student) that would be happy to help. My previous experiences include working at a wildlife rehabilitation center and other various veterinary clinics. I have also had numerous types of clients with specific needs such as diabetes, cancer, and vision and hearing issues. Between myself and Kevin and our other roommate, it is not uncommon to have a new dog in our house each week, but we try and limit the number of dogs if possible or at least make sure they are adequately separated when we leave the house. Dogs will get daily long walks and sometimes even adventures to nearby trails! We can also take your dog on a run if he or she loves running. Cats will get lots of cuddles and a safe place to sleep at night. Our whole house loves welcoming new animals, especially my dog who gets a new buddy to play with!
We are also open to staying at your house and have had a lot of experience with this as well when taking care of diabetic patients that need insulin injections at 7:00 in the morning. If you have a special needs animal that may need medications at specific times during the day we are able to make a visit so you can enjoy the day out of town, a nice dinner, or sports event. We can also administer eye drops, ear solutions, and pills.
We also have the ability to provide other services too such as nail trims, bathes, and teeth brushing with various veterinary approved products.
If you ever find yourself in need of a pet sitter in a crunch feel free to give us a call! We are both very flexible and would love to help you!
