I was raised out in the country and have had many wonderful pets over the years.
Dogs, cats, rabbit's, gerbil's, rat, finch, lovebirds, cockatiel, cockatoo, and macaw. I am presently learning about horses.
I presently own a mini-pomeranian, Gouldian finch and a fish tank.
I have been practicing a holistic approach to healing our pets and use natural products with my pets.
When necessary, I believe in going to the vet and following the doctor's directions.
I am very responsible when it comes to taking care of pets and I am ready to serve South Austin as I live in 78704 zip-code.
I have worked as a Pet demo-person for over 3 years at PetsMart and I have talked with many pet parent's about the needs and care of a pet. I am very knowledgable on pet food and most products.
I take care, Shaggy a lab/pit mix with a skin condition on an on going basis with deep massage's and holistic medicine. He is responding very well and I expect a full recovery. Shaggy is an emotional support animal and therefore is a working dog. I understand the needs of a support animal in that they are usually trained to do their "job" and that I need to take that into consideration when I am around them.
I play, Azuri, an Aussie because she is so full of energy at age 1 and needs a playmate to stay out of trouble because she too is aworking dog only in a defferent class.
My pom, Lil'One is 9 years old and we have been together since she was 8 weeks old. I understand the delicacy of owning a small dog and the uniqueness of their personalities.
I would love to take care of your pet's and your home as I take my job very seriously.
Your pet's need love and attention and your home need's respect.
I am sure that you will be please 100% on the care I will give to your pet.
My daily charge is for two visits a day.
I will even take a picture of your pet while you are away and text it to you each day if you wish.
I have been a pet lover my entire life and have been involved with dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, farm animals. I currently have one dog, Lil'One, my Pomeranian(age 9) but take care of 5 more dogs 2 cats and a kitten on regular basis. I believe this knowledge and working at PetsMart helps me to better understand the different breeds and their special needs.
I am ok taking care of any size dog. My concern would be the temperment of the dog and health of the pet.
I prefer to have a "Meet and Greet" time before my schedule time(at no extra cost to you) with your pet to get to know you and your style of feeding and taking care of your pet. It is important to me that you have peace of mind while you are away from your home and pet's.
I want the pet parent to be honest with me about their pet's temperment. (whine, jumps, fearful, run away, like new adults, show's aggression, ever bitten anyone, hides, barker, are you the first owner, adopted.....)
Is your pet up to date on rabies?
Is your pet up to date on other shots?
Need to know of all health issues?
I have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency. Before I sit your pet I will need to know the pet's official name at your vet. Do you have pet insurance?
I will call you first before taking your pet to the vet unless it is a life or death situation and I deem it necessary to use my time with first-aid and transporting your pet to the vet. We also need to decide upon an alternative 24 hour vet if your vet is not reachable.
I prefer to give medication with Pill Pockets although a slice of cheese will work.
When I come for the "Meet and Greet Time" is when I will have you show me your style of giving meds to your pet.
