Not only is Kristyn an incredible person to begin with, but her knowledge of animals paired with her compassion to care for them is indescribable and a rare find these days. I am one of those crazy dog moms and when it comes to Kristyn, I don't even hesitate when booking her to care for my two male dogs- she shows them endless love and she is very responsible and aware of their individual needs ...

We first found Kristyn DeCosta via a glowing recommendation ("Awesome!") by our long-time, very respected veterinarian at Angell Memorial, for whom Kristyn worked as a vet tech. We needed no further references. Kristyn is a responsible, caring pet-care person, whom our cats loved immediately. We trust her with our beloved felines, and our home, so we essentially trust her with our lives! We cannot recommend her more highly.

Kristyn has dog and house sat for me on multiple occasions, and my dog loves her! Having a vet tech background helps a lot by easing your anxiety of leaving your dog at home, but she also takes great care of your house while you're gone!

About Kristyn

Part-time Veterinary Technician!

I am a part-time veterinary technician with about 8 years of experience. I recently moved to the South Shore area and I am looking to expand my animal-sitting hobby/business. I am fully capable to administering medication if needed, and taking care of the poor, sick animals that just need more than average attention. I do work at a veterinary hospital, so I will not be around full-time throughout the day, but I am sure ...

What Kristyn would like to know about your dog

I would like to be aware of any medical conditions, medications that need to be administered, and any precautions (such as dog aggressive, animal aggressive, difficult on a leash, still training, etc.) Not much will stop me, but I would appreciate being aware before hand.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR
Special Needs Dog Experience
Injected Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

When Kristyn watches your pet

We will walk around the neighborhood (if applicable), and if you allow it, I'd love to bring them on some nature trails so we can enjoy the outdoors!
