If anyone is looking for a pet sitter my sister in law Melissa Holmes-Stack is amazing. Who wouldn't want a licensed vet tech looking after their babies while they are away!?

Melissa is trustworthy, compassionate, and well-experienced to care for all of your pet's needs! She's attentive, patient, and will shower your fur baby with the love and affection they deserve! She is the perfect choice for a pet sitter, and you should take comfort in knowing that she is a licensed veterinary technician and is trained in animal CPR. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a sitter!

A lot of experience!

I became a NYS Licensed Veterinary Technician in 2004 and have worked in the field full time ever since. My experiences and duties in this profession include medicating pets, restraining, taking blood, monitoring anesthesia, trimming nails, giving insulin to diabetic pets, giving subcutaneous fluids, cleaning ears, etc. I enjoy spending time with easy going, happy, playful dogs and so does my Terrier mix, Swayze!

What Melissa would like to know about your dog

I'd like to know if a pet has ANY aggression issues at all, no matter how minuscule, toward people OR other animals. I'd also like to know that they're up to date on their Rabies, Distemper and Bordetella vaccines before they spend any length of time in my home.
I'm comfortable with any breed as long as I'm provided the above information accurately. I'm also comfortable caring for older pets and pets that have trouble walking.
