Merissa was great. She took care of my elderly dog under very trying circumstances. My dog took a turn for the worse while i was traveling abroad. Merissa had excellent communication skills and played no small part in me being able to get home early while my dog was still alive. I hope in the future she can help with my next dog.
I highly recommend her with no reservations.

When Merissa watches your pet
