Sophiane did a great job giving my cat an injection at home. She took her time getting to know him a bit and made the whole process simple & easy. I’m so glad to have found her and look forward to working together again.
I run a sanctuary for senior/special needs dogs. We normally have 15+ dogs at any given time, and Sophiane is one of the only people we trust taking care of our dogs. She is great with our oldies, proficient in giving all kinds of medications (oral and injections) as well as giving fluids. There aren't any issues she hasn't been able to handle. She is also great with the dogs that have behavioral issues ...
Sophia is the fur-mom and foster for several senior dogs and it shows! Over the years, she cared for our mutt, Bruce, even into his seniorhood when he became paralyzed in the back legs and urinary and fecally incontinent.

Vet Tech, Loves Special Needs Pets!
As the director of a local senior dog rescue and a veterinary technician, I have extensive experience working with both special needs and senior dogs and cats. There are no conditions I am unwilling to work with. I am experienced with administering oral medications (even with the cleverest dogs and cats), injectable medications (including insulin for diabetics), SQ fluids, and many other procedures. I am also experienced with paralysis (including bladder and bowel expression), dementia ...
What Sophiane would like to know about your dog
I would prefer to only care for senior and/or special needs animals. For mobility impaired dogs that I would have to lift (as in carry, not simply assist), I try to draw the line at around 100 lbs, but can be flexible depending on whether or not lifting harnesses can be used to assist.
I love all breeds, including "bully" types. I also work with animals that have behavioral issues on a frequent basis (in both cats and dogs).
