I live in Victoria Park, but am happy to travel a short way. I would feel privileged to visit, walk and care for your furry, feathery or scaly baby. Rest assured that your dog, cat, rabbit, bird or python will be loved, given medicines, and even given basic training if you wish. I also offer nail clips, anal gland expression, bathing and brushing, but not professional clipping.
I have over three years experience nursing in Veterinary clinics and am able to give an extra degree of care to geriatric, special needs, and medicine dependant pets, including those recovering from surgeries. After over a decade in animal care including shelters, pet shops, doggy day care, teaching puppy classes, wildlife rehabilitation and hand-raising parrots, there is pretty much no animal I haven't cared for including horses, frogs and joeys.
If you have a difficult dog, cat or parrot, I will still be able to give them the care and compassion they deserve. I have had so many years of working with animals who are senile, aggressive from pain, fearful due to past abuse etc., and can be the calming and loving presence they need in your absence. Great Danes or Rottweiler, awesome! A chihuahua who thinks they're a Great Dane, also awesome! A feisty Macaw, I've babysat several!
If your loved one needs sutures removed, a dressing changed, intramuscular, oral, topical or subcutaneous injections, or extra care due to mobility issues, rest assured they will be given the care they deserve. If you have a glucometer and your diabetic pet needs a daily check of their blood glucose levels, I'm happy to test and track this for you.
I will be able to give your dog at least 30 minutes at a time of walkies, with additional games, tricks if they know them, and mental stimulation. For particularly energetic dogs this can be extended to an hours walk. I've run basic puppy classes with a clinic, so can train them to sit, stay, touch and lie down. I will also play with and smooch you cat, or entertain your bird (including any tricks you've taught them).
Due to my lease, unfortunately I can't currently have your pet in my home (plus my gorgeous kitty cat doesn't like strange animals). When I have different accommodation I'll take on dogs and birds.

Andrea completed her work experience at Billy's Day-Care for Dogs over a period of 3 months. We found Andrea to be incredibly reliable, even coming in when she was unwell!
Her manner with the dogs was gentle and attentive. Her experience in vet clinics also meant that she was able to pick up on little bumps and lumps that the pups came in with. I would happily have Andrea look after my dogs and cats without hesitation. …
