I am a 2018 graduate veterinarian from Murdoch University, Western Australia. I am currently working in a local veterinary hospital north of Adelaide City.
I have been actively engaging in pet-sitting for close to 7 years. I had 4 years of kennel hand experience in Perth while I was pursuing my veterinary education at University. Even though I have graduated as vet, I am still involved in pet-minding from time to time as I still do enjoy it!
I am proficient with all aspects of pet-sitting and dog walking. I have handled over many dogs of various sizes with different temperaments, looked after cats, watched over ducks, cared for ferrets and fed fishes & axolotls. I also have extensive experience taking care of both senior pets and very young baby animals. I do have a vehicle available for emergencies or to simply take dogs to the park or their favourite walking places. My routine is to walk dogs for at least 30 minutes to provide sufficient aerobic exercise or I can go for shorter/longer trips depending on their needs. I always take lots of photos of pets under my care and sharing them with their pawrents so that the owners are reassured their furkids are safe, happy and well-looked during their trips .
I offer overnight pet-sitting at the pet's home or house-visits at least twice a day. I also offer day-time pet sits at the pet's home. I also do dog walking and puppy-minding.
Additionally, I have also lots of experience working with and handling dogs as a kennel-helper in Perth for more than 3 years, thus I am very familiar with kennel duties. On top of that, I am also a certified and trained Veterinary Technician/Veterinary Nurse in Singapore.
Having a veterinary background, I am confident in giving medications, feeding special diets, providing first-aid and caring for pets with existing medical conditions or special needs.
I always perform every task to my best ability while showing compassion, gentleness, professionalism and lots of cuddles!
I am also very passionate about animal welfare and I always put in my best effort with animal care.
I usually only provide my services to areas within 20 minutes from my workplace. ...
