About Veronica

Hey there! Thanks for visiting my page. :) My name is Veronica (she/her), and I'd love to be considered as your next pet sitter.

About me:

I'm a late-twenties mama to my furbabies, Taco and Naomi. I'd do anything for my cats, and it pains me that pet care in the Vancouver area can cost an arm and a leg for pet boarding.

I know the struggle of trying to find someone reliable to look after our little loved one(s) while we're away. My goal is to provide pet owners around the Vancouver area with valuable and high quality pet care, right out of your own home. This way, your pet gets to remain comfortable and stress-free in their own space, and you get to go away feeling confident and safe in your choice with me as your pet's caretaker.

I bring 7+ years of pet care experience, plus my whole childhood growing up around cats, dogs, hamsters, reptiles, and fish. I also have confident experience with administering oral medication to cats, safely cutting cat nails, and cleaning cat ears & teeth. I am happy to travel anywhere within Vancouver and in some cases, Richmond and Burnaby.

Services:

I am excited to offer 30-minute home visits for feeding, tidying up (litter box, pee pads, etc), as well as additional help around the home such as sweeping & vacuuming pet hair, watering plants at your instruction, and bringing in your mail or deliveries. Other small household duties may be considered upon request.

I am also willing to walk and care for well trained dogs, with each walk lasting upwards of 30 minutes depending on your individual dog's exercise needs as determined by you, the pet parent. While I really love all puppers, I will note that I do not have extensive experience in handling untrained or undertrained dogs. I hope you can understand this limitation.

Please note that all services on weekdays are available during early mornings (5-7:30am) and evenings (5:30-8pm). Weekend services are available at any time throughout the day. If you require an exception, please contact me prior to booking to organize a special visit time.

Basic Expectations (services include but are not limited to the following):

At least 1 x photo update per day or house visit; Keeping in contact with owners regarding any changes with the pet and if required bringing the pets to the vet when agreed to by the owner or in an emergency; Feeding the pet as required; Access to fresh water; Dog is able to go to the toilet during the walk; Basic medication administration (non-injectables) as prescribed; Pets are kept in a hygienic condition - any messes of the pet are cleaned up, and any signs of illness or injury are reported to the owner; Any behavioural issues of the pet are disclosed; Any special requirements or instructions are written down for the sitter to prevent any misunderstanding; If feeding is required, enough pet food is provided.

For more information regarding specific expectations to be upheld by you and I, please contact me prior to booking. With all of that being said, please reach out with your specific inquiries. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon! Sincerely, Veronica. :)
