– What Makes Lucy’s Pet Care Different? –
Firstly, Lucy’s Pet Care is a professional service – this is what I do for a living. So it means that I have lots of time available to look after your animals properly while you’re away from them. Secondly, my services are different from hobby pet carers (part-time, errand services, and child-next-door pet care) because:
I am a fully insured and trustworthy pet sitter. With many years experience in caring for pets, I regularly read about things that may present hazards to your pet as well as completing a pet first aid course and am always equipped with a pet first aid kit in case of emergencies. Previously I have volunteered with the Bolton RSPCA branch where I furthered my knowledge with specifically cats and dogs, Regularly visiting Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary to exercise the dogs and did months of work experience at Greenmount Wild Bird Hospital, where I found my love for our local wildlife and learned to health check and administer appropriate treatment and medication.
I achieved a Triple Distinction Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management – as part of this course I studied and carried out the health and husbandry of domestic and exotic mammals. This ranged from farm animals to Primates and Tapirs. I also have the knowledge and ability to care for reptiles, amphibians, fish and small mammals such as rabbits and guinea pigs.
I truly LOVE what I do! More than a profession, pet care is a vocation. I am drawn to the care of animals, and as such, I am a concerned, compassionate care-giver. I have my own pets - Four beautiful house rabbits called Lando, Padmé, Leia and Rey, and our Lhasa Apso Mabel who loves seeing all her doggie friends everyday.
I truly LOVE what I do! More than a profession, pet sitting is a vocation. I am drawn to the care of animals, and as such, I am a concerned, compassionate care-giver. I have my own pets - a dog called Tessa, a cat called Jasmine, and 2 Russian Dwarf Hamsters named Frodo and Faye. I also have two tropical fish tanks, both with a variety of species.
Unlike the hobby carer (the part-timer, the errand service, or the child-next-door who pet sits for extra cash) Lucy's Pet Care is devoted to provide your pet with the best possible care. I spend a great deal of my time and income on furthering the quality of my services, and making you and your pet happy! As well as feeding, changing water (and bedding when necessary) and exercising animals, I take care of special requirements - such as administering any medicines - something which not all pet care services carry out!
