FAQ

My Pet Buddy Frequently asked Questions.

What will happen at the initial consultation?

I will come to your home and meet you and your pets, I will go through all the services you require and take notes on your pets meal times and exercise routines. I will ask for important telephone contact numbers such as vets number and close friend or relative contact number.

Will you be contacted in an emergency?

Yes I will contact you in the event of emergency or accident. In the event of needing veterinary help I would take the pet to your own vet which will be arranged with you before your departure.

Will the house sitter clean the house?

I will leave your home as I found it I will do light household chores and keep the place clean in your absence. I will water any house plants, hanging baskets borders and green house plants for you.

Will your pets be exercised properly?
