Pet Sitter in Richardson

- One year in animal healthcare as Veterinary Assistant - Over 25 years experience with dogs of all sizes, cats of all dispositions, rabbits, parrots, and ferrets - Experience in freshwater and saltwater aquarium - Chemistry grad student at UT Dallas in Richardson - Dual BS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology -- I'll make your pets smart! ;) - Deep love and respect for pets Why I love pet sitting: I grew up in a home with three dogs, two ferrets, and a bunny. As a teen, I also had a pet parrot named Papaya. I've always been around and loved pets! It's amazing how a little one can wiggle it's way into your heart in no time! I have a lifetime of experience with dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, and parrots. I also have clinical experience caring for dogs and cats in a veterinary setting. As a student, I cannot afford to maintain my own fur-babies, but will love and care for yours! I've been a go-to for my friends and family for a while now and I'm starting to realize that others might appreciate my services as well. My pets: I, personally, have a saltwater tanks --a JBJ 29G nanocube. At first, I maintained it using treated tap water that was otherwise consistent on parameters (chemist!), but had algae contamination. After a huge algae bloom I switched to RO water. It's expensive, though! I also upped the cleanup crew with some turbo snails and the algae is almost gone! I was moved to switch to saltwater (from freshwater) when I walked by a tank at the fish store and realized a maroon clown was playing hide and seeks with me. I immediately started planning a conversion. I visited the fish every couple of days while my tank was cycling! Now, her name is Bonnie and she's really wiggled her way into my heart. I have a misbar male Maroon clownfish, named Clyde, and couple of anemones as well. Some say a grad student shouldn't be in such an expensive hobby, but I'm working on making it work! :) My experience administering medication: I have experience in a veterinary setting and have medicated many dogs orally and subcutaneously. With detailed instructions, I can do almost anything!
