Bowser Limo Pet Sitting Service is educated and experienced in animal care. We want nothing more then to improve the quality of life for animals, starting with the ones we have as part of our families.
Our pet Sitting service provides detailed compassionate care for cats, rabbits, ferrets, birds, reptiles and fish when their human parent is unable to care for them.
We can administer medications in a pleasant manner, provide soothing massages for achey legs, brush teeth with pet appropriate paste, trims nails and provide training.
We offer "visits" as well as live in pet sitting. The routines include bringing in your mail and newspaper, checking the house for deliveries, breakage, storm damage, vents blocked by snow, downed branches, litter and anything out of the ordinary. As we enter your home we greet your pet by name, so he/she knows who is coming by voice. Dogs with separation anxiety or submissive issues are greeted using agreed upon behaviour modification techniques.
We inspect the interior for any signs of upset. We clean food and litter box areas, rinse and refill water dishes, take dogs out for socialization, structured exercise or other previously agreed upon outings.
Our background is in veterinary technology with recertification as a cvt and professional pet sitter. This requires training in animal care areas including nutrition, behaviour, safety, training and issues affecting the quality of your relationship with your pet. Thus, a secondary goal is to improve the relationship you have with your critter family members.
Bowser Limo is owned and operated by a certified veterinary technician since 2002. This requires continuing education to maintain licensure. Your pet sitter is also a certified professional pet sitter with Pet Sitters' International, bonded and insured. In 2007 we attended the
ASPCA Animal Poison Control conference in Urbana, Illinois. Also in 2007 we gained additional certification through Pet Tech animal cpr/first aid. In 2009, 2011 and 2012 we attended the North American Veterinary Conference in subjects including animal nutrition, parasitology, shelter medicine, gastrointestinal issues, tick borne diseases and behaviour. In 2010 I obtained certification from the American Red Cross in first aid and cpr for dogs and cats. We are a member of NAVTA, PSI, CAVT and local animal welfare groups.
10% of our pet sitting profits goes to helping less fortunate pets.
