I am a qualified Veterinary Assistant with over 15 years experience working with small animals: dogs, cats, birds, and wildlife (in particular, seal pups, birds of prey and bears.) I have worked a number of years doing rural veterinary emergency work with dogs, cats and wildlife particularily seal pups. I am extremely passionate about all animals and do not remember a time in my life, where my bed was without one or I wasn't nursing one back to life.
Animals are a huge part of my life and always will be.
I was born in England, 1962 in Bishops Stortford, Essex and attended boarding school in Lymington, Hampshire. I have lived all over England, including Cardiff & Penarth in Wales. At age 5, my family and I, moved to Nigeria, West Africa, where my father was stationed for work over a 6 year period. During that time, we rescued many animals: dogs, cats, a turkey and numerous West African Grey (baby) Parrots. In 1974 my family and I immigrated to Canada where we have resided since. I now live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, yet I miss the warmth, the sea and adventure. I do love to travel, embrace new and familiar cultures and make new friends, both human and especially fur friends.
I specialize in geriatric care and special needs animals, special diets and behaviour modification. I am confident giving medicaton and setting up Veterinary visits when and where neccessary.
Merry Puppinns is a professional petsitting service, which I operate from home within my own community, far & wide. On this particular site, I can offer my services in exchange for suitable accommodation. I do keep all animals on their regular schedules, walking, grooming, meal times, bed times, etc. I further water plants, p/up mail and deal with any/all emergencies via the Vet of your choice. I have superb references and would give compassionate and dedicated care to your beloved furry children and feathered friends. Please do browse my references and inform me if you would like to contact any of them. I am devoted and committed to the care and welfare of all animals, making a difference in their lives one at a time.
Best Wishes, Merry Puppinns..."Practically Purrfect in Every Way!"
