About Carla

*Please note I work during the day so cannot accept bookings for this time period. Any questions please get in touch*

Hi, my name is Carla and I am a veterinary nursing student. As a student, I don't have the oppurtunity to have my own pets at my flat, so I love going back home to see my pets. Having an oppurtunity where I can meet new people and see their love for their own pets and the special bond they have is amazing, and one of the resons why I wanted to become a vet nurse.

Despite seeing animals all day everyday, it still doesn't disuade me from doing this job!

Why am I different? Well i'm very approachable and easy to talk to. I always have my patient's care at the forefront of my mind, and i'm hoping that once you meet me, you will see that your pets will be in safe hands. Having pets myself I appreciate how hard it is to leave them in someone else's care, however I strive to ensure you are happy to relax away from home.

I have worked for 3 years in a veterinary practice caring for the patients that come in to see us from routine procedures to emergency care. This year I will be starting clincal rotations at Langford Refferal hospital. I am very confident at ensuring my patients are comfy and get the TLC they deserve. Having this experience means I am built for this job, and can even administer any medication your pets may need.

In my services I offer home visits which include a minimum 30 minute drop in (depending on number of pets) to feed the pets, let them outside and give them lots of TLC. I also offer dog walks around your local area with different lengths of time based on your pets size, needs and any medical conditions they may have; but I will be sure to gauge what you do with them as well. The times of the walk can range from 30 minutes to an hour. Lastly I offer house sitting in which I will stay at your house to be closer to your pets if you feel they suffer from separation anxiety or just want them to stick to their normal routine. My price is lower then most as I can not always be there 24/7 due to work at the hospital during the week, but will be there all other times when I’m not at work.

I hope I’ve been able to give you enough information for you to see whether I’m the match for you and your pet(s). But if you have any more questions, or want to see how I get on with the pets, then leave me a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can! I offer a free first visit to understand all your beloved pet’s needs before you leave them with me. So if you feel I’d be a match for you and your pet, then don’t hesitate to message and I look forward to meeting you.

I am studying to be a veterinary nurse at the University of Bristol. I have always loved caring and looking after animals from a young age and am so happy to be able to do my dream job. I have worked for 2 years at a verterinary practice caring for the patients that come in to see us from routine procedures to emergency care. This year I will be starting clincal rotations at Langford Refferal hospital. I am very confident at ensuring my patients are comfy and get the TLC they deserve. Having this experience means I am built for this job, and can even administer any medication your pets may need. I will not only have my dog sitter eyes on them, but also my nurse ones.
