My name is Lauren Sweeney & I am currently a student at the University of Bristol studying Bioveterinary Science & Veterinary Nursing.
Through training as a Veterinary nurse I have learnt the best ways to care for our beloved animals, aiming to build trust with the animal and minimise fear and anxiety. This is something I take very strongly as it can be stressful for a pet to be left by themself, and as your pet sitter I will do my best to keep your animal as comfortable and happy as possible.
In my opinion, one of the best ways to keep your pets happy when you are away is to mimic the routine you follow at home with them. To get a better understanding of your pets day to day life, I offer a free meet up with you before the stay/visits, so that you can inform me of all relevant information and I can tailor my visits to suit your pets needs. As I am currently working full time in a Veterinary Hospital, I would only be avaliable to visit your pets early in the morning & then again throughout the evening during the week. However, I am flexible over the weekend to visit your pets as you desire.
I feel comfortable caring for many types of pets, including but not restricted to: cats, dogs, small furries and many exotics. I have also had two of my own rabbits as pets so I am aware of the different type of husbandry required for small exotics.
As a student Veterinary nurse, I would also be able to administer any medications your pet requires, follow a diet plan if your pet is on one, perform CPR & administer insulin for your diabetic pets. I understand how difficult it can be to leave your pets in the care of another individual, so hopefully I can put your mind at ease due to my current training.
I can be flexible where possible & will always try to accomodate special requests where possible.
Please don't hesistate to message me if you have any questions :)
Lauren was fantastic - quick to respond and reliable. Made going away on short notice that much less stressful!
I had last minute business in Europe and luckily found Lauren on Pawshake who was able to help my little fluffy boy. I did not have time to formally meet Lauren because of my timings. We organised a key pickup. I arrived home to a very happy chap of a cat. Brushed, fed and cuddled.
Thanks Lauren for being so flexible with my timings and lovely to the dude 😊
