About Marissa

Hello, I'm a veterinary student originally from New York studying here in Edinburgh for the next three years. I have a lot of experience working with all kinds of animals both through my veterinary degree and outside of my studies.

I'm comfortable with any and all types of pets and especially love cats and dogs. I've grown up with cats and dogs my entire life and my family back home recently got a puppy that I was helping to train for the first half of the summer. I have considerable experience pet sitting and dog walking.

I'm passionate about working with animals and would really love to give your pet the best experience possible!

Marissa did a wonderful job taking care of our two rabbits for a weekend, and followed our instructions to the letter. We had to book last minute and Marissa was readily available.

Marissa was absolutely fantastic with our dogs!! She arrived perfectly on time and both of our dogs were completely at ease with her. We absolutely will be using Marissa again in the future and cannot thank her enough for being so kind to our boys and keeping them so settled and happy.
