About Abby

Hi there, my name is Abby and I am a third year veterinary student at the University of Glasgow. I've had animals all of my life, ranging from dogs, reptiles, fish, pigs, chickens, rabbits, and even frogs! I have a passion for exotic animals and plan to pursue a career in exotic medicine, so all of your scaley, feathery, and furry friends are safe with me! I have a flexible schedule with lots of time in between labs and classes. I live close to Dawsholm Park and my buildling has a large fenced garden with plenty of room to run too. I'm located near the Anniesland train station, so getting to you and your pets is a breeze! A typical day for me is 3 hours of university class at the vet school which is a mere 10 minute walk from me. After that, I generally have a 2 hour lunch break so plenty of time to come back to my flat to check on your pets. If I don't have a lab that afternoon, then my day is done and I'm free to watch your pet the rest of the day! The longest my labs can possibly run is 3 hours, so at most your pet is only going 3 hours without supervision. For dog walking, it can be up to 30 minutes and 3 times a day if I am coming to you and your pet. If they board with me, it’s 4 a day with shorter potty breaks in between. Your pet can stay in their own bedroom or mine or the living room, whichever you prefer. The gate to my garden has a 2 meter fence around it and a lock on the door to ensure pet security. If need be, I can even bathe your dog for you before they return to you! Under my watchful eye, your pet's medical needs will never go unnoticed and I can even give medication and provide special care if need be. I live alone in a 2 bedroom flat, so your pet can even have their own room. I currently have a springer spaniel I am fostering, he loves other dogs and does great with them! He’s getting the snip soon so females can be around him without an issue. I love all shapes, sizes, sexes, breeds, and species, no limitations at all. Please don't hesitate to ask anymore questions!

Hi Abby

Thanks so much for taking such good care of Julie while she was with you and for the photos and updates you sent to me. I am sure she made herself quite at home with you. It was good to know that I didn't have to worry about her for the 5 days that you had her. If I ever need her to be looked after again I would certainly like her to go to you. Thanks again

Abby took great care of my boy (cat) and sent regular photos whilst I was away. Would definitely ask for her help again!
