About Chiara

*Please note: from May 2022, as part of my final year program, I will be required to work normal shifts during the week. I will still be available for most weekends and some visits. Also, unfortunately, I do not own a car and my service might be limited depending on your location. Please, send me a message if you would like more information, thank you*

I am a final year Veterinary Medicine student from Italy with a big passion for animals.

I graduated in Animal Science in 2017 from Kansas State University and then moved to Glasgow to study Veterinary Medicine. I have previously worked in a small animal clinic for two years in the US and done a veterinary internship with dairy cattle in Italy. Besides dogs and cats, I have also learned how to take care of exotic animals, in fact, I have volunteered and worked in two zoos in the US and in Ireland. During my Veterinary Medicine course, I have been gaining more and more clinical experience with dogs, cats, and exotic species.

I currently live in the Anniesland area, sharing a flat with my boyfriend. We have nine amazing pet rats (Artemis, Callisto, Nyx, Kokomo, Rosemary, Ivy, Clover, Juniper, and Clementine) that keep me company during studying, and a cuddly three-legged dog named Cindy. Since Cindy is a rescue, she is lovely with people but can be grumpy with other dogs during their first meeting. I have been training and socializing her and now she does much better. She has successfully made friendships with the past dogs I have taken care of and truly enjoys sleeping and playing with her buddies. Basically, Cindy is my little petsitting helper.   

I have been pet sitting for more than 5 years and I truly enjoy meeting new people, especially if they share my same love for animals. I love taking care of any critter, no matter if they are furry or scaly, making sure they stay happy and healthy. I will try to work around my school schedule and free time, so please, ask me what service you would like to have and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Chiara was great, she sent us lovely pictures of our bunny and updates while we were away, to put our mind at ease. We came back to a happy bunny, we would be more than happy for her to look after our pet again!
