About Chiara

I am a third-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 am trying to do as many placements as I can to gain more clinical skills with dogs, cats, and exotic species.

I currently live in the Anniesland area, sharing a flat with my boyfriend. We have three amazing pet rats, Temaki, Teriyaki, and Tobiko, which 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 difficult with other dogs during their first meeting. I have been trying to train and socialize her and now she does better. She has successfully made new friends with the past dogs I have taken care of, so I decided to still offer the Doggy Day Care service. Please, do not hesitate to ask me questions regarding Cindy and the service; I will be more than happy to answer.

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 am available for up to 1-hour walks and home visits (once or twice a day). Walks are included in the home visits service. 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!
