I am a fourth-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 four amazing pet rats, Artemis, Callisto, Nyx and Kokomo, 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!
Please, notice that unfortunately, I do not own a car and my service might be limited depending on your location.
Chiara was an amazing sitter - we had her booked for 3 days and she stayed in our flat. She regularly sent updates with photos and videos, and was understanding and caring for our elderly anxious cat. Would definitely recommend and will be using Chiara’s service next time we go away!
Chiara was great with our foster girl Amber. She sent regular updates and pictures so that we knew she was in safe hands and having a blast! We will certainly be using Chiara again in the future
