About Matthew

Hello, my name is Matthew and I am a compassionate advocate for the highest animal welfare. With a D* in animal management and almost 3 years of experience working in a veterinary referral and emergency hospital as a nursing assistant, currently employed as an animal management technician (CRB certified) caring for exotic to domestic fauna.

I have gained the practical and theoretical skills to ensure all your pets, from domestic to exotic are in the best hands! To elaborate I have over 20 CPD certificates in Health and Safety and Animal Welfare; I am competent in observing and conducting health checks, reading normal and abnormal behaviour in various species and recording and notifying you of any concerns under my supervision; via text, email or phone.

You can feel at ease that I have been trained in giving all your pets; medication, first aid and even CPR in those unlikely events. I received a commendation from my former employer for aiding in the establishment of the new exotics ward facilitating; reptiles, small mammals, avian, wildlife, exotics, and amphibians. I also used to volunteer for a local animal charity, working with rehabilitation.

I can offer you a free meet and greet prior to appointments and I am able to show you my qualifications and certificates in person. If your pet has special requirements feel free to query I'm sure I can accommodate.

Dog walks - Strictly one dog per walk (unless from the same household). - Will only take to dog-friendly areas - Will avoid other dogs and children for the safety of your pet and children. - On or off lead at owners' preference. - Towel dry included.

Really happy with the service. Daily photos and messaging were provided, so always knew that the pets were taken care of. All animals were happy and well fed when we came back, and everything was left behind clean and well locked upon our return. Can definitely recommend!
