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, starting a new job as an animal management technician (CRB certified).

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 and am the proud owner of a stray parakeet nursed back to health. My parrot has his own room so your pets will have the whole of the house with my undivided attention and care 24/7 (enclosed private fenced garden for dogs too).

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 - 40mins - 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.

It was a pleasure dealing with Matthew and I felt as if I could enjoy my holiday knowing that my cat was going to be well looked after. There was a medical emergency whilst he was sitting and he handled it brilliantly and kept me updated throughout. I recommend Matthew to my friends and family.

Went above and beyond with the kitties. Everything kept clean and the cats were very happy. Recommended!
