About Claire

Hello, my name is Claire, I am 25 years old and I am a registered veterinary nurse!

I have decided to pet sit as a lot of clients approach me as they need their pets medicated and are unable to find anyone to do this. I naturally care about animals and with my diploma and experience I know exactly how to care for patients. Admittedly I can't help myself but to examine every pet and keep an eye for any issues! I enjoy spending time with animals at work and it would nice to spend time with them in a less clinical environment.

I spend at least 30 minutes with your pet on my visits. As well as the basics of changing your pets food and water and possibly litter tray, I do like to spend time getting to know them. I like to do little extra bits to earn your pets trust, which can take to some time. I do this by playing, grooming, cleaning, basic training, socialising and cuddling of course. If your pet is very nervous or doesn't like strangers for example, I do not push the boundaries, I wait for them to initiate any contact. If you have any worries or concerns please contact me. I aim to offer gold standard care for all animals, whatever age or species. But with my diploma I am also able to medicate and cater for pets with extra needs.

A little bit about me, I live in central Reading and work in Wokingham full time as a veterinary nurse. I have a cat called Louie, a dog called Horatio and a tortoise called Dee Dee. I have been nursing full time for 5 years, but spent many years volunteering before this. I have been a Guide and Brownie leader for many years, which I enjoy.

Claire was amazing and we’d definitely book her again. I felt that our 2 Maine coon cats were in safe hands the whole week we were away. Claire not only fed them, but ensured they were groomed daily and sent us lots of updates. Her communication was quick and clear. She even hoovered the downstairs before we came home.
