About Gemma

My name is Gemma Cockram, I am based in Shinfield, Reading and I am a Veterinarian! I have recently graduated and despite having pets all my life I don't currently have one of my own! I have lots of experience looking after many different types of animals including dogs, cats, birds, and small mammals. I am also able to administer medications if your pet requires any!

I also have previous experience with pet sitting as a part time job during high school. In addition I have worked at a doggy daycare in the past and have plenty of experience with dog walking and feeding etc. I have seen many different types of feeding so don't worry if you think your routine is complicated! I can also bath dogs but am not a dog groomer, however I can certainly clip nails and give baths.

I take great joy in looking after other people's furry friends while they are away to ensure they can leave them behind worry free! I will send you lots of pictures so you can see just how your pet is doing. I aim to spend half an hour to 45 minutes at each home visit but will adjust for your pet's needs! I am able to offer multiple house visits a day and can stay at your house too if need be. Throughout my life I have owned 5 cats and 1 dog as well as a rabbit and guinea pig! I look forward to meeting you and your pets.

It was great to know that our cats were in good hands when we left them with Gemma. They were able to stay in their own home and didn't have to go through the trauma of going to a cattery.

The cats were very content with Gemma and she followed our instructions on how to make things more comfortable for them, which we were very happy about. She even went the extra mile and hoovered up when they flicked their litter over the floor.

Gemma is professional, and dedicated to animals and her profession, and is a very pleasant young lady who is very easy to get on with. We cannot recommend her enough. She will definitely be our go-to sitter when we next travel.

Thank you Gemma, you are a star!

We were absolutely delighted with Gemma. Our very nervous ragdoll was utterly content and, we think, rather sorry to see her go. Bunty has a special diet and medication and Gemma dealt with both perfectly.
