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.
