About Simona

Hi! I’m Simona, a 24 year old 3rd year veterinary medicine student living in Guildford! As you can probably imagine I have always loved animals and have constantly had pets all throughout my life. Growing up I had a black Labrador x German Shepherd called Sophie who we had from when I was 5 up until I was 16 (check out the cute pic of me and her from when I was a kid!). I currently have an 8 year old lionhead rabbit called Nala and a 9 year old rescue black cat called Chuck who both also feature in my photos. My housemates also have 2 Guinea pigs and 2 rats so we have a very busy household!

Throughout my degree I’ve gained lots of handling experience with all sorts of animals including dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents, reptiles and birds so I’m super comfortable with feeding, cuddling, playing with, cleaning out and walking pretty much any pet you could imagine!

I’ve also done several clinical placements during my degree and so if necessary I am comfortable and able to administer medications, injections and basic first aid to your pet, I am also happy to care for any pets that may have more complex needs through disability or disease.

My services:

- Dog walking (happy to walk for as long and as often as your dog is used to!)

- House visits (feeding, company, cuddling, cleaning out, letting outside, grooming, playing with, even happy to water the plants etc. if needed!)

- Medication administration (happy to give injections, topical or oral medication your pet needs and / or perform any other necessary tasks your pet may need medically)

- House sitting (I’m happy to stay at your home while you’re away to look after your pet and would be happy to walk, feed, play with, cuddle, groom, administer medications etc. and will ensure the house is also kept in good condition i.e. water the plants and leave the house as clean as when I arrived! Staying at your house in your pets most comfortable environment will minimise the stress they’re under and allows me to keep them to their normal routine.)

- All these services are priced for your dog but I’m happy to also care for your cats, rodents, rabbits, reptiles and birds for discounted rates!

Let me know if your pet has any special needs or medication beforehand so I know if I need to do anything differently than I usually would. This includes if your dog may be reactive to other pets or people or if they need to wear a muzzle or harness when in public.

If house sitting / visiting then please let me know your usual daily routine so I can replicate this as closely as possible for your pet to help them feel more comfortable while you’re away!

House Sitting
Martin, 2024-07-13

Simona was a great house sitter and clearly loves dogs. It is always a bit scary to leave your home and especially your dogs in the care of others but Simona was brilliant. Kept me informed on everything.

Then to top it off my flight back was delayed by 2 days (good old BA) and even thought the booking was over I asked Simona if she could head back to my home as spend an extra night whilst I sorted things out. She readily agreed and I dont know what I would have done otherwise. Crisis averted. Thanks so much for this and for caring for my two boys.
