I Love All Animals
For several years I have been pet sitting and walking, exercising, and training dogs for several area households and friends. This can include responsibilities of grooming, feeding, administering meds, regularly reporting to owners on vacation, etc. I really enjoy this opportunity of interacting with so many different pets and having the responsibility for their care.
At my positions at East Ridge Animal Hospital and Suburban Animal Hospital, I assisted with everything from taking vital signs, administering vaccines and medications, doing health history checkups, to handling animals, plus care, feeding, bathing, walking, customer service, and cleaning duties.
I am very familiar with many animals and quickly notice behavioral anomalies and illness. During college I took the animal-assisted therapy class where I learned everything from behavioral indicators of animal stress and how to correctly respond to them.
