Pet Sitting

Pet sitting in the Salem Area

We are excited to announce that we are adding pet sitting to our services! For some time we have wanted to offer respite and medically intensive, veterinary supervised pet sitting services. We have finally found the perfect person to offer these services. Matt comes to us with years of pet care experience. He is kind and soft spoken which makes him instantly popular with even shy pets. Matt is available for regular pet sitting as well as pet sitting special needs pets, or pets with sensitive medical conditions. Because he is associated with us, he has access to veterinary advice when needed and we can even see your pet in case of urgent needs, or he can take your pet to your preferred veterinarian. He can also handle many types of medications that may be required, and has trained back up should the need arise.

There is no need for you to be a client of our practice to use our pet sitting services.

Pet sitter Matt V.

Growing up my family and I rescued all of our pets, both cats and dogs alike. Stray or feral I’ve learned from first hand experience the patience required to earn an animal’s trust. I have an intuitive understanding of dog/cat psychology from being around them. More than anything else I love bonding with a new furry friend and learning all the quirks that will come from their unique personalities.

I love to play, and will tire your dog out if necessary, I will walk them as frequently as you want. I’ll also cat-sit, and I might actually be better with cats than dogs! I offer care for all domestic pets including, but not limited to, cats, dogs, Guinea pigs. hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, turtles, fish, birds, and farm animals.

Make sure to tell me about their diet plan, otherwise I’ll likely spoil them with treats.
