We are happy to consider visiting any type of animal, providing you feel confident that you can detail all of your pet’s requirements.

Basically the meeting is for you to meet us and for us to meet your pet.

We like to run through the routine you would like us to follow during the visits, just to make sure there is nothing unusual that we might not have done before.

We will also explain about the information you will need to provide us with if you wish to book with us.

You don’t have to decide there and then about making a booking,as we will hold your visit dates for 24hrs after the meeting.

We do not share your information with any third parties.

We are happy to administer medication to your pet providing you can give suitable directions and your pet is happy to oblige.

We always keep your key until you notify us that you are home.
This way, if you are delayed, we can arrange additional visits at your request.
Any such additional visits will be charged at the same rate as the original agreement.

If you return early, you need to let us know so that we can cancel any outstanding visits.
By doing this you will avoid having to pay for unnecessary visits.
If you forget to inform us that you are home and we arrive for a visit, then you will still be charged for this visit, but we will cancel any further outstanding visits.

We do operate a free, fully insured key holding scheme.
This helps us as it saves us having to arrange to collect keys from you in the future and additionally benefits you, in the event that you ever lose your own keys.
Participation also means that you will not incur any key collect / return charges.

Your keys are coded without any address information on them and stored in a non-mobile safe.

Please contact us about availability and prices.

When we carry out an initial meeting we will complete a Visit Information Form which details your pet’s routine along with vet details and emergency contact information etc.

Any such emergencies would be treated in the same way as we would in our own home, by trying to prevent further damage.
Following this, we will notify you of the problem.

We always ask that sufficient food is left for the duration of the visits.
However, should there be a problem we would of course buy more food and provide you with a receipt for reimbursement at the end of the visits.
