The first step is to meet with us. We will come to your home and meet with you and your pets. During this free 30 minute consultation we will familiarize ourselves with your pet and their individual needs. We will ask detailed questions regarding your pets’ behavior, eating habits, medication and forms of exercise. We will help you complete all of the necessary paperwork, transfer keys and tour your home. This is an excellent opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
* Subsequent consultations are available at an additional cost of $15 per visit.
