Experience with animals and own pets

I have been privileged to grow up in a house full of pets, ranging from turtles to rats to cats and dogs! Each and every pet I have has a very special place in my heart - the amount of joy they have brought to my life has inspired be so much so that it has resulted in me choosing to study veterinary science, so that I can dedicate my life to helping our furry , feathery or scaley friends.

Being away from home makes me miss by pets dearly, therefore I hope to be able to give some furry friends up here in Gauteng some of my love, affection and care when their dear owners are away.

I have worked at an SPCA and veterinary practice, therefore I have gained much experience handling many scenarios and would like to think I'm well equipped to take care of your precious pets!
