Pet Care Services
Responsible pet ownership means your pet has the best of care, even in your absence.
Do you remember what it was like to feel homesick; thrust into a strange environment with people you barely knew?
Just think how much deeper their degree of separation anxiety, not only without the people they love and trust, but also deprived of their familiar home environment around them whilst you are away.
Of course our carers cannot be you, but can offer a degree of comfort and keep, as far as possible, to your pets regular routine.
We ensure time to play ball, give individual attention and affection and meet any special dietry or medical requirements in your absence.
We have an established rapport with Ballarat Vetinary Practice, or are equally happy to consult with your animal’s own vet should the need arise.
Pets and Plants Ballarat’s Carers are insured, have current police checks and excellent references, as well as having an exceptional rapport with animals. Each of our carers works with no more than three or four client’s animals per day and the minimum time on site with your pet(s) is 30 minutes.
Let us be a friend to your “best furry friends” in your absence.
Our carers will follow your care routines for watering your plants.
Unlike some in home pet care providers, we do not condemn the often dedicated and excellent care of boarding kennels. Some dogs cope well with the experience and they may be a good alternative for you. However, if you do have a pet that frets, is unusual, elderly, or just likes to be a bit
pampered, we are able to give them a degree of individual attention and time, that many boarding kennels just can’t match.
As devoted animal and plant carers we also care for people in our employ and those we serve:
Our rates are affordable and take into account a minimum of a half an hour spent with your pets and plants daily, as well as travel times involved in reaching your home.
We have an introductory informal in home meeting with the client and their pets to establish both the pet’s routines and establish animal/carer
compatibility and trust. If one of these elements is missing, Pets and Plants Ballarat cannot ensure either the safety of the carer, nor the continued quality of care for your pet, then we will advise you accordingly, soon after or during this meeting. For this reason, ensure you contact us early in your travel planning.
Amongst our carers, experience includes:
Need to transport your pet to a veterinary appointment, grooming salon or special occasion? Our pet taxi service can provide a safe comfortable ride to your pet's required destination.
