Hello, my name is Allison. I am a state licensed Veterinary Technician that has been in the field since 2003, when I received my Associate Degree in specialized veterinary science. I was born and raised in the Greater Pittsburgh area, where I also have worked in emergency and routine animal hospitals. I am a huge animal lover of all types, and have respect for all life. I have had dogs, cats, horses, fish, birds and pocket pets throughout my life. My husband and I currently have several dogs and cats of our own. We also are involved in foster, rescue and adoption work to help our four-legged friends. I truly believe that our pets, or four-legged "kids" deserve to be pampered and treated like one of the family!
I offer a more comprehensive alternative to doggie day care and boarding kennels. I allow your pets to stay in their own home and surroundings while you are away. I strive to keep them on their normal routine that keeps them comfortable and happy when you are not there to care for them. I am not just a cage, and do not just let your pets 'in and out' or just check their dishes and clean-up after them. I am very personal with each pet and spend fulfilling time with them. I also aid in decreasing the chance of picking up contagious diseases and/or infections from crowded kennels.
Being a Technician for 10 years has given me the skills to be able to give medications, injections, subcutaneous fluids, bathing, and many other beneficial services. I also take away the stress of going to the groomers or vets' office for a nail trim, ear cleaning, or anal gland expression. This works out great for our geriatric pets and also our senior owners!
My services have ranged from the mid-day visit for the working family, a monthly toenail trim for a geriatric pet who has trouble walking, to daily full services while away at the beach. I also help out with our Senior and Disabled individuals in our Pittsburgh communities.
