Q.My cat won't eat store bought food. I always make her meals. Can you do that?
A. Absolutely! You simply need to give me the raw ingredients, your secret recipe for her meals and we are happy to whip them up for her. Made to order meals are one of our specialties.
Q.My dog really needs his exercise. Dog walking might not be enough. Can you do "dog running"?
A. No problem. We give stately strolls for the senior citizens, rollicking romps for the rambunctious! How far and how fast and how long does he want to go?We can keep up!
Q.I have Guinea Pigs. Can you take care of them for me?
A. Yes, of course. Those cute fur balls need love, clean cages, fresh water and food every day, too. Don't worry…the $5 for an extra animal doesn't countwith Guinea Pigs!
