Kristine’s Bio

I began as a vet assistant at the R.I. Animal Hospital. Working under the supervision of Dr.'s Tadlock and Foster I received vet technician training. My training included, but was not limited to, assisting in surgeries, exams, performing basic diagnostic testing, giving vaccinations, taking blood, feces and urine samples for testing and providing post-op care.
I have worked with all types of canines and felines. I was trained by Invisible Fences in basic obedience instruction. I have worked with animals for over 20 years and can provide excellent references. Services I provide are walking, all types of play and exercise, trimming nails, bathing, brushing, cleaning teeth, feedings, administering medications and performing glucose tests and presenting games that promote trust and cognitive challenges for your pet. Additional services can include household tasks and any special needs required for your pet.
I have a Bachelor's in Social Work. I love working with, and helping, people but animals are, and always have been, my passion. As my clients will tell you, I treat your pet as if he or she were my own. My current and past clients will tell you I am compassionate, an extreme animal lover and I exceed expectations.
Research is clear that animals feel more confidence and less anxiety and sress when allowed to remain in their own environments. There are excellant kennels in the Quad City area however, even the highest quality kennel can exacerbate an animal's stress level simply by being placed in an environment that includes unfamiliar sounds, smells, unfamiliar routines and other potentially stressful factors during your absence.
Our pets are family and when you travel, vacation, leave for special events, holidays or emergencies I come to you ensuring your pet is able to remain in comfotably at home. I provide loving and professional care so you can travel with peace of mind and the anxiety your pet feels during your absence is reduced and, at times, even eliminated.
My rates are competitive and reasonable. I work with you to negotiate a rate that is affordable and meets the expectations of the job. My average distance of travel is 25-35 miles. However, again, I work with you and am willing to discuss expanding my base of service.
I would love to work with you and your four legged family member (s). I look forward to hearing from you and together creating a trusting and mutually beneficial partnership.
Sincerely,
Kristine Skinner
