How to Help Your Pet Sitter
· Call your pet
sitter as soon as you get back home. This way I know
that you are
safe and your pets are being taken care of by you.
· Leave a well worn T-shirt with your comforting scent.
· Have plenty of
food and medications on hand.
· Purchase extra kitty litter.
· Put all pet supplies out in one area in plain sight. Leashes, bowls, treats, foods, medications, litter, cleaning supplies, broom, dustpan, vacuum, paper towels, carpet cleaner, plastic bags, watering cans, extra bedding, towels to wipe wet paws, etc.
· Clearly label medication instructions and schedule.
· Schedule interview at medication time if possible, so that the sitter can witness your routine.
· In multi-pet households, photos of each pet labeled with names and tatoo number if adopted from MHS placed in a file folder. (if available)
· Update emergency information and any changes in pet routine.
· Make sure all animals have collars have current tags.
· Have all emergency numbers (the way to reach you or a trusted friend in case of emergency, and your vet's number) written on a single sheet of paper in plain view.
· Be sure your instructions are clear and comprehensive.
