How Important is Pet Insurance?

It seems hard to imagine that we as pet owners consider our four-legged friends to be valued members of our family and yet only 1% of us carry health insurance on our loved ones.  There are barely one million pets in this country that are covered by insurance out of 170 million!  We all admit that their lives are precious to us and yet we may lose them before their time has come simply because we cannot afford decent veterinary care.

Exercise your due diligence and research pet insurance on the internet.  You will find many different providers to fit your specific family needs.  Of course, you will factor in the ages of your pets and their overall health.  If you have a new addition to the family consider how long you want them to have a long and healthy life and factor in that value into the equation.

Critter Sitters serving Aurora IL and all of the Fox Valley wants you to know all of the options.  If we treat our pets like 4-legged children it might merit strong consideration.  Whenever you need short or long-term pet sitting in the Fox Valley please call Sandy at (630) 844-9554 or visit her website to read more about her services at www.alltopcrittersitters.com.

Pets with Special Needs

Pet sitting is not a job as much as it is a calling.  When you take on the responsibility of baby-sitting someone’s four-legged child you are the person most responsible for its health and safety while the owner is away.  Sometimes that means a great deal more than feeding, watering, and playing.  The right pet sitter is qualified to do much more.

Sandy Hafenbrack of Critter Sitters in Montgomery, IL serves the Fox Valley everyday and is equipped to help your pet if it has special needs.  Maybe age, illness, or disease has slowed them down a bit, but you can’t quit your job to care for them full time.  Sandy is experienced in administering insulin shots, subcutaneous fluids, and other medications to your sick and aging beloved member of the family.

You see, being a caring, loving sitter of your pet really is a calling.  If you have a pet that has special needs and you live in the Fox Valley area, please call Sandy today at (630) 844-9554.  Additionally, if you have that same calling that Sandy does and you live in the Aurora/Yorkville area give her a call to see if you might be just the right fit to join her caring team.
