Benefits of Hiring a Pet Sitter for your Elderly Parent
CONSIDER HIRING A PET SITTER FOR YOUR PARENT
Elderly pet owners may struggle to walk their dogs or administer medication. A pet sitter can provide that service on a regular basis. Some sitters have experience as veterinary technicians, so they also can administer shots or detect any health issues.
“Pets can have an enormous positive effect on the elderly. Helping individuals keep their companions well cared-for is a top priority to us,” says Lesley Lovelace, a pet sitter with Peak City Puppy
in Cary. “We get many calls from people looking for us to help care for pets, but I also think we provide peace of mind that an elderly parent or neighbor is being checked on while we’re there.”
