My name is Jackie, caring for pets is my passion! I am a Registered Veterinary Technician with 20 years experience nursing in the Bay Area. Making sure your pet feels happy, safe and healthy while in my care is my misson. Island Pets is licensed with the City of Alameda and insured through Pet Sitters Associates, LLC since 2008.
All services begin with a free in-home consultation.
This is the time when we get to meet and discuss you and your pets’ needs and goals so we can set up a purrfectly personalized service.
We offer limited mid week walking services as well as once weekly hikes in our beautiful east bay hills. Walks are typically 45 minutes. Hikes are 2+ hours and dogs must be good with other dogs, good trail manners and okay with riding in cars.
Our standard in-home pet sitting service includes 20-30 minutes of love and care for your pet, including walking, enrichment, food/water replacement, litter box cleaning, and daily updates. We're also happy to water plants, bring in mail, garbage bins, adjust blinds and lights.
I have a lifetime of experience caring for my patients in a hospital setting and can assist with certain services in the home. Administering medications (oral and injectable), taking glucose reading, subcutaneous fluids, cleaning ears. In some cases I can work with your veterinarian to manage ongoing cases such as bandage, catheter and hospice care.
