Carey Pet FAQ

FAQs

What are the benefits of using Carey Pet & Home Care?

Carey Pet recognizes that each Client—and pet—has his or her own specific requirements. We tailor our Recurring Services visits according to your preferences and your pet’s needs. We can create a series of visits to suit your needs. Whether it is for long nights when you’re stuck at the office or you must be AT work at 7:00 am and cannot take your dog to daycare, you will be able to relax knowing that your pet is in caring and capable hands.

Can I have confidence that Carey Pet will take great care of my pets?

Absolutely! Our Sitters are subjected to extensive screening prior to joining our team. Our Sitter screening process includes requiring previous pet-related care experience, in-depth interviewing, and completing a thorough background check including criminal, credit, motor vehicle and sex offender registry. All Sitters are bonded and insured covered by Carey Pet. Your personal information and details about your pets and home always remain confidential. House keys are coded anonymously. None of our vehicles have company advertising which prevents people from knowing you are not at home. Our Sitters have extensive experience with a variety of alarm systems ensuring your home is always left secure according to your instructions.

If your pets have any special needs and you are concerned about whether we can accommodate them, please contact us directly to discuss.

What happens if my pet becomes ill?

In case of an emergency, we will contact you to let you know what happened and that we will take your pet to your veterinarian. If we are not able to reach you, we will follow the instructions you gave us on the Veterinary Treatment/Authorization Form completed at the Registration Visit. In case of an after-hours emergency and cannot reach you, we will take your pet to the nearest after-hours veterinary hospital, while continuing to try to reach you or your emergency contact person. Our Pet Sitter will remain with your pet until you are reached, and proper action is taken.
