About Caitriona

Hi! I'm Caitriona, I'm 24 and I'm currently in my fourth year studying Veterinary Medicine at UCD. I live in Knocklyon with my family, my dog Winnie, and my tortoise Speedy. Winnie and I love walking up in the mountains, down on the beach in Wexford and around Marlay Park! I'm a huge animal lover and currently spend most of my free time on placement for college in various vet clinics, and also enjoy volunteering with wildlife projects. I am passionate about conservation and animal welfare, and I am a real believer in positive reinforcement and treating your pets like part of the family.

I am comfortable with all types of pets. We have always had dogs in our house, and in the past have owned hamsters, budgies and fish. I encounter animals of all shapes and sizes regularly in college and on placement, and I am more than capable and happy to work and play with cats, small dogs and big dogs, including restricted breeds. I am fully up to date on the handling and husbandry of all small furries, so I'd love to look after rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, or anything you may have! I have my own pet Hermann's tortoise and have also completed an elective module on exotic animals including reptiles, birds and fish, involving practical handling classes and husbandry, so don't be afraid to ask about your weird and wonderful pets.

I have my own car, so I am happy to travel short distances. I am a full-time student but I am available in the evenings and at weekends, and during some afternoons! I am also happy to do overnight pet sitting any weekday or weekend. I will of course keep you updated about how your pet is doing, with lots of photos! Please get in touch if you have any questions!

We were so fortunate to have Caitriona looking after our beloved cat Patrick while we were on holidays.

Catriona stepped up to accept an alteration to house sit last minute notice when we were facing issues in the hospital. Her attention to our dog and home and kind heart go for miles and miles. Can't speak highly enough of her. Just incredible
