Lyra & Guest's Pets
Hello there! I am a full time pet care taker for 5 years now. I also have past vet nursing experience and can care for pets who have a condition or need extra care. With the past years in looking after pets I have gained understanding in caring for many different types of dog and cat breeds. Ranging from the smaller breeds like chihuahuas and Maltese to larger breeds like chow chows and huskies.
What’s not to love about pets! Our dogs and cats are not only our pets but our friends.
“Until 1 has loved an animal, a part of 1’s soul remains unawakened” -Anatole France
Skills and qualificationsI had Brownie since October 2k14. He was abandoned below our block and was being mistreated by other residence. His urine was bringing bad smells to the residence. He became a frequent visitor to my home and even took the lift up. Slowly he became more familiar and we decided to keep him. Not Long after we took him in, we discovered he had kidney problems. His kidney was at stage 2-3 of renal disease. After the proper care we provided for him the past 2 years, he battled out 2k16 with fighting sprit and passed away peacefully in December. Even though his stay with us was not long, he will always be remembered for his strong perseverance and invaluable affection he gave us.
I am lucky to have met my new cat in July 2k18 and have been really happy to see him Interact with many guest pets that have stayed with us. He is friendly with both cats and dogs and always wants to be friends with them!
With Brownie, I've learned how to treat a cat with this kidney problem. I know how to administer iv solution and oral medication. Giving pets the best quality of life they can live will not only help prevention of illnesses but most importantly live a happy life!

Being a caretaker for four years has given me the confidence in handling all types of pets. I have experience with young playful puppies, senior dogs, handicap dogs with mobility issues, large dogs and aggressive or dogs with separation anxiety. After gaining vet nursing experience at a vet clinic, I am able to monitor a pet for signs of discomfort and tell when they are not well.

If your pet is on a raw or cooked diet I can help prepare their meals!
I do not drive but transportation can be arranged. I use Grab or transportation service from another caretaker.
•Owners have to take full responsibility if their pet bites or attacks other humans or pets during their stay with me. An unforeseen incident has occurred before. The dog was friendly towards both pets and humans but bit a stranger during his walk. Dogs have a protective instinct and might bite out of the blue.
•Please do not place your aggressive/anxious dog/cat in front of other pets during visitation or hand off without proper introduction. Always keep the leash on during visitation. Other pets are my responsibility too.
•Emergency contact provided has to be in Singapore at the same time the pet stays with me. In any case the owner is not contactable the emergency contact has to be reachable in the event of an accident.
•Dogs with severe separation anxiety (Howling, barking or whining non stop for hours. Accidents in the home when left alone. Destructive behavior) should seek professional corrective help. These behaviors are out of my control to rectify and take a long time to correct. People in my home need their rest and I cannot care for dogs with these extreme behaviors.

The reason I enjoy being with pets.
Caring for them brings joy. Spending time with pets on a daily basis is one of life’s greatest blessings.
