Anyone here ever found a pet sitter qualified to inject? I leave my cats at home when I go for my annual week away but this will be the first time I'll have to have someone in to inject. I can't find a neighbour or family member who can do it so I thought maybe a pet sitter. Otherwise, she'd have to board at the vets' which she won't like at all!

Does she bite? lol...

Ask at your vet's office. Some techs moonlight as house sitters.

I know, I did and still do, I regret it it sometimes but that's another story.

Yes, there is a tech at our vet who petsits for a friend who has cats with health problems. I would ask!:)

Hey!

Not sure if I can put this here but here goes. I am capable of pet-sitting and injecting. I have taken care of two diabetic cats multiple times. The vet's office is where I learned how to give the injection. I will also be pet first aid certified in a couple of weeks. Of course, this depends entirely upon where you are! If you want to discuss this further, e-mail me at skating@yorku.ca

I suppose it all depends where o.p lives! ;)

I'm sure someone can give recommendations if you state the city you're in.
