- If your pet is on medication, leave detailed instructions on its use, even if you tell your pet sitter verbally how it's administered.
- Any quirks that your dogs may have
- Name and number of your vet
- Your cell phone numbers, or a number for an alternate emergency contact person
- Letter of permission with the pet sitter, allowing them to seek veterinary care
- Notify the vets of when we were out of town, who was watching the dogs
- Even if dropping off food, type of food and favorite treats
The dogs are:
- Hannah: chocolate lab (14 yo)
- Emma: golden retriever (6 yo)
I also listed information about talking the dogs for a walk. For example, Hannah has a limited range and both girls know how to walk nicely on a leash, heel, etc. Don't let them tell you otherwise.
Even though food is being left, list name and amount of food "just in case."
Medications and supplements
Hannah has an extensive medication list. I included that in a separate section.
- DH and me
- a local emergency contact
- our vet
