Animals at Home South Essex is one of many business within a recognised nationwide organisation.
This is run as a family business and we have been serving our local communities for 4 years. We pride ourselves in delivering a bespoke care/support package for your precious pets to ensure that you have peace of mind whilst you are away and that they have a wonderful experience. All of our assessments are person and pet centred ensuring that your pet’s lifestyle is maintained and delivered throughout their time spent within our care. We are privileged to undertake this on your behalf and all pets are treated with respect and loved as if they were our own.
Lavinia and Carol have worked within the Social Care arena for a great number of years and have built a wealth of life experiences with many diverse people and their animals. We have undertaken nutritional training with Purina and spent valuable time with Riverbank Veterinary Hospital (Isle of Wright), where we experienced handling various animals, administering medication orally and by injection and shadowing the vet’s procedures and consultations. We are constantly updating our knowledge by attending relevant training courses and seminars.
We provide a much needed ambulance service, where we transport animals that may have life threatening illnesses, have encountered trauma through accidents or require specialist consultation to different veterinary hospitals throughout the country.We also transport animals after operations or major surgeries to a 24 hour veterinary facility for further ongoing care. Through this practice we support many vets within the vicinity we are continually learning and updating our skills and knowledge within emergency care.
We offer support and advice on the sad occasion when it’s time to say goodbye to your beloved animal. We offer a guaranteed individual cremation service, providing much empathy and sympathy during this time.
We have host families to care for your pet whilst you are on holiday or away on business where we will assess and match your pet to the most suitable family, knowing all your pet’s needs will be met.
We offer all these services 24 hours a day 365 days of the year.
We share much love and companionship with our own menagerie of pets who give us great enjoyment.
