Pet Sitter Wanted - Currently Searching For A Qualified Special Needs Rabbit Sitter

Company: PetSitter

Job Description:


I'm currently searching for a sitter for our rabbit, Milo. He's about 3.5kg, so a medium-small size - and he has head tilt. We've gone through the worst of it and worked to get him ambulatory again. While his head can appear quite jarring at first, he's quite content and still very happy about treats! Rubs... well, he wasn't very social before all of it, but he's come along well in the past few months.

We would need someone familiar with small mammals/exotics. He currently requires medication for each visit, but with the tilt, cannot be picked up for administration. The stress of being picked up just gets him rolling again and he's a hot mess for a day or so after (he despised being picked before all of this, which has added a... fun... layer to all of the treatments). We do have a fairly sound system for getting him comfortably medicated, but I'm always open to input and advice! Worth noting, he's not a biter or a boxer. Yes, he has teeth, so there's a risk, but I've yet to feel the ivory death of the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog in our five years together.

As he does require medical care, we are only looking for vet techs and the like who have hands-on experience with rabbit care. Should you be a good fit, there may be future needs such as administering critical care or subcutaneous fluids while sitting.

Veggies will be provided, pre-bagged, and ready to put out for each visit. Anticipate 2 visits each day, morning and night, but we are flexible on the hours (free 9a and 9p? - great!; 6a and 10p? - still works!). Written instructions will be made available. We would also like a text update with picture(s) for each visit. On average, our previous sitter was in and out within ten minutes (got married and moved away, but they were lovely kids!).

Thank you, and have an excellent day!
