About Denise

Hi I am a retired veterinarian and zoologist. I have been working with the red cross for the past 7 years, before that I ran a pop-up vet clinic out of a pet superstore selling veterinary products.

Earlier in my career I dealt with a lot of SPCA cases and also police dog work. I have completed a nightclass in animal homeopathy.

I enjoy horse riding and gardening. I have enjoyed showing horses and dogs in competitions also over the years winning many rosettes and ribbons.

Recently our family has enjoyed success showing guinea pigs.

One of our favourite guinea pigs is a rescue animal who was found abandoned on the side of a country road in a box!

We have a great pet family at our home including fish, birds, guinea pigs, a cat and a dog.

My husband of 21 years is a busy veterinarian here in Tauranga, whom has a special interest in unusual and exotic pets including rabbits , rodents, birds and reptiles.

My family is passionate about nature, wildlife and conservation and enjoy the outdoors.

We have a large bird aviary with budgies, gouldian finches, fire finches and bourkes parakeets.

I am available for small dog walking, home visits to feed all types of pets and boarding for small mammals, reptiles and smaller to medium sized quiet birds.

Denise was absolutely wonderful. She had great communication with us and provided feedback as necessary. Denise was always at our home at the specified times and treated our pets as if they were her own. Denise administered medication daily as requested. Both our little dog Maggie & our cat Joe quite obviously felt calm and at ease with Denise and she certainly won their hearts and related to them beautifully. We cannot recommend Denise highly enough and will certainly be using her services in the future.

Denise was great to deal with, was happy to accommodate our preferences and went beyond taking care for our pets by helping bring the recycling bins back to the house while we were away. We would recommend her any time as a pet sitter.
