Outstanding Dog Walking Services that Our Clients Boast About

Lucy's Pet CareDogs are man’s best friends for many reasons, some being that they are loyal and always happy to see you.

If you’re a dog lover, you know that they deserve the best care possible, and that’s where our dog walking team comes to rescue.

As an experienced dog walker Durham people rely on, we will ensure your pup gets the exercise they need to stay healthy and happy.

Dogs are popular pets for a variety of reasons, but before you decide to add one to your family, it’s important to understand how to take care of them. Dogs need exercise, plenty of fresh water, and proper nutrition. In addition, they require regular veterinary care and vaccinations. When choosing a dog, consider your lifestyle and the amount of time you have to devote to taking care of it. If you work long hours, for example, a high-energy breed, like a Labrador Retriever, may not be the best fit. There are many breeds of dogs that are well suited for apartment living, including the miniature Schnauzer and the Brussels Griffon.

If you already have a pet at home, make sure to introduce the new dog slowly and carefully. Some dogs may get along great with other pets, while others may not be so compatible, which is why it’s so important to keep an eye on their interactions and
intervene if necessary. If you’re looking for a reliable puppy sitting service in Durham, look no further than Lucy’s Pet Care!

Finches are another popular type of bird that we can look after. These small birds are known for their beautiful colors, and they require a lot of attention to detail. Canaries are also popular pet birds and are known for their cheerful singing voices.

Birds require a diet that is high in protein and calcium so you can provide your bird with a diet that consists of birdseed, fresh fruits and vegetables, and cooked meat. It is important to avoid giving your bird too many sugary foods, as this can lead to health problems.

Professional Fish Care Services You Can Count On

Fish Sitting DurhamFish require more care than many people know. Most fish can be kept in a fish tank with some simple care. A fish tank should be thoroughly cleaned at least once a week with a gravel vacuum, which can be used to clean the tank and remove any waste or food that has been missed. The water should also be changed every week, using a de-chlorinator to remove any chlorine or
chloramines from the water. A filter is also important for keeping a fish tank clean because it helps to circulate the water and remove any waste or debris. It is important to change the filter media regularly to make sure it always functions properly.

Fish also need a source of light, but it is important not to place the tank in direct sunlight. The light can be provided by a standard fluorescent light bulb or an LED light. Fish also need a source of heat to maintain a consistent temperature in the tank. The ideal temperature for most fish is between 72 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit. Our fish care experts understand the steps that need to be taken to ensure your pets are healthy. With our fish care experts, you do not have to worry about the wrong diet being provided or your fish suffering any kind of neglect.

Expert Rabbit Sitting

Bunny Sitting Durham

Rabbits are popular pets and there are several things to consider before you decide to get one. Rabbits need a lot of space and should have a hutch that is at least six feet long and two feet wide. They also need a litter box and regular access to fresh hay and vegetables. Rabbits can be trained, but they can also be very messy, therefore, it is important to clean their hutch regularly and change the bedding often. Rabbits need plenty of exercise and should be allowed to run around outside of the hutch for at least an hour each day.
