What kinds of pets do you look after?

Beautiful Creatures is experienced with dogs, cats, large and small birds, rabbits, guinea-pigs, rats, mice, ferrets, fish, chooks, ducks, reptiles, wildlife and the odd goat.

Will our pets like in-home pet minding?

Most adult pets prefer to stay in their own home and as long as they aren’t “naughty barkers”, suffer from separation anxiety or destroy your house during a thunderstorm, it’s an ideal pet minding solution.

Cats in particular can become quite distressed in boarding facilities and often come home with stress related issues. Either that, or they won’t talk to you for a month.

We will ask you a few questions about your pets to make sure that our service is the right one for you.

How long do you spend with our pets?

We like to spend around 20 – 30 minutes at your home during each visit. Very shy pets seem to prefer a shorter visit initially, building up to 30 minutes as they relax and get to know us.

If we feel that your pet is feeling lonely, we will spend a bit longer with them to cheer them up. With your permission, we can leave them with a chewy treat or a toy to give them something to do.

Can you look after our diabetic pet?

The short answer to this question is “yes” – however if your pet has a hypo during the day or night, we won’t know until we arrive to administer the next injection. For this reason, we do recommend that you board your pet with your vet.

How long has Beautiful Creatures been operating?

Beautiful Creatures began in 2005

I have a lot of information to tell you about my pets, so can we meet up?

After you have made your booking with Beautiful Creatures, we will make a time to call around and have a chat. During this meeting, we will record your pet’s history, all contact numbers, your pet’s eating requirements, who your vet is and any other information necessary for a worry-free holiday. (There is no charge for this.)

It’s also a wonderful opportunity for your pet to get to know us so they’ll remember us on the first visit.

What happens if my pet becomes ill?

In the event of an animal’s illness or injury, we will contact you immediately. If you are unavailable, we will assess the situation in conjunction with your nominated vet or an Emergency vet clinic.

If the situation is life threatening, we will take your pet either to your vet or the nearest emergency vet and continue to try to contact you.
