About Raphaella

My name is Raphaella, I am an energetic and confident qualified vet nurse based in western sydney. I currently work on a full time basis at a local clinic and enjoy every single part of my day. I am happy to help whenever possible :).

Other than working with the fur babies, I have also owned and loved them my entire life. I currently own three fur babies, a rescued smooth haired dachshund named 'Biscuit', a ginger DSH cat named ' Popcorn and a DSH tuxedo black and white princess named 'Oreo'.

They're all a part of my loving family and get nothing but the best care and treatment. I strongly believe that they're special parts of our lives and need to be taken care of and loved very muchly. I offer house sitting as explained above as I do live in an apartment and prefer to have your family member remain in their comfort zones at home. Whilst staying, I offer nail trims and administering medication. I am happy to walk any sized animals and am very happy to cuddle them too.I am excited to offer my help and get to know your fur babies.

I do have a drivers license so I am able to drive to any area surrounding mine but unfortunately don't offer services to anything further than a 10km radius from Granville. Wags and Purs xoxo

Raphaella treated our girls with so much love and care that I think they would be happy for her to stay full time. It was our first time away from them and they have quite a few health issues, but knowing how they interacted with Raphaella before we went put our minds at ease. Raphaella kept us up to date with many photos, videos and messages while away. Raphaella was so respectful with our girls and us that we felt extremely comfortable having her in our home. We thought with our girls having separation anxiety that they would be a little stressed when we got home, but Raphaella spoilt them so much with love and kept their routines that upon our return it was like we’d only been out for the day. We would highly recommend Raphaella to house sit and enjoy your vacation and we would be definitely be asking her to watch our girls again. (Just a bit worried that if we recommend her to too many people that she won’t be available next time we need her!)

Raphaella was amazing looking after our dog Bowie who is recovering from a broken leg. She went above and beyond in taking care of him, sending us plenty of photos and videos to keep us updated. I honestly can't recommend her highly enough.
