- Dr. vet. med. Verena Spörri, Schlüsselstrasse 35, 5330 Zurzach, 056 269 60 90
I have no reservations in recommending Dr. Spörri to anymore. She is a wonderful vet whom I'm lucky to have found through the recommendation of a friend who lives in Zurzach. She keeps on top of recent developments, and is open to new treatments and methods. She is good at explaining what's wrong with the pet, and answers all questions. Fluent in English. Extremely reasonable rates. [zc]
- Dr. med. vet. René Unternährer, Zürcherstrasse 29, 8852 Altendorf (Steuerparadies SZ), +41 55 462 1600
Both vets in the practice speak excellent English, have good interpersonal skills and look after my puppies. They also think that my prime examples of American Staffordshire Terrier are a credit to the breed and think that the proposal to ban breeds is retarded. Hoorah!

Comments from a few of our customers
ich möchte mich nochmals ganz herzlich bei dir für denbesuch bei paco bedanken. es war unbeschreiblich schön ihn wieder zu sehen :-). ich freue mich sehr das er eine so gute mami gefunden hat, ich könnte mir keinen besseren platz für ihn vorstellen. ich hoffe wir bleiben in guten kontakt und sehen uns bald wieder. nochmals herzlichen dank das wir kommen durften, ihr habt ein wunderschönes paradies für jeden hund bei euch :-))
ganz liebe grüsse .......... Liebe Agata,
endlich komme ich dazu Dir und deinem Team meinen Dank auszudrücken.
Als ich Cassie von Dir abholte war sie so fröhlich und entspannt. Sie legte sich auf´s Sofa, wo sie eigentlich nicht liegen sollte, und schnarchte wie eine Wilde dabei bewegte sie ihr Pfoten und wedelte sogar mit dem Schwanz. Das war so lustig anzuschauen und zu wissen, dass der Hund sogar im Schlaf vom "Hundeabenteuerland" träumt, na das ist doch was oder?
Wie auch immer, ich weiss nun wo ich Cassie immer dann mit bestem Gewissen unterbringen kann, wenn ich auf Geschäftsreisen bin. In der Vergangenheit hatten Freunde sich liebevoll um sie gekümmert. Aber das stellte sich manchmal als schwieriger heraus als zuvor erwartet.
Ich hatte dann schon ein schlechtes Gewissen meinem Hund und meinen Freunden gegenüber.
Das alles hat nun ein gutes Ende gefunden, da ich in der Zukunft meine Cassie zu Dir bringen werde und mit gutem Gefühl meine Geschäftsreisen antreten kann.
Recht herzlichen Dank für Euren hervorragenden Dienst. Euer Team ist mit ganzem Herzen dabei. Das konnte ich fühlen.
Freundliche Grüsse Isabell Reinecke und natürlich "Cassie" .......... Agata, The dogs are having such great fun! How fortunate for their owners to have you caring for their pets...
Wishing you much success... Betty

Pet Sitting and Dog Walking in Geneva
Tel: +41 (0) 79 391 27 30 http://toms-pet-sitting.blogspot.com email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our purpose is to provide safe, stress free care for animals whose owners are away and we provide in-home care only. That is, we look after your pets in your home when you go on business trips or vacations.
Pets become extremely stressed in kennels. The stress comes from being in a foreign environment surrounded by strange animals and people. This is especially true for animals that have been adopted from a shelter.
Kenneling pets that have been abandoned, or traumatized may cause them to revert to old negative behavior. Your pets do not understand that you have only left for the weekend. What they do know is that the kennel is a strange environment, with ugly smells and strange animals.
Why should your pets have to leave the comfort and safety of your home just because you have to go out of town? Their food, toilet and favorite toys are at home. The most important thing to them, your smell, is all around them. Your smell makes them feel safe and secure and reminds them of you. Something a kennel can never do.
These are just some of the reasons we provide in home care only. Although it is not cruel or inhumane to put your pet in a kennel, we believe the alternative we offer is healthier, safer and smarter.
Expect professional, reliable, loving care for your pets time and time again when you utilize our services. We hold our sitters to the highest standards, and we strive to exceed your expectations in providing outstanding service with every visit!
If, for any reason, you are ever dissatisfied with our service, simply let us know. We will attend to it right away to make it right and assure your satisfaction. Guaranteed.
Frau Priska Baumgartner and Frau Katja Fritzsche take care of our two cats and our apartment (plants, etc) when we're away, and we've been very pleased with their work. They also seem to be familiar with the vets in the region, which provides an extra peace of mind. We recommend them highly. Details of their (geographical) area of service can be found on their website. One potential downside is that they don't speak English. In 2004, the firm was written up in the NZZ http://www.speedy-service.ch/daten/referenzen/zeitungsartikel.php [zc]
Places you can board your pets when you travel
- Zürcher Tierschutz, Zürichbergstrasse 263, 8044 Zürich, 044 261 97 14, http://www.animal-protection.ch/vereinprojekt/kontakt.html
Mainly an animal shelter for homeless animals, they also board cats and dogs. I have no personal experience with them, although I did visit them once to check out the facility. During my visit, several people came in who appeared to be repeat customers. The people who were on duty were happy to show me the cat kennel areas, and answer my questions as best as they could. [zc]
- Cat Hotel , Oberdorfstrasse 15, 8932 Mettmenstetten, 01 767 05 80, http://www.cathotel.ch
We boarded three cats with Frau Maja Spiess soon after arriving in Switzerland from the US. It was a very pleasant experience for us (and for the cats, to some extent). One of the cats required special medical attention and Frau Spiess was able to take care of him very well. [zc]
