When you find yourself nestled comfortably in your home, the concerns of the outside world might feel distant. For pet parents, this comfort often extends to their beloved furry friends, especially those who live indoors. Yet, even in the sanctuary of home, some threats are universal, and one of those is rabies. If you’re a diligent client of Reno Pet Sitter, you'll appreciate the emphasis we place on the rabies vaccine for all cats and dogs.
Rabies might sound like a disease of the wild, but its reach is far and wide. While outdoor pets undeniably face a higher risk due to their potential encounters with infected animals, indoor pets aren’t immune. A bat with rabies could enter a home, or a seemingly harmless scratch from an infected stray could have dire consequences.
Did you know? Rabies is required by law in Nevada for every dog, cat, and ferret who is 12 weeks of age. This mandate isn't just a formality—it's grounded in a genuine concern for the well-being of pets and humans alike. Most often, cats get rabies after being bitten by a wild animal. Even if you have an indoor cat, they are still at risk. An infected animal such as a mouse could enter your home and spread the condition. Therefore, this law acts as a proactive measure to ensure our pets are protected.
While we're on the topic of rabies, any mammal can potentially carry the rabies virus. From the innocent-looking raccoon rummaging through your garbage to the bat in your attic, risks are omnipresent. As pet owners, we must always be vigilant about whom our pets interact with.
For our beloved pets, the rabies vaccine isn’t just a recommendation; it's a shield.
At Reno Pet Sitter, we've always prioritized the well-being of the pets entrusted to our care. This starts right from our first meet-and-greet. Every initial consultation is an opportunity for us to understand the unique needs and temperament of each pet. The requirement for an up-to-date rabies certificate isn’t just about paperwork; it’s about peace of mind. This dedication is mirrored in every aspect of our service.
From meticulously adhering to our scheduling constraints to serving specific zip codes, we are intentional in all we do. Our aim is to be close to your home, offering prompt service every pet deserves.
Our service spectrum is broad. Whether it’s administering medication, engaging in a playful session, or ensuring fresh water and clean bowls, we’re there. And when Reno’s unpredictable weather or road conditions challenge us, we adjust without compromising on care.
Having provided pet care services since 2007 under the aegis of Reno Pet Sitter and Ruff Ruff Ruff Meow, we've seen, learned, and grown. What started as a passionate endeavor has flourished into a commitment. We ensure your pet feels loved, cared for, and safe when you're away.
Living in Caughlin Ranch with my Labrador Retriever, Farley, I’ve been enamored by the bond between pets and their owners. My love for the outdoors and animals often intersects, like during hikes with Farley. Through Paws 4 Love, Farley and I volunteer and give back.
Trust is paramount. That’s why, beyond licensing, I've trained to become a Fear Free Certified Pet Professional. Addressing fear, anxiety, and stress in pets is integral for a holistic pet sitting service.
The rabies vaccine is a small yet crucial step. For every client of Reno Pet Sitter, it's our shared commitment to the well-being of furry family members.
So, as you reflect on your pet's needs, remember that Reno Pet Sitter is here to offer a helping hand, a gentle pat, and service that mirrors your love for your pet. We anticipate being a part of your pet’s joyful and safe journey.

The Perils of Summer Heat
When the summer sun shines brightly over Reno, the heat can become unbearable. Just like us, our pets are susceptible to heat-related issues.

Additionally, they can adjust the indoor temperature settings to create a comfortable environment for your pets.

Sunburn, overheating during walks, encounters with wildlife, and insect bites are just a few examples. Reno Pet Sitter takes the safety of your pets seriously. During their visits, they provide supervised outdoor playtime, leashed neighborhood walks (weather and road conditions permitting), and protection from pests. They ensure that your pets enjoy the outdoors while minimizing risks and maximizing their fun.

While the indoors may offer respite from the scorching heat, it's important to create a pet-friendly environment that keeps them cool and comfortable. We understand this and include measures to beat the heat indoors as well. We check indoor temperatures, adjust window coverings to regulate sunlight, and ensure that there are cool spots for your pets to relax. By paying attention to these details, Reno Pet Sitter ensures that your pets are safe and content during the summer months.
