Wagtopia is currently servicing these cities in California’s Bay Area: San Jose, Saratoga. Campbell, Cupertino, Santa Clara, Los Altos, Palo Alto, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, and Los Gatos.
The reason Wagtopia Care Providers stand apart from other pet sitters, boarding facilities, and dog trainers in the San Jose area is because of their exceptional experience, courteous approach, and higher education. Whether you are looking for a trained member of a local veterinary hospital to come over and teach you how to administer subcutaneous fluids to your pet so you can avoid costly trips to a vet, how to become trained in pet first aid and CPR, or information on preparing for your pet’s final chapters and in-home euthanasia, we are here to help.
If your pet is in need of light medical assistance, the staff at Wagtopia are here to support you and even train you so you are confident enough to do it yourself. All members have countless years of Veterinary Technician and Veterinarian Assistant experience and are just a phone call a way. There is no charge for medication administered while being cared for during one of our pet sitting services. The medical duties and rates we provide are:

Work 1 on 1 with an experience Veterinary Technician as they teach you how to perform medical care services yourself.

Always remember that any first aid administered to your pet should be followed by immediate veterinary care. First aid care is not a substitute for veterinary care, but it may save your pet's life until it receives veterinary treatment.
