Horse Care Services in London, Surrey & Kent - Very Important Pets

    • Horse care services

  • Our friendly and professional horse care services ensure your horse receives all the care and attention he needs while you're away

    • VIPs Horse care services

      As a horse owner, you know that your horse needs a lot of looking after. So when you’re away on holiday or you just need a need break, it’s reassuring to know that someone will, feed and care for your horse with the same love, care and attention as you do.

      At Very Important Pets we have a team of dedicated and experienced horse sitters who provide horse care.

      One of the horse carers from Very Important Pets will meet you and your horse and discuss his full routine and your exact requirements.

      Our horse care service is flexible, so can be adapted to suit your horse’s exact routine and needs.

      We ask that you pay your horse carer travelling expenses calculated at 45p per mile plus all parking, train fares and congestion charges. Travel expenses should be paid directly to them. We’ll always try and find a person that’s closest to you. But it’s worth finding out your Horse carers estimated travel costs before your first meeting.

      Our horse care services include:

      • Morning feed
      • Evening feed
      • Turning out
      • Bringing in
      • Changing rugs
      • Mucking out stables
      • Grooming
      • Watering – both in the stable and paddock

      If you have other pets please check out our range of bespoke pet services.

    • Kieran is extremely professional and cares about making sure my cat is happy and safe. I have had Kieran take care of my cat several times, and now I trust him to the extent that I am willing to plan my travel around his availability!

    • Carol is an amazing sitter, very committed with her work and she’s is really fond of dogs. She was sending me updates, photos and videos, and at the same time answering my questions almost immediately.
      I really recommend her.

    • Wendy is wonderful! This was new for us as we have never left our two boys for a week or used a pet sitter before but it could not have been easier. She looked after them beautifully and they were so relaxed and happy when we came home. She kept us updated everyday and we came home to a spotless house. Would love to use her again in the future and will be recommending VIP to our doggy friends!

    • I couldn’t have felt more reassured and at ease leaving my miniature dachshund with Lucy and her little boy, Rafe, for my first holiday without him! I was having trouble finding anywhere to board my dog as he’s not yet neutered and doesn’t always get along with other dogs so coming across VIPs finally gave me a solution as they offer individual dog boarding with experienced pet sitters. We were matched with Lucy whose home & lifestyle was absolutely perfect for my dog. She kept me updated whilst I was away and he clearly felt right at home as he was in no rush to come with me when I arrived to pick him up! We had a great first experience with Lucy & VIPs and have already booked in for next time we go away!

    • VIPs has been operating in our neighbourhood for a number of years. Having been recommended to countless numbers of clients, never have I heard a bad word against them. The staff are ever-professional (having been recruited even from our own flock!), the services they offer are all encompassing and they really have an ‘animal sense’ about them; meaning pets are at home under their care.

    • We have never been away feeling so relaxed and confident our dog was in good hands. Mark and his family were so welcoming and reassuring. We had regular updates on Sunday’s adventures and she was returned absolutely exhausted from all the fun. Couldn’t recommend Mark more highly.

    • I loved the “report card” from my sitter on my cats!I remain very pleased with the service from VIPs. It gives me peace of mind when I am away. Thank you!
