Ellen Wright is an experienced veterinary technician with eight years of experience in the field. Throughout her career, she has worked with countless animals and breeds. While she left her career as a veterinary technician to follow her dream of becoming a registered nurse, she still pursues her love and passion for animals, specifically cats and dogs, by offering pet sitting services.

Ellen joins me today to share how you can plan to make sure you’re ready for the cost of having a pet. She also shares how various breeds play a significant role when purchasing pet insurance, the potential health concerns that can affect different pets and breeds, and how to properly plan travel arrangements for yourself and your pet.

I'll also share valuable tips to help you find the right pet that suits you, your lifestyle, and your budget and the things I considered before purchasing my beloved pet, Rosie.
