• Half-A-Vet Pet Sitting was founded due to a need in the Gainesville area for medical quality in-home pet sitting, particularly for animals which can not be boarded with their veterinarian but still need technically skilled medical care to allow their owners to travel.
  • The average veterinarian graduates with upwards of $200,000 in student loans. Our goal is to give students a flexible job in a field they love, which gives our clients the highest quality of knowledge and compassion available in home pet care.
  • Students often refer to themselves as “half vets”, although they have been in college for over half a decade to pursue their dream.
  • Because of this commitment to our profession and our specialized medical knowledge, our service is simply unmatched by the other pet sitting services in the Gainesville area.


Kitten Cuddles - $20

Our smallest package, this is for easy going households and animals that just need our caring touch added to their day. Approximately 20-30 minute visit.

Labrador Lovin’ - $30

These houses are ready for serious playtime and might need special medical care or just some extra attention. Approximately 30-45 minutes.

Pittie Playtime - $40

Our most complete package. These households have animals with specific requirements, which can take up to an hour for appropriate care, or just need long supervised playtime.
