About Elite Pet Care

Hello, my name is Marion Heggie and my greatest passion in life is my love of animals.

I was born and brought up on a farm in Ayrshire and my whole life has been about animals, great and small. I was brought up in the company of our horses, cattle, pigs, goats, dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters and budgies. From the age of four I worked on the farm, learning all about animal behaviour, their care and their needs. I loved, and continue to love the great outdoors, the countryside, and everything that it brings.

When I left the farm I moved to Edinburgh and then West Lothian, where I latterly worked for the Scottish Government in the Animal Health policy team; and although this work was very interesting and rewarding, I longed to be back working hands-on with animals.

I qualified with an Animal Healing Diploma, having studied with Elizabeth Whiter in West Sussex. This was a year long course which involved studying animal nutrition; energy healing work; anatomy and physiology and animal behaviour. We visited many animal rescue centres where I had the privilege of working with all types of animals.

I have been a volunteer at the Dogs Trust in West Lothian for sometime now, which has been a very humbling and rewarding experience. I mainly do energy work with the dogs, which is a wonderful form of relaxation for them. As well as dog walking, I have also taken some of the rescue dogs along to dog training classes run by their trainer/behaviourist, which helps give them a better chance of being rehomed.

Please be assured that any pets in my care will be treated with the love and care that I have shown to all my own pets over the years. Animals are such individuals, and I am more than happy to tailor the care you require to the needs of your pets.

I offer a free initial consultation which gives you the chance to meet me and allows us to have a chat about your pet’s requirement and the type of care you are looking for.

Please feel free to phone me for a chat and I will do my very best to help you.
