Rachelle Bookatz


Having contacted Essex Pet Care and meeting Rachelle, I was readily put at ease with her professional manner and address to detail, and the knowledge that our two boys (Cats) Sage & Onion were looked after in our home in familiar surroundings when we were on our holiday for a few weeks. We would highly recommend her and her company and will happily use her again.
