Of course, this charge is just the charge of your services. You have to charge separately for the medication. You can either have the client buy the medication, which you will give the pet or you could buy the medication, and charge the cost to the client.

An animal lover can best do this job. Only an animal lover can handle a pet in case it gives you trouble when dispensing the medication. Some pets may get violent on seeing a new person and it is only if you are an animal lover that you will be able to handle the pet.

There is no point in abusing the pet; it will not cooperate with you by taking the medication. Moreover, once you treat their animal with respect, the client too will treat you with respect and will call you again the next time their pet needs worming.

You can cater to clients in your city or town; and having a vehicle will be an added advantage for you. This way, you can service many pets in a day.
