King’s Pet Care

Design Studio co-founder Carol King with daughter Andrea KingMy name is Andrea King and I have been a sincere animal lover for as long as I can remember. I always knew I would work in the animal field and go to college to study animals. So that is exactly what I have done. I graduated from Purdue University in 2006 with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Sciences. Throughout college and there after, I have worked as a veterinary technician. Throughout my education and my career, I have worked with dogs, cats, exotics and horses. In May of 2010, I had left my job as a veterinary technician at Boone Animal Hospital, located in Western Springs. I had worked there since July 2007 and loved it! Since having my first born, I decided to not return to Boone and start my own small business in providing people good quality services for their pets. Being a fellow pet owner my entire life and having my education and career background, any pet owner should feel totally confident in trusting me with their pets! Not only can I take care of your pets when you are away, but I can also use my professional knowledge and judgment to make sure that your animal is healthy and happy. I have also taken two passions of mine and put them together to offer another service to owners and their dogs. I have always loved animals and have always been a runner. I have combined the two to offer a wonderful service of dog running that can greatly benefit your dog’s quality of life and happiness, as well as your own.

My experiences, education and love for animals makes me 100% qualified to take care of your pets. You can trust me!!
