"Ilya from Wellness NOW has taken me under his wing to be his project for over 2 years now. I know I can go to him for anything that ails me or causes me dis-ease. He started with my eating disorder, saving my life from starving myself and causing serious irreversible damage to my body. He not only helped me bring my body to a healthy state of homeostasis, but he also gave my mind peace by helping me understand what was causing my eating disorder psychologically. A year later I was diagnosed with pre cancerous cells in my cervix. He took the time to find natural alternatives through traditional medicine of herbs and tinctures and helped me develop a plan to overcome my diagnosis. With his help, I have had normal healthy screenings for over 1 year!! His healing reiki massage is a regular favorite of mine from his treatments, I always feel restored and balanced after our regular sessions. Being a busy woman working two jobs and starting a business, I don't have time to make it to the grocery store all the time, rather than buying unhealthy processed frozen entrees in the grocery store while I'm on my way to work, I have healthy vegan meals delivered to me at work from Wellness NOW. I feel good about eating the meals because I know they are made with my health and well being in mind. I recommend their services to everyone. Thank you Wellness NOW!!!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much should you pay for a pet sitter?

Pet sitting provides your precious pet with in-home care. A pet-sitter can make a brief visit during the day to provide snacks, playtime or affection, or stay at your house for one or more nights to tend to your pet. Prices for pet-sitting will vary based on length of the visit. Nationally, pet sitting prices range from $20 to $30, although prices run higher for your sitter to stay the night. Prices will also be affected by where you live in the country. Here are some examples of average pet-sitting prices based on length of time and region:

  • 30-minute visit: $17 in a small Texas town.
  • 30-minute visit: $25 in Southern California.
    • 45-minute visit: $28.
    • 60-minute visit: $32.
  • Overnight stay (10 hours): $50 in Texas.
  • Overnight stay (10 hours): $85 in Southern California.
    • 12 hours: $100.
    • 24 hours: $200. This is a good option for a sick, elderly or brand-new pet that needs constant supervision.

How much does it cost to hire a house sitter?

House-sitting can be a lifesaver when you’re leaving town for any length of time. Whether you work remotely, you’re taking a much-needed vacation, or you just want to road-trip for a few days, it’s wise to have a pro keep an eye on your house and pets while you’re gone. Your home is more likely to stay safe and you won’t have to wrangle the kitty into a kennel to travel with you. The national average pet-sitting price ranges between $20 and $30. Pet-sitting and house-sitting costs will vary based on where you live in the country and regional labor rates. Another factor in cost is how long you want the house-sitter to stay. Some people prefer to have the house-sitter stay the night at their house, perhaps to care for an elderly pet or simply to keep a watchful eye on the home at all times. Overnight stays will cost more, ranging anywhere from $50 to $100, depending on services provided. For day visits, house-sitting and pet-sitting prices will increase incrementally the longer the visit and the more service you want performed. For example, a quick 10-minute visit to feed and walk the pet and bring in the mail could be $12.50, a 25-minute visit could be $18, a 40-minute visit $25, and a 50-minute visit $32.
