Fear Free Seminar with Dr. Marty Becker, DVM

On April 26th, the A&R Critter Care team was privileged to attend a Seminar hosted at Mile High Stadium where we heard Dr. Marty Becker speak about an initiative called Fear Free.  To say the least, we were incredibly impressed and are making it a priority for ARCC to be the first professional pet care service (in the country!) to have a Fear Free Certified Professional and begin implementing this practice! We absolutely loved hearing more about this initiative because, being veterinary professionals, we’ve felt that there is always more we can do to help reduce a pet’s fear and anxiety  when it comes to not only veterinary visits, but also medical treatments at home.

10 Reasons Why Veterinary House Calls Are Awesome!

10.  You don’t have to go anywhere.

There was a time, so long ago, when the doctor would come to your house, treat your illness, then have a cup of coffee with your family.  Up until recently, the only doctors who made house calls anymore were farm vets.  Now you have me, Dr. D – I will come to your house, take care of your pets, and leave you happier and less stressed out.  You don’t even have to give me a cup of coffee.

9.  You don’t have to get in the car.

Can’t drive?  Physical limitation?  Giant stubborn dog who won’t get in the car?  Little dog who vomits every time you drive them somewhere?  Multiple children (or just one) to cart around with you?  It’s tough sometimes.  As Bob Marley says, don’t worry about a thing.  Dr. D will come to you.

A Whole New World of Pet Therapy with a Pawsitive Touch

My 9-yr-old cat, Blue, has chronic, painful hips. It started about 6 months ago when she stopped being able to jump up on the bed. She was a little more vocal when being picked up, and didn’t want to play with her housemates. We brought her in to see our vet, and after doing x-rays, found some rough aging changes in her hips that were pretty ‘ouchy’. We started supplements, pain medication, and cold-laser therapy, which helped a bit. She was definitely more comfortable, but hated the cold laser. And trust me, when your cat doesn’t like something (even though it helps), everyone knows about it. Then we found Dana. [Read more…]

Pet Friendly Senior Assisted Living Communities In North Denver

Research has proven over and over the importance of pets in people’s lives.
