Our Az Pet Professionals Network Meeting has come and gone.
Welcome Shannon Kipp with Kay-9 Companion Pet Care! You are officially a new member and we are so pleased to have you!
We would like to update you on two of our Groomers. We will sadly be missing Theresa Luzzi and Barb Ryansford from Aloha Grooming and Bark Bath and Beyond. They have been so gracious to stay on with us as members but are currently soooo busy with business that they are filled to capacity and unable to accept new clients. We will miss them but they will let us know when they are accepting anyone new again. Thanks Barb and Theresa! Our remaining groomers, Nikki owner of Pampered Paw and Amber and Jasen owner's of Cutie Paw Tootie are extremely busy but please call them as they do have some openings available. If they are full, they will point you to somewhere else. Thanks girls!
We have included Dippity Do Dog on our website as an alternative for those of you who think you may have fun taking your dogs to a grooming salon that offers both self serve amenities so that you can bathe your own dog as well as full time groomers on site. Their facility is very nice, very clean and the people have always been very friendly! See their link to the Left in our Members Area. We have just discovered how fun Twitter can be and hope you will follow us and see what we are up to! Thanks again everyone for your continued support! We have some Charity Events in the works to help some of the area Animal Shelters. If you are interested in Donating any items, please let me know. I am going to start collecting them. We will keep you posted! Have a great week! Kim MacCrone, Owner of Vetek Chic On Wheels. Email:

Surprisingly enough these are also places where some “not so delightful” inhabitants hang out in our state! You've heard the news this past week...... Snakes bites are on the rise!! Again! 
Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.

If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
 • Consider purchasing a snake kit Avoid rock piles or tall green grass/bushes where snakes like to rest. 

About 150 people in Arizona are bitten every year. 
Some of Arizona’s rattlesnakes can also be lethal. 

Scottsdale is notorious for having snakebites and s…

Dogs and Valley Fever

Dogs and Valley Fever What you need to know

Dogs primarily contract Valley Fever (Coccidioidomycosis) in the low desert regions of Arizona, New Mexico, southwestern Texas and the central deserts of California. Dogs accompanying people traveling through these areas or wintering in these warm climates have about the same chance as their owners of being infected.

With the Monsoon season approaching, doctors say there will likely be increased cases of Valley Fever in people as well as in our pets.
Valley Fever is caused by a fungus that lives in the desert soil. As part of its life cycle the fungus grows in the soil and matures, drying into fragile strands of cells. The strands are very delicate and when the soil is disturbed; by digging, walking, construction, high winds-(Monsoons) the strands break apart in to tiny individual spores called arthroconidia or arthrospores.  We get Valley Fever by inhaling the fungal spores living in the dust when it's blown around by disturbance.
