FEATURED MEMBER OF THE MONTH- VETEK CHIC ON WHEELS


Hi! I'm Kim, owner of Vetek Chic on Wheels. I am a Certified Veterinary Technician, aka, the name of my business stands for Vet Tech who is "on the go" coming to you!

Vetek Chic On Wheels is a Service that assists clients at home with their Pet's Medical Needs.
Some Examples are clients who own pets that require subcutaneous fluids at home as part of their Veterinarians prescribed home-care, assistance with insulin injections, assistance with ear cleaning and much more!
I have been a Veterinary Technician for 18 years and have seen firsthand how many animals go untreated once they leave their Veterinary Clinic and head for home. Too often people get frustrated and intimidated with providing that recommended care at home by themselves.
My desire is to come to you in the comfort of your own home, in a relaxed, familiar atmosphere for you and your pet, to assist you with these procedures. I know how scary it can be to try to administer fluids to a cat! My goal is to show you how to make this go easier at home so that you feel confident about providing your pet's care and your pet receives the care your Veterinarian prescribed. Everyone wins!

It can be impossible to get your pet to the hospital every day just for an injection or administration that was recommended to be done at home. Stressful for the pet, and expensive for you.
There are definitely times when your pet needs your Veterinarian and not me! I will always let you know what may be beyond my scope of care!
I have also created a Power Point demonstrating the Steps to administering subcutaneous fluids to your pet. This powerpoint can also be found at http://www.kimspetcpr.blogspot.com/ or you can email me for further information at: vetekchic@gmail.com



I am not a Veterinarian, but a Veterinarian Technician. That means that there is plenty that I can help you with, as well as plenty that I cannot help with!
I am able to assist with procedures that your veterinarian has already prescribed for you to do at home. You must have all prescribed supplies at home and proper instructions from your Veterinarian.
I am Veterinarian Referred from Veterinarians in the East Valley and can provide referrals from them if requested.

A typical appointment at your home lasts from 45-90 minutes. The first thing I have new clients do is run through their routine and show me how they've been providing treatment.
As I observe, I usually notice one or two things that are being done incorrectly or could be done in a different way to make things go smoother for the pet as well as the client. I will never change your Veterinarians instructions! Most of the time adjustments come from simply not remembering all that the professionals showed you in the clinic. Call it Information Overload! Back at home it's easy to forget what they just said or showed you.

Your Professionals, the Veterinarian and the Veterinarian Technicians can make things look easy in the clinic. It should! They've done it a million times!

Commonly I do not perform the procedures for you, rather I assist you in performing them yourself in an easier, more manageable manner. My goal for you is to achieve that confidence knowing that you are able to provide your pet's medical care at home without further assistance.
There are occasions that I do perform all procedures rather than just assisting you. Some examples are; assisting the disabled who do have procedures that need to be done at home but they are physically unable to provide. Elderly clients try hard but sometimes it's just too much. I don't want them giving up and the pet not receive the care they need! I come in and perform these things for them as well.

I recently completed an Instructor Course for Pet Tech International, the First International Training Center for Pet CPR and First Aid.
I am so excited to be able to offer this Course to the Public!
Pet CPR and First Aid is so important for people to be familiar with at home!
Working at the Veterinary Clinic for so many  years, I can tell you firsthand that 90% of our Emergencies that walk through the door could have been prevented or had a better outcome if the client had known just one or two things we cover in Pet First Aid or CPR courses.
Just a couple of these things done at home and many of these pets would've survived or costly procedures and recovery could have been minimal.
This is where my desire to Instruct CPR and First Aid came from. Firsthand Knowledge, nothing else. It was pretty simple for me to decide.
I also offer Pet Safety courses for children as well as one-on-one demonstrations for Administering SQ Fluids to your pet.
For more information, please see a Blog on Pet CPR and First Aid, at: http://www.kimspetcpr.blogspot.com/
Together, My Master Instructor, and Fellow Az Pet Professional, Malinda Malone, will be teaching classes larger than 10 people, together. If any one is interested in hosting or attending a class, please email me at: vetekchic@gmail.com.

NATIONAL "ADOPT A SHELTER DOG" MONTH

SNAKES IN ARIZONA

Article written by Kim MacCrone-CVT 






Okay, we all live in Arizona because the weather is almost perfect, the sun is almost always shining, the golf courses are luscious, there are multiple and beautiful wide open spaces and endless hiking trails! 

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…

National Adopt a dog month

National Adopt a dog month  And National Adopt a Shelter dog month




Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Has the thought crossed your mind in the past few months? If so, that's great! This is the perfect month for you to get down to business and do just that!

You might be looking simply for a companion, maybe a hiking pal, a friend for your grandparents or parents, how about an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day? Then this might just be the perfect timing!




Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.

A dog that is on the "E-List" (to be euthanized) is commonly a dog that might have growled when captured or put into a kennel, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are aggressive.


They were SCARED.
