October 15th-21st is National Vet Tech Week

Have you hugged your vet tech today?  As a pet sitter in Mesa, AZ  I am very thankful for all the vet techs we have the honor of working with on a regular basis.  It is important for us to get to know our client's veterinary staff.  This week is as good as any to show our appreciation to our very important vet techs!  Here is what we did to appreciate our friends at Johnson Ranch Animal Clinic and other clinics around the east valley:

I made a surprise visit to the staff at Johnson Ranch Animal Clinic and gave them all custom cupcakes.  I heard through the grapevine that they LOVED anything chocolate, so I made sure all the cupcakes were made with chocolate cake.  I personally thanked them for all their hard work and of course hugs were given.

Veterinary technicians have a very difficult job.  Many times only seeing our pets when they are in distress. I was talking to one technician that has never dreaded coming into the office.  I asked, "Even when you have anal gland expressions all day?"  She laughed and replied, "Hey, if it makes them feel better, that's what makes me happy."  As a true professional would.  

How will you appreciate your vet tech this week?

Thanks Jenna! We appreciate all you do for our clinic pet owners too!

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.
