Kim MacCrone- Veterinary Technician making a difference for pet owners

Featured Pet Expert of the week! Kim MacCrone, Certified Veterinary Technician, and Pet CPR and First Aid Instructor.

Kim's February's Pet CPR and First Aid class is going to be extra exciting! Kim has partnered with Kathrine Breeden, a well known professional dog trainer and behavior consultant, and fellow member of Az Pet Professionals, in joining her after class inviting pet owners and businesses who work with dogs for an hour long informative and fun session on force free dog training and dog behaviour. Questions and Answers with hands on demonstrations on Force Free Dog Training with one of Kim's own young dogs, Sammie. See the flier below for additional information. You don't want to miss either of these classes!

Kim MacCrone is the founder of Az Pet Professionals and the business owner of Vetek Chic on wheels (Vet Tech on wheels). She is also a certified Pet CPR and First Aid Instructor through Pet Tech Inc., the first International pet CPR and First Aid Training Center in the world.


Kim founded Az Pet Professionals in 2009 because her desire to collaborate with other pet professionals on a business and social level lead her to seek out like minded business owners. Her belief was to never refer her own clients to someone she did not know or trust for pet services she did not offer. Kim wanted only people that she knew and trusted to care for her own clients pets.

With that, Az Pet Professionals has grown to be one of Arizona's most popular and well-known Pet Network Groups! The goal of Az Pet Professionals is to make hiring a pet expert easy for pet owners!

 "If you work directly with client pets you need to be trained and educated in Pet CPR and First Aid in case of a sudden emergency, illness or injury with the pet in your care." 

 "People have In-Home Nurses, why not our pets?"  Kim

Kim recently changed jobs from Johnson Ranch Animal Clinic to a clinic closer to home, Animal Medical Center of Chandler and is excited to start her new career path with them!

Kim has an In-Home Pet Nursing business that allows her to work with Valley Veterinarians who recommend Kim to assist their clients with (in home) demonstrations on how to administer subcutaneous fluids to their pets when needed.

Kim supports pet owners by doing "hands-on demonstrations" from beginning to end making it easier for the pet parent to continue to give the pet the needed care.

Kim has had the extreme pleasure of speaking to many veterinary assistant students at well known Veterinary Assistant Programs in the Valley.

Two of her all time favorites is participating in Power Paws Assistance Dogs Summer Camps and speaking to the kids that attend Paradise Valley's Science and Agriculture College. She has said that spending time with these amazing kids at the college and the Power Paws summer camp program, has been more rewarding than she could have ever imagined.

Boarding facilities, Grooming businesses and Pet Resorts have also sought out Kim's expertise in the pet world by training their staff members to be more aware of spotting an illness or injury with one of the pet vacationers as well as basic pet care. Often these companies have their staff participate in one of Kim's pet CPR and First Aid classes. 

Kim's passion is working with animals and is apparent in the areas she's chosen to work in. Her  passion is about educating pet owners and pet businesses in responsible pet ownership.

In the very near future, Kim will be offering her new class to valley pet sitters "How to Pet Sit like a Vet Tech." This class will help educated valley pet sitters in the importance of many things to watch for during their visits to client homes. Kim is excited to begin classes and will announce the first one when it is complete.

Kim holds monthly Pet CPR and First Aid Classes in Chandler on Friday mornings. To read more about Kim's services please visit

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.
