This year's Open House will be held Saturday, November 24th from 1-4 pm. Please come and join us!
Last Year's Open House
On November 26, 2011 we held our 4th annual open house. As usual it was a full house with over 150 people and their pets attending. Santa was kept very busy as he posed with over 100 families and their animal friends that ranged from cats and dogs to pocket pets and birds. It was a great opportunity for our staff to share our facility with the public and to provide insight and education into our daily challenges and work. Everyone was encouraged to participate in various contests as they toured our hospital. Surgery, dentistry and radiology were particular highlights and allowed us to showcase some of our patients' profiles. Complimentary nail trimming was offered and donations were collected for PALS, an organization dedicated to training dogs as personal assistants. We were blessed to be able to celebrate this special day with so many folks!
This Year's Charity
Your generous donation will go towards the cost of restoring "Dusty's" mobility so he can find a forever home and live a happy, productive life.
Arrowhead Veterinary Centre is pleased to introduce "Dusty". "Dusty" is a 6 year old male neutered German Shepherd....AND, more importantly, he is our Chosen Charity for our 2012 Open House.
What can we say...."Dusty" is looking for his forever home. He is a tremendous dog, and is exceptionally easy going and mellow. Unfortunately, "Dusty" has a significant injuries involving both his right and left knee ligaments/joints. Because of his injuries, "Dusty" has not been successful in his quest for a special home and family. All of us at Arrowhead Veterinary Centre, as well as several other wonderful individuals in our community, are determined to change "Dusty's prospects. "Dusty" is scheduled to have both knees repaired next week. After a significant healing period, "Dusty" will be ready and excited to join his new family. We expect "Dusty" to be "jumping for joy" in only a few short weeks.
Would "Dusty" be a good dog for you and yours?
Please join us in helping to make a contribution towards "Dusty's" future!!!!!
Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to You from All of us at Arrowhead Veterinary Centre!!!

Meet "Everest", a new Autism Assistance Dog in our community . . .
Arrowhead Veterinary Centre would like you to meet a new dog in our Community. "Everest" is a 3 and 1/2 year old Lab X Hound cross that was specifically bred and trained to be an Autism Assistance Dog for a local autistic child. He is an absolutely amazing dog. "Everest" is almost 100 lbs of solid muscle. He acts as both a mobility aid and special friend and companion to his child. You may be fortunate to see "Everest" in Cochrane, in his "working" role. Please help us welcome "Everest" and his family into our streets, and any of our stores, businesses and restaurants around town.
