About Elder Pet Care
Dr. Tracy Thomas and Elder Pet Care
Graduating at the top of her class from CSU Veterinary School in 1984, Dr. Tracy Thomas went on to successfully serve clients with small animals in the Fort Collins area for 10 years. By 1994 She was no longer able to ignore the alarming need for affordable pet care to our seniors. So with a sincere, compassionate heart and a lot of sweat and tears, Elder Pet Care was established by Dr. Thomas right here in Fort Collins.
Today Dr. Thomas, along with an excellent staff of professionals and volunteers, continues to faithfully serve our seniors day in and day out. Elder Pet Care is making a difference, by providing convenient, affordable, top quality veterinary services to the elderly of Northern Colorado.

Benefits of Pet Ownership
The benefits that pets provide for their owners have been proven time and time again to be positively therapeutic. Studies have shown that senior citizens who own pets, experience improved emotional and physical health. By offering unconditional affection and companionship, pets have proven to help lower blood pressure, decrease anxiety and provide a sense of security in what sometimes may be a lonely world for our seniors.
