WHEAT RIDGE, COLO– According to Dr. Jeff Young, they are “down to only about 10-12 thousand surgeries a year” at his veterinarian clinic, Planned Pethood Plus, located in Wheat Ridge, just outside of Denver. Beyond the impressive volume of animal care, Planned Pethood boasts an animal rescue/adoption operation, and an international spay and neuter training program for veterinarians in countries with companion animal overpopulation. You may also know Young from his television show, “Dr. Jeff: Rocky Mountain Vet,” now in its sixth season on Animal Planet.
Young recently sat down with Complete Colorado Editor-in-Chief Mike Krause on the public affairs tv show Devil’s Advocate (airs Friday nights at 8:30 on Colorado Public Television, Channel 12) to talk about his high-volume, low-cost clinic and its mission. That video is below and is well worth the time.
Our unofficial motto at Complete Colorado is “Always free, never fake, ” but annoyingly enough, our reporters, columnists and staff all want to be paid in actual US dollars rather than our preferred currency of pats on the back and a muttered kind word. Fact is that there’s an entire staff working every day to bring you the most timely and relevant political news (updated twice daily) from around the state on Complete’s main page aggregator, as well as top-notch original reporting and commentary on Page Two.
