One Last Gift
One Last Gift Logo
Primarily serving Adams County, Boulder County, Broomfield County, Denver County, and Weld County in Colorado. Accommodations may be made for home euthanasia services in outlying areas in Colorado with sufficient advance notice.

Unfortunately, the time must come to say goodbye to our pets. Our animals give themselves to us fully, wholeheartedly and without hesitation. Most of us reciprocate that love which makes having to say goodbye all the more difficult. The experience of taking a loved one to an unfamiliar place to say a last goodbye is frightening for them and even more upsetting for us. With terminal and painful illnesses, the choice may be limited to an emergency clinic. Thankfully, there is an alternative. At One Last Gift we can give them: being able to say goodbye in the home where they are calm and comforted, and where they are surrounded completely by love.

Our pets are not merely pets, but family members. This is certainly true for Dr. Cordeiro. He understands the enormity of the love you have for your furry family members, because it is something he cherishes every precious day. Visit their website or call them today: (720) 432-4579.

Services include: Professional consultation; home visit; Euthanasia following sedation (ensuring comfort); aftercare & transport; general cremation (ashes are scattered on private property); private cremation (individual cremation and ashes are returned to you); a wide selection of urns and memorials; clay paw print keepsake.

Other Helpful Community Partners

ARF! Massage
ARF! Massage offers at home or in-hospital massage, basic rehabilitation, and photobiomodulation (low level laser therapy). Ms. Rhonda Matsuno can help animals recover from an injury, heal better after an orthopedic procedure, or ease the discomfort of arthritis as they become older.

Massage contributes to healing by increasing circulation, relaxing muscles, mobilizing joints, and awakening tissue by increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients available to cells. In conjunction with massage, Rhonda utilizes a low level power laser. It is a light therapy using lasers or LEDs to improve tissue repair as well as reduce pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied. It boosts growth and recovery of cellular energy and thus promotes cellular regeneration, production of collagen for tissue repair, vascular dilation, and synthesis for better circulation to increase the healing process.

There are countless benefits to treating animals with a balanced approach of Eastern and Western medicine. Today, pet owners look for alternative therapies to complement veterinary treatments. Laser is used by professional and Olympic level athletes. Please visit the ARF! website and reach out to Rhonda today!
