Cleo

Unconditional Love

“My mission is to remind you that I love you just the way you are. I am always happy to give you hugs when you need them. And if you have allergies, don’t fret; I’m hypoallergenic!”

There is evidence supporting the idea of using dogs in therapy. Our therapy dog, Cleo, is an option for patients of Dr. Mindy Werner-Crohn. Cleo offers comfort and companionship during sessions. Receiving ear scratches and belly rubs and giving total non-judgemental love are her specialities.

Empathy on Demand

“No matter how you feel, I will always provide a sincere and caring ear. If you wish, I am happy to comfort you and sit by your side.”

Though most of Dr. Werner-Crohn’s patients include Cleo in their treatment, you can opt to not have Cleo present. But, her pet hair and dander can’t help but be there. If you are allergic, maybe Dr. Mindy Werner-Crohn isn’t the best allergy-free choice.
