All dogs, cats, and ferrets in Florida are at extreme risk of being infected by heartworms, a deadly disease transmitted by a mosquito bite.
It is crucially important that your pet be given a monthly preventative for protection. If you do not currently have a heartworm preventative, please ask us for information.
Our office is committed to providing the best quality care possible, and, though it is health-related, it is also a business. We ask that you notify us in a timely manner if you are unable to keep an appointment. This provides us with the opportunity to give your appointment time to someone who urgently needs to be seen.
We charge a $125 cancellation fee for each appointment cancelled less than 24 hours before the appointment time. Thank you for your attention and help with this matter.
We are pleased to welcome you to our practice and include you in the Veterinary Healing Arts circle of friends. It is important that your pet is current on all of his/her vaccinations except if vaccination poses a detrimental medical risk.
It also important that your pet be free of internal parasites such as worms and external parasites like fleas, ticks, and ear mites. We have many safe and effective resources for you to use to keep you, your pet, and our other clients free from infestation – just ask!
If we are not satisfied that your pet meets the necessary health conditions, we will test and treat your pet for all parasites; this is a public health issue and is for the protection of your pet as well as our other clients.
