How Can You Request An Appointment?

Once your appointment is set, one of our staff members will email you to confirm the specifics.
Do You Offer Any Promotions?
Yes! We have a terrific promotion that we offer year-round called Vaccines for Life (VFL) which has a one time enrollment fee, and then your pet's vaccines are at no cost beyond that. The only caveat is that you must bring your pet in for an annual wellness exam with one of the veterinarians on our staff to remain 'current' within the program.
The state of Florida actually requires that in order for a veterinarian to provide medical services or dispense any medications, that there be a Veterinarian-Client-Patient-Relationship (VCPR), which they interpret as one wellness exam a year of your pet, by the veterinarian you will be seeking services from. This is also in keeping with the guidelines for medical care established by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
So really, the best part of the Vaccines for Life program, is that by bringing your pet in once a year for their annual wellness exam, you not only keep your enrollment current in our program, but you will be meeting the state requirements regarding the VCPR, which will allow us to treat your pet, dispense medications and prevention, since you are already established with our practice! We consider the VCPR to be essential to maintaining a high level of care for your pet - so much so that we add in the incentive of free vaccines!
