Welcome to Plantation Pet Health Center|
would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our practice! We
are a full service veterinary medical and surgical hospital. Our
practice handles a vast majority of veterinary medical and surgical
needs for the traditional canine and feline pets; as well as many of the
exotics including, but not limited to, birds, reptiles, rodents, and
other small mammals and marsupials. We also offer boarding and bathing
facilities as well. We hope we can service all of your family's
veterinary needs in the future.

SANTA AND MRS. CLAUS COME TO VISIT!
Once again we pulled some strings, through the reindeer (we fixed Comet's tummy after an embarrassing episode with some outdated holiday candy) and we have Santa and Mrs. Claus coming to the clinic Saturday, December 14, from 11 am to 1 pm! They are sitting for pictures with you, your, children, your pets, or whatever! Bring your own camera, and you keep all the rights to the picture. They ask only in the spirit of the season, that you bring a donation ($5 or more would be nice) to go towards the charity of our choosing. We have chosen the Frisco food pantry as they have been hit hard this year. This would also be a good time to drop a toy in the box for Toys For Tots too, if you feel so inclined. The sittings are first come first served, but they only have two hours (can't leave the elves unattended for too long you know!)
Hope to see you there!
TOYS FOR TOTS
We are one of many drop off locations for Toys For Tots this year! Please come and help this organization bring some Christmas joy to many children who would not otherwise experience what so many of us enjoyed as children. Please bring one (or more if you feel so moved) unwrapped new toy and drop it in the box in the reception area. Donations need to be received by 12/14 to give them time to catalog and distribute them in time for Christmas.
VACCINE PROTOCOL CHANGES
We have made significant changes in our vaccine protocols. No longer will we be vaccinating in a "one protocol fits all" approach as we did in the past. Check our vaccine protocol section of our website for more explanation. We will be fitting all vaccinations as closely as we can to the lifestyle, exposure risk, and previous vaccine history of each patient. This means that every pet could get different vaccines than other pets depending upon these factors. For this reason we will have a difficult time quoting totals initially because the doctor has to assess the vaccination needs based on the discussion during the wellness exam. Worst case scenario is that the cost is equal to what the old package is, but most likely it will be less based on what vaccines are really needed.
HOLIDAY BOARDING ALMOST FULL (11/29/13)!
We wanted to remind you that we do provide boarding services
for your pets. We offer clean and comfortable facilities,
in a climate controlled environment, with ready access to veterinary care. Dogs
receive 3 outdoor periods a day during the week. If your pet should become ill
or show signs of illness during their stay (e.g. vomiting, diarrhea, loss of
appetite, abnormal urine, sores, etc.) they will be examined by a veterinarian
at no charge. Once the examination is complete, you will be contacted at the
number you provide for authorization for any testing or treatment the doctor
feels is indicated. This of course only applies to symptoms developed while in
our care and not those present prior to admission or wellness examinations for vaccinations,
We also offer a discount for pets (dogs and cats only) from the same family
boarded in the same cage. The regular charge per night applies to the larger
pet and the second is 50 % off! This assumes 2 per cage. It is at the
veterinarian's discretion as to whether or not the breed or health or
temperament of the pets will allow for more than 2 in the same cage.
The only other time that multiple pets (dogs and cats only) per cage would not
apply would be if either becomes aggressive towards the other, or if size or
health (e.g. diarrhea, vomiting, contagious condition, etc.) do not allow for multiple
occupancy. In these instances, boarding will be at full price only for those
days when pets are separated from each other.
We will make every effort to accommodate these families, but
will not sacrifice the health or safety of the pet for the sake of price or convenience.
Our regular nightly boarding charges are as follows:
Dog's Weight Nightly Charge Additional
0-25 # $ 24.00 $ 12.00
26-50 # $ 27.00 $ 13.50
51-100 # $
30.00 $ 15.00
> 100 # $
Charge Additional pet
For exotics please call for pricing and availability.
Bathing at the end of boarding is recommended but not
required. We offer the bathing at a discounted price for all boarders. All
bathing is done on the final day of boarding so those receiving a bath will not
be ready for release until the afternoon to allow for bathing and drying time.
Call for pricing and for services included in the bath.
As always, space and special pricing are subject to
All boarded pets must be current on vaccinations, and have had a negative intestinal parasite screen within the last year.
During high volume times such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's we require a deposit to hold the space so call for details.
Call soon to reserve your spaces!
SENTINEL IS BACK!
We have Sentinel in clinic!!! The pricing is comparable to Heartgard with the added flea protection! Not sure how long this new introductory pricing will be maintained by the manufacturer but we wanted you all to know! There are also several rebates available for Sentinel and Parastar.Unlike many rebates, we process the paperwork for you so there is nothing to forget.
Ever wonder what we are looking for when
listening to your pet's chest? Heart murmurs are just one of the things
we are listening for. Check this section about heart murmurs for more information.
