AS OF AUGUST 1, 2015, your dog must have an annual, negative heartworm test to purchase heartworm preventative. This is a prescription drug that requires an annual test
FRIENDS offers low cost vaccinations, microchipping, and heartworm testing on a walk-in basis at our clinic every Tuesday from 10 AM - 2 PM and the second Saturday of each month from 10 AM- 12 noon. Every pet will receive a free cursory physical exam prior to being vaccinated. This exam is extremely brief and is to make certain that your pet is healthy enough to be vaccinated. Your pet must be bright, alert, and responsive. For a complete, comprehensive physical exam to discuss any problem your pet is having, please see your full service veterinarian. Because our wellness team must look at every pet, we cannot vaccinate your pet while it is in your vehicle. If you cannot get your pet in line for the exam, then we cannot vaccinate them

THE BURRITOS! lots of little dogs in for surgery yesterday (now over 36,000 surgeries - when you do the math on number of lives prevented/saved - well, it's staggering!)...when they wake up, they go back to their kennels to wait for the doggie-moms and doggie-dads to pick them up...lots of love and care from volunteers and staff for all these critters.
