Our Pawlicies

As the owner of Dallas Veterinary Clinic, Dr. Priddy endeavors to provide a high standard of care to all of our patients. We are here to provide care for your furry friends throughout their lifetime, treating the whole pet, not just when they’re sick. Meeting your pets’ needs will likely include preventative care, maintaining consistent year-round heartworm/flea/tick prevention, dentistry, nutrition consultation and maintenance, regular wellness check-ups, surgeries, acute illness, ongoing treatment of chronic conditions, and also providing Spa or Day Stay Services to your pet.

Our team at Dallas Veterinary Clinic is committed to ensuring that our clients have peace of mind knowing that their pets are in the best hands and receive the gold standard of care in our modern, safe and comfortable facility. In order to honor these standards and expectations in our practice, we have set policies according to and per recommendations of the AVMA, AAHA, and CAPC in order to uphold our core values and provide a safe environment for all pets.

We value our kind and compassionate environment.

Payment for all services and products is due at the time of service. At this time, we are unable to offer financing options. We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, and Discover.

Late cancellations with less than 24 business hours notice may be charged the full exam/consult or tech visit fee.

Pre-payment of the exam/consult or tech visit fee may be required after no-shows/multiple reschedules, and a deposit is required to book a surgery, which is non-refundable without 3 business days notice.

Our clients have three options to fill their pets’ medications:

  • Support a locally-owned business and purchase directly from us (ask for coupons/rebates)! We know your pet and stock what our doctors regularly prescribe (many medications require temperature control, which we ensure year-round).
  • Need convenience of home delivery? Click on the “pharmacy” button on the main page to visit our online home delivery pharmacy (verified sources-directly from manufacturers-no fake product, rebates always available, often free shipping!)
  • If you still prefer to obtain pet meds elsewhere, we will ask that you sign a waiver acknowledging we are not liable for any product failures, reactions, or problems for incorrect or fake product purchased on an open/unregulated marketplace, and pick up a paper written script. **We do not authorize any prescriptions or refills over the phone, we do not have a fax line/machine, and are unable to email or mail scripts due to FDA, TBVME, pharmacy board, quality control, and other regulations.

Please allow up to 48 business hours to fill prescriptions, although many can be filled same-day.

In order to maintain the Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship as defined by the AVMA, and to ethically provide the best care, Dr. Priddy requires a minimum of one well visit and exam per pet every 12 months. For patients who require maintenance medication, more frequent visits and blood panels may be required in order to refill medications. Please allow up to 48 business hours to fill prescriptions, although many can be filled same-day.

Heartworm testing should be part of your pet’s regular preventative care plan, testing annually. DR. PRIDDY WILL NOT PRESCRIBE HEARTWORM PREVENTATIVE WITHOUT REGULAR TESTING. Most dogs should be tested annually unless doses were delayed or missed-then follow-up testing should be done sooner.

A SINGLE mosquito bite can transmit this deadly disease. It is VITAL to your pet’s health that heartworm preventative is given consistently and on time each month. We also offer ProHeart for dogs, a 6-month injectable heartworm preventative administered in clinic every 6 months. Puppies are typically tested at their 1 year well visit. Rescues/adopted dogs should be tested at 6 months post-adoption. To visit the Heartworm Society, click here.

Day Stay

Day stays are charged on a per-day basis. Medication administration is included in our fees, except for injectables which are charged the “special care” per diem fee. We reserve the right to charge per diem “special care” which may include fractious or aggressive pets, special needs or special meal/med preparation, or pets that are not spayed/neutered. By leaving your pet at our facility, you consent and agree to pay for any requirements listed above to be updated as necessary at DVC and treatment for emergency or illness while pets are staying with us.

  • Rabies, Distemper/Parvo, Lepto, Bordetella (within 6 months), Intestinal Parasite Screening (within 6 months), and Bivalent Canine Influenza.
Feline guests:
