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.
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.
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.

Hotel stays are charged on a per-night basis. Medication administration is included in our boarding 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.
Daycare is charged per day, regardless of the number of hours. Pets who are not picked up prior to the close of business will be charged nightly boarding for our pet hotel in an appropriate category.
