Any questions about these preventives please call one of our locations

Florida Law requires that your pet be an established patient of Florida Aid to Animals. An established patient is defined as a patient has been seen at FATA, by one of our doctors, within the past calendar year, have a current Rabies Vaccination, and a negative Heartworm Test once a year.

Only Canine patients are required to have a heartworm test to purchase heartworm prevention

If your pet’s vaccines & heartworm test were done at another clinic and are still current we are happy to accept and record official veterinarian documents that prove such. You can schedule an exam to establish your pet with one of the FATA doctors to purchase medications at one of our two FATA locations or over the phone at the respective numbers listed below.

We apologize for any inconvenience, however, we are NOT permitted to sell prescription medications to anyone who is not an established client/patient. Our friendly staff will be happy to help you find an over the counter preventative option best suited to your cat's/dog's needs until such time that your pet can established with us.
