Food & Medication Information

Your pet’s dietary and nutritional information is a vital part of their medical history. An accurate and thorough dietary history is needed for our medical staff to provide recommendations during times of health maintenance and is essential for accurately diagnosing and treating your pet in times of illness.

Please list all food and treats you feed to your pet on a regular basis. For dry food, a “cup” measurement refers to a standard 8-oz cup. Please specify if a larger serving cup is used and provide the estimated volume.

A detailed record of your pet’s prescribed and over-the-counter medications is essential for our medical staff. Our veterinarians will use this information to help guide any needed medical therapies and ensure that no drug interactions exist between medications that your pet may already be taking and medications that your pet may need to receive in the future.

Please list all your pet’s medications (prescribed by our veterinarians or another hospital) and dietary supplements (i.e.: glucosamine/chondroitin, Omega 3 oils, vitamins, etc...)

Canine Vaccination Consent

At Novey Animal Hospital, we believe your pet’s vaccination needs should be tailored to their specific lifestyle. Your veterinarian will use the information you have provided below to critically evaluate your pet’s needs for vaccination and make recommendations for their care.

Core Vaccinations

Core vaccinations, as established by the American Veterinary Medical Association, are vaccines that all dogs should receive regardless of lifestyle.

  • Rabies (required by Florida Law) – Administered every 3 years after initial booster
  • DHP/PV (distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, parvovirus) – Administered every 3 years after initial boosters

Non-Core Vaccinations

Non-core vaccinations should be administered to your dog based on risk of exposure.

Our patients are administered either Previcox (firocoxib) or Metacam (Meloxicam) at the time of vaccination to prevent pain and inflammation at the site of vaccination. Please notify us if your pet experiences vomiting or diarrhea after their visit.

Canine Rabies Information

Rabies is a fatal disease to all animals that become infected and is spread by common local wildlife in our area such as bats, raccoons, and foxes. People who are exposed to the Rabies virus require expensive, immediate, and long term treatment, which does not guarantee survival or full recovery. If your pet is not vaccinated for Rabies, he/she could become infected with the Rabies Virus, thereby posing a threat to you, other people, and other animals. Rabies vaccination is required for all pets in the State of Florida. Leon County recognizes both the 1 year and the 3-year vaccine.

During your visits to our hospital, our staff will be handling and restraining your pet(s) in order to provide care and medication. In order to avoid injuries to you or your family, we ask that you trust us to do this without your assistance. We may feel it necessary to use towels, muzzles, gloves, or even sedation to avoid injuries to our staff members or your pet.

In the rare event that a pet bites or scratches someone, please be aware of our legal obligations. Novey Animal Hospital will immediately notify Leon County Animal Control if any of the following scenarios occur:

  1. You, a staff member, or any adult present are bitten by your pet.
  2. You, a staff member, or any adult present are scratched in the face by your pet.
  3. A child under 18 is scratched or bitten by your pet.

Leon County Animal Control will require that your pet be quarantined. They require that we file an incident report and disclose your name, address, and phone numbers, as well as your pet’s medical history. After the report is made, Animal Control will make a determination in regards to quarantine. The 10-day quarantine may be at your home, at Novey Animal Hospital, the Animal Shelter, or at any veterinary hospital. You will be responsible for any costs associated with boarding your overdue quarantined pet. You may also receive a citation and a fine from the county.

Leon County Animal Control allows a 20 day grace period from the date the Rabies vaccination is due. After that, your pet is considered overdue and may not qualify for “at-home” quarantine.

Please be assured that our experienced staff will use every precaution when handling your pet. We hope to make your visit here today as safe and stress-free as possible for you and your pet.
