COVID 19 Update 01/15/21

We are returning to strict curbside service. Please stay in your vehicle while we examine your pet. Please be patient, as this will extend our appointment times.

Due to the increased risk of exposure to COVID-19 🦠 and its’ variants, BAH is taking additional precautionary measures to keep our staff, patients, clients and our community safe, and to minimize potential exposure to the corona virus as much as possible.

All appointments, hospital admissions, drop off/outpatient appointments, surgeries, boarding, baths, nail trims, medication pick-up and grooms will be picked up from your vehicle and transported into the hospital by one of our team members.

Check in procedure:
🐾 Please text (850-810-0811) or call (850-893-3047) us when you arrive, and wait in your car.
🐾 We will send any needed forms to your phone for you to submit electronically.
🐾 Be sure to have your pet in the backseat or hatch.
A team member will come to your car to pick up or return your pet, or deliver medications.
🐾 Please be sure you are wearing a mask. 😷
🐾 We will use our own leashes to bring your pet inside.
🐾 Cats must be in a carrier, dogs must be on secure leashes.
🐾 A team member will call you with any needed treatment protocol, diagnosis, instructions and for payment.

For prescription medications, heartworm or flea/tick control refills or prescription diets, please call in advance to request these items. Let us know when you are in the parking lot and we will bring these out to you. Consider prioritizing our secure online VetSource pharmacy and our PetDesk app to request food and medications.

We truly thank you for your patience and understanding as we try to keep everyone safe during these trying times.

COVID 19 Update 6/15/2020

We are adjusting our curbside services and hours.
As of Mon, June 15, scheduled appointments (when you wait while the doctor sees your pet) will be escorted inside and into an exam room. Due to CDC social distancing guidelines and crowd size limits, we can only allow a few people into the hospital at a time. We are requesting a limit to the number of people who accompany your pet into the exam room in order to keep our clients, the doctors and staff as safe as possible. Exam rooms are thoroughly disinfected between appointments and given time by direct contact to let the disinfectants work their magic. Please be patient, as this will extend our appointment times.
Please wear a bandana or face mask inside, if you do not have one we can provide one. Hand Sanitizer is available in each room and at the front desk. Anyone who does not feel safe with this protocol or is ill (if you are ill with COVID -19, please stay home) is welcome to continue to stay in their vehicle while we examine your pet. Let us know your preference when you call for an appointment.
Curbside will continue for all drop off/outpatient appointments, surgeries, boarding, baths, nail trims, medication pick-up and grooms. Tell us which vehicle you are in and we will come out to retrieve or deliver your pet or medications.
Thank you so much for your continued patience and support. We are so looking forward to seeing you face to face again! I laughed when a kennel technician turned to me and asked "Which breed of car are they in?" Yes, we all learned some different car breeds!

  • At the conclusion of the visit, call us (850-893-3047) to pay via credit/debit card or Care Credit over the phone, and we will email you a receipt. We strongly discourage cash payments at this time.


These appointments may take a bit longer than our traditional appointments, so if your schedule does not allow for this, ask about the possibility of a drop off appointment instead.
Pets need love and care no matter what is going on in the world, and we are remaining open at this time to serve you and your furry family members.
Thank you for patience and understanding as new information is continuously reported and new protocols are established.

Evacuating with Pets

Don't loose your pets while traveling or evacuating from a hurricane.

Evacuating with Pets


No Animal Left Behind

As we all watch warily as TS Michael heads into the Gulf of Mexico, remember to activate your pet disaster plan now. Take photos of your pets now, check that they have ID tags, make sure their microchip information is up to date. Plan on an evacuation route, and a place to stay that allows pets. Gather food, water, kennels, leashes, medical information and medications and pack items in plastic bags to protect from water. Don't forget your flea, tick and heartworm prevention! Label your carriers with your name and phone number, and make a list of emergency contact numbers. If you need to evacuate, please drive carefully and stay safe everyone!

National Black Dog Day

October 1st is National Black Dog Day! “Black Dog Syndrome” is when, for whatever reason, black dogs are passed over for adoption in favor of their lighter-colored counterparts. Black dogs are sometimes associated with danger or aggression, they are harder to photograph, they can easily blend into the shadows in a kennel and won’t attract as much attention. But we know ‘Black dogs are filled with light’, and will love you just as much as any other dog!

Dr. Justice and the Cougar Cubs:

Dr. Justice went to the Tallahassee Museum to vaccinate (and play with!) a pair of 6 month old cougar cubs, Remy and Rory. The two cubs are sisters, and were born in captivity just outside of Texas. Right now they weigh around 30 pounds apiece, but will grow fast.

They both got their very important Rabies vaccinations, as well as their Feline Leukemia vaccines. Both were bright, alert, responsive and very playful! Remy previously had a spiral fracture to one leg that has been repaired, the pins will be removed in a few weeks.

The cougar cubs are new additions to the Tallahassee Museum, and will be permanent residents.
See more pictures of Remy and Rory here, in our gallery!
