Veterinary medicine has allowed our furry (or not so furry) friends to live longer and healthier lives, however, extending your pet’s lifespan is not without its concerns. Older pets begin to develop age-related changes that can affect their health. As pets reach the golden years, there are a variety of conditions and diseases that they can face, including weight and mobility changes; osteoarthritis; kidney, heart, and liver disease; tumors and cancers; hormone disorders such as diabetes and thyroid imbalance; and many others.

Dear Beach Pet Family,
Our goal is to provide quality individualized medical care in a timely manner. No-shows, late shows and cancellations inconvenience those individuals who need access to veterinary care. Please understand that the purpose of this is so we do not turn pets away due to an overbooked schedule, while other clients do not show for their appointment preventing us from treating an animal who desperately needs medical care. We would like to remind you of our policy regarding missed appointments. Thank you for your understanding!
A missed appointment is when you fail to show up for an appointment without a phone call or a 24-hour notice.
A veterinary/client relationship is built on mutual trust and respect. As such, we strive to be on time for your scheduled appointments and ask that you give us a call when you are unable to keep your appointment. As a courtesy, we provide reminder text messages and calls prior to your appointment. Our missed appointment policies are outlined below.
Cancellation of an Appointment:
In order to be respectful of the medical needs of other patients, please be courteous and call our office promptly if you are unable to show up for an appointment. This time will be reallocated to someone whose pet is in need of treatment. If it is necessary to cancel your scheduled appointment, we require that you call at least 24 hours in advance. Appointments are in high demand, and your early cancellation will allow another patient access to timely veterinary care.
How to Cancel Your Appointment:
To cancel your appointment, please call our office at 757-428-3251. If you do not reach the receptionist, you may leave a detailed message on our voice mail. If you would like to reschedule your appointment, please leave your name and phone number and we will return your call promptly.
A cancellation is considered to be late when the appointment is canceled without a 24-hour advance notice.
Appointment No Show Policy:
A “no-show” is a client who misses an appointment without canceling it. Failure to be present at the time of a scheduled appointment will be recorded in the client’s chart as a “no-show”. This includes arriving 15 minutes after your scheduled appointment. The first time there is a “no-show” or late cancellation there will be an exam fee charged to the client's account.
Please understand this policy is to ensure your pet gets the help he/she needs in a timely manner. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
Please understand that we receive over a hundred refill requests each day. Requests take the time of our doctors and support staff to approve, invoice, and fill each medication. For this reason we ask that you allow us 48 hours to fill your pet's medication, and that you pick up your pet's medication within 2 weeks of it being filled. Medications that are not picked up take staff time to return to stock and remove that balance from the client's account. Due to an overwhelming amount of medications not being picked up, we will now be leaving a $10 restock fee if your pet's medication is not picked up within 2 weeks of being filled. Please understand medications have expiration dates and we risk losing product costs if not picked up. Thank you for your understanding!
One fine body…
