We are excited to announce our new Campaign feature! Every 2 months our hospitals will be running a new campaign to help promote pet health awareness. What does this mean for clients? Discounted services and products, of course! We know that sometimes maintaining your pet's health can get expensive and overwhelming, so we are pulling out all the stops to help make taking care of your pet as easy as possible. We will be working with our food, drug and laboratory representatives to try and bring you the best, most affordable veterinary care we can. You can follow us on Facebook or just make sure we have a current email address on file to receive the most current campaigns and discounted products and services.
On September 15th, 2016, the ownership of Ferndale and Fortuna Veterinary passed from Dr. Chuck Ozanian and Dr. Kevin Silver, to Dr. Kristopher Flores, and his wife, Jennifer Flores, RVT. Dr. Silver and Dr. Ozanian would like to express "a deep appreciation to all our clients who have entrusted us with the health of their pets and livestock" and "it has been an honor to serve as animal health professionals for a community that values animal and public health." They have strived to carry on the tradition of their predecessors Dr. Harlan Detlefsen and Dr. Mel Roberts and are confident Dr. Flores will continue in that endeavor. Dr. Silver and Dr. Ozanian would also like to publicly thank all the current (and past) employees who have helped share the responsibility of animal care with them. The efforts of dedicated and loyal veterinarians, veterinary technicians, receptionists and kennel assistants have been an amazing attribute to the practice. They would also like to give special recognition to Kelly Victorine, who has worked tirelessly as office manager for over 25 years! Bravo! From the staff to Dr. Ozanian and Dr. Silver we say: thank you. We cannot begin to express our gratitude and appreciation for the most wonderful employers an employee could ask for. You've created a unique environment that nurtures and cares for it's staff like no other and we are proud to not only call you a boss, but also our friends. Currently, Dr. Silver and Dr. Ozanian are only working part-time between the two hospitals and are enjoying their much deserved time off. They will continue to be a part of Dr. and Mrs. Flores' new enterprise until, as Dr. Ozanian says, "they grow weary of us old timers!"
We are excited to announce the addition of our own personal online store! You will now be able to request your pet's prescriptions (including flea, tick and heart worm prevention) and food right from the convenience of your home or smart phone. Shipping is free on all orders over $49! Select items may be eligible for our Auto Ship function, which will ship items at no cost directly to you at your specified arrival time! This is greatly beneficial to help remember to give monthly medications such as flea, tick and heartworm prevention. Remember, all prescription items will still need an approval from our office, which means your pet's physical exam must be within the past 12 month
You may have noticed a new look to our website! Please bear with us as we update our information and get a whole new makeover. We are excited to bring you some new online features that will help you stay current with your pet's veterinary care!
