VHA Cares

Helping Paramedic Students

Each summer, Veterinary Healthcare Associates serves as a clinical lab site for Polk State College Paramedic students to practice intubation techniques. It is extremely important that graduates of a Paramedic training program are capable of providing advanced life-saving measures to patients in emergency situations. One of the most critical skills that a Paramedic must possess is the ability to intubate, or pass a tube into a patient’s trachea (windpipe.) Unfortunately, sometimes Paramedics respond to situations where small children or infants are in serious condition.

Support Fund

When advanced care is needed, help is there.  

Dr. Nations has created and actively supports a fund designed to care for special cases brought to his attention. Although we can’t afford to care for every destitute pet brought to our attention, with the help of VHA Cares we can help some. Our doctors provide high-quality care for these less fortunate animals at no charge, but there are still expenses for treatments and for healthcare supplies.  

Empowerment

The strength of VHA lies within our team members. They are the bricks and mortar of who we are and why we are here. We believe there is endless potential within each of us, and we empower our team members for individual success. We foster creativity, leadership, and personal growth and understand that this will promote a powerful sense of contribution and fulfillment. We empower our clients to be able to make the very best decisions for the care of their pets. Knowledge is power; belief in oneself is empowerment.
