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.  

Excellence

Without question, veterinary excellence is our passion. It permeates every aspect of VHA from our exceptional and highly trained staff to our state-of-the-art facility and even Otis Spunkmeyer hospitality cookies. We are leaders in our veterinary community and are committed to advancing veterinary medicine on all levels. Our commitment to continuing education is fueled by our hunger for knowledge and burning desire for excellence.
