Premium Vet Care is a mobile veterinary hospital owned and operated by Dr. Blake Hefter in Plantation, Florida, just outside of Miami. Dr. Hefter’s La Boit-built mobile veterinary clinic includes a fully-stocked pharmacy, surgery suite, digital wireless x-ray, ultrasound, and a closely-monitored hospitalization area. Through his clinic, Dr. Hefter can provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories.

Dr. Hefter first took delivery of his mobile veterinary clinic in February 2018 after receiving his doctorate of veterinary medicine at Ross University on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts.
