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.
