This week you can pick up real clay 4” x 8” brick pavers for only 45 cents each, a savings of 40%! These tumbled, “old-world” brick pavers look like they are reclaimed, yet have all the benefits of a new product. They can easily be laid over sand or a concrete base for just over $2 per square foot which is less expensive than laying a concrete slab. The difference is that you are getting a material that lasts forever, looks fantastic, is incredibly strong and never fades!

I am also enclosing our prescription drug policy for out of states firms soliciting business in Arizona. They particularly promote Flea and Tick and Heartworm products.

Our policy follows:

As of March 1, 2009, our office will no longer honor or write prescriptions for out of state Pharmacies.

I am not licensed in any state except ARIZONA and can not justify circumventing the law by faxing prescriptions to other states in which I am not licensed. There are Pharmacies in ARIZONA that accept my prescriptions and I will be happy to fax or call the local pharmacies to fill my prescriptions. In the event that the cost to fill the prescriptions in ARIZONA is prohibitive, I will fill the prescriptions in my office for the same price or cheaper than the out of state pharmacies EVEN IF I LOSE MONEY DOING SO!

This policy will hold true for any Veterinarian employed by Mid-City Animal Hospital, LLC! If this is not satisfactory, please let me know and we will forward your records to any Veterinarian of your choosing.

The certificate will have a 60 day expiration, but we won't activate them until 12/25 so everyone will have plenty of time to use them (they'll expire 2/24/10). If they want to activate it early that is fine. And, make sure not to lose the certificate cuz it's like cash - it can't be traced or replaced.
