  • Honestly I have never been to such a great vet. THIS PLACE TRULY IS THE HEART OF BROOKLYN! Thank you, heart of Brooklyn for being so great! – Kara C.

  • This new Veterinary practice is a much needed addition to Fort Greene. Since I met him last year, Dr. Bill Farmer has provided my wife and I with great advice and information dealing with our two cats and dog (who recently passed away from old age). When our dog was ill, before the office opened, Bill spent time on the phone with me for free and explained his condition better than my dog’s actual vet. It was great relief when they finally opened. We have already taken one of cats there and again got excellent advice and service. I totally recommend this practice. – Abbot W.

  • Dr. Farmer took care of my pets when he was at Brooklyn Vet. He has always been gentle and dedicated. He explains everything very clearly and I personally have known him to go out of his way to provide optimal pet care. I look forward to taking my pets to his new office on their annual visit. – Rachel W.

  • This clinic is a welcome addition to Fort Greene. I took my 14 year old dog (blind & deaf) to see Dr. Farmer. He was so kind, gentle and thorough and took great pains to inform me of the best way to make sure Paxton is happy in his later years. Dr. Farmer’s clinic is clean, bright and happy–and his staff is friendly and responsive. I could not be happier with this visit! – Michelle P.

  • Wonderful experience. Dr. Farmer is the most comprehensive and thorough vet I have visited throughout the span of three dogs worth of doctors. He and his staff are very friendly and informative. And as far as pricing goes, they are upfront and do their best to explain every single charge, which is the best I could ask for from any veterinary office. – Shannon D.

  • Dr. Farmer and his team is by far the best Vet I have taken my animals to. I have two large senior dogs and two Senior cats, all with their own issues and Heart of Brooklyn has handled each one with incredible care. Such a great addition to our community. Can’t praise HOB enough. – Peter H.

  • Dr. Farmer and his staff are great at what they do! They’re knowledgeable, patient and kind. We had a dog emergency a few weekends ago and Dr. Farmer squeezed us in and was able to diagnose and come up with a treatment plan for our Yorkie, Bleu, immediately. We are so glad to have Dr. Farmer as our vet! – Jane P.

  • We met Dr. Farmer about a year ago when he was at another clinic. We are SO excited that he now has his own practice. We were very grateful for the way he helped guide us in the care of our very old dogs in their final months. Dr. Farmer and his staff are always very patient, helpful and extremely welcoming, I am so happy to have found a vet that we trust to give the absolute best care to our two pups (one recently adopted and another older girl). – Denise H.

How often should I feed my pet?

We recommend that pets get meal-timed feedings 2-3 times per day. It’s important to keep pets on a routine feeding schedule.

How often should I deworm my new pet?

Pets should be dewormed at 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks with Pyrantel Pamoate. Also every pet should be checked for worms on their initial visit regardless of their deworming schedule.

When should I bring my pet to the vet?

Pets should come annually for routine vaccines, blood work, and intestinal parasite screens. Dogs should come every 6 months to receive their Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccination.

Should I give heartworm preventive?

Yes. We recommend giving your pet heartworm medication once a month for life. Heartworm is spread by mosquitoes.
