A Healthy Pet is a Happy Pet!

Why We Stand Out
  • Supporter of Preventative and Wellness Care

    We want to prevent your pets from any major setbacks in life. It is important that they routinely get checked and cared for to avoid any surprises. We will help educate you on how to make this happen!

  • Convenient Medication Delivery

    Spend more time with pets and family! ​You can shop our online store to have your medication mailed. Orders generally ship directly to you within 3-5 business days.

  • Quality Veterinary Care

    Our state-of-the-art facility has a full in-house laboratory, pharmacy, surgery and laser technology that allows our dedicated staff to practice a wide variety of services for your pet family.

  • Advocates of Reduced Fear Vet Visits

    Heartland has launched a "Reduced Fear Initiative" to minimize the stress and fear that comes with a looming visit to the vet. This not only increases your pet's overall health but minimizes your stress as well.
