Services Available at Heartland Animal Hospital

Wellness
When it comes to keeping your pet happy and healthy, routine wellness care provides the perfect foundation. These annual or semi-annual visits allow our doctors to gather a complete health profile for your pet and use that information to monitor any changes that may occur along the way. Early detection of disease can significantly improve the outcome for your pet and can reduce the costs of veterinary care for you over time.
Dentistry
We believe in treating dental care under anesthetic in the safest way possible, including intubating so no bacteria or debris is inhaled, IV fluid support on every patient, state of the art oxygen and heart monitoring, and a warming blanket on every patient.

A home care program is important in maintaining a healthy mouth, ask us about what options might work for your pet.
Diagnostics
Many illnesses and injuries that our pets can suffer from cannot be detected on the surface of the skin. Veterinary diagnostics are invaluable tools that allow us to delve deeper – below the surface to learn exactly what’s happening inside your pet’s body so that an accurate diagnosis can be reached. Heartland Animal Hospital utilizes a broad range of diagnostic services to manage the ongoing health of our patients.
Orthopedics
TPLO / TTA is the recommended surgery to repair ACL tears for all dogs over 90 pounds, 60-90 lb. dogs that are very active, or have performance careers, pre-existinarthritis or other orthopedic problems. We have done many TTA's over the last year and have had equal results as with the TPLO. Knee surgeries typically cost $3000-3500. At the consult, choices and options for your dog will be presented.

Seasonal Information

Lyme disease is a real threat to our geographic area, and the prevalence is increasing. One of the best ways to protect your pet is by having your dog get a Lyme vaccination. Take advantage of our beautiful Minnesota weather by hiking and being outside, knowing your pet is fully protected from this nasty parasite.

Heartland Animal Hospital in both Faribault and Owatonna go even a step further in protection, by offering a combination vaccination for Lyme and Leptospirosis. Don't let fear of disease or illness for your dog keep you indoors when there are preventive solutions available. Here are a few other preventive steps to take:
 

  • Clear tall grass and brush from the edge of your lawn and the outer parameter of your home.
  • If you stack wood outside, place it in neat piles in a dry area to avoid attracting rodents that carry ticks.
  • Place wood chips or a gravel barrier between your lawn and any wooded areas. 
  • Be sure to mow your lawn weekly and don’t allow leaves to pile up in your yard.
  • Keep your pet away from edges of forests, ponds and lakes where raccoons or other mammals may congregate and leave contaminated urine behind.

Holiday Considerations for Your Pet: Seeing The Holiday Through Your Pet’s Eyes

When you see the holiday through your pet’s eyes, the big guy in the red suit may seem kind of frightening. And that’s not all - the home filled with scents of tasty but possibly unhealthy and dangerous foods, the noise of the door opening and closing as guests arrive makes their hearts race, strangers scares them, and ornaments look an awful lot like toys. Plus there’s the tree - which looks like an indoor bathroom to your dog.

Prevention and Treatment of Heartworm Disease in Dogs and Cats

Heartworm can have devastating consequences for your pet, including death. It is especially tragic when dogs and cats succumb to heartworm disease when it’s entirely preventable.
