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

We love the holidays, too, but be prepared for these hazards that may attract the interest of your inquisitive pets.

Why Get a Preventive Care Exam?

If you only visit Heartland Animal Vets when your pet is injured or sick, you’re missing the opportunity to get a complete picture of her health. The preventive care exam allows our veterinarians to detect potential health issues and begin monitoring or treating them right away.  By committing to preventive care, you could extend it by months or years. It’s well worth the investment when you consider how much love and joy your pet brings into your life.

Preventing and Treating Hot Spots

Acute moist dermatitis, more commonly known as hot spots, occurs due to a bacterial infection on your pet’s skin. Your dog or cat will naturally bite, chew, lick or scratch his skin in response to an irritant. Unfortunately for your pet, this tends to increase rather than decrease his discomfort. Anal gland disease, allergies to fleas or food ingredients, mange, tick bites, and inadequate grooming are the primary causes of hot spots in companion animals.
