Come On In, We Won't Bite

Welcome to Heartland Animal Hospital! We are thrilled you stopped by. Whether you are new to the clinic or you have been coming here for 20 years or more, are an experienced pet owner, or considering becoming one, we welcome you to our family!

Our Social Distancing Protocol

In light of the current situation regarding coronavirus, at Heartland Animal Hospital our first priority is the health and safety of our staff and clients. To minimize exposure and risk, we are going to implement a revised appointment procedure.

We will continue to schedule appointments at specific times, but will be asking clients to remain in their vehicles or outside of the building when they arrive. Please utilize the air conditioning in your vehicle to keep yourself and your pets cool. Please call the front desk when you arrive to check in and discuss the details of your appointment with a technician. One of our staff will come out and bring your pet inside, we will be using our own leashes to handle your pets. The doctor will call you on your cell phone to discuss your pet after their exam. We can take payment over the phone and will bring your pet back to you in your car. Checks and cash will still be accepted. 

For pets needing end-of-life care we are happy to come to your home or to make arrangements for you to enter the building. 

Drop off appointments will continue to be accepted as normal. We will keep you informed of any updates as they happen through email and Facebook. 

Medications and pet food can be paid for over the phone and brought to your car or, you have the option of using our online pharmacy(VetSource) via our website. Please feel free to call us at 573-657-1883 if you need assistance with our online store.

We are so fortunate to have Dr. Patti Cuddihee for our cats’ doctor. For 18 years, she seems to always know exactly what to do for our cats. We just wish we had a doctor for us humans that was as intuitive about our needs as Dr. Cuddihee is about our cats’ needs. She knows them all by name and loves them.

This year we had to have our most beloved cat euthanized. Dr. Cuddihee came to the house and, afterwards, hugged me and cried with me.

Usually, our stories are good ones. Recently, an 18 year old cat that is slowing down and has health issues had to have his teeth cleaned and extracted. He also had an ulcer in his mouth that Dr. Cuddihee had to treat. Unlike usual, he came home the same day ready to eat and cuddle and, by evening, go for a walk outdoors, with us.

The young ladies at the clinic are always so friendly and helpful, as well. Thanks, Dr. Cuddihee, for taking such good care of our beloved furry family.
