You know your pet better than anyone. If you feel his or her medical condition is serious and cannot wait, seek emergency care immediately. As pet owners ourselves, we know emergency situations don’t always happen at the most convenient times.
During our regular business hours, the medical staff and resources at Heartland Animal Hospital are available to help you with any emergency your pet experiences. If possible, please call in advance so we can prepare for your arrival.
If you have an emergency outside of normal business hours, we see our clients up to 10pm nightly and on weekends. If the veterinarian is unavailable or it is after these hours, we refer clients to the following emergency facility:
University of Missouri Veterinary Health Center Emergency Care
900 East Campus Drive

Dr. Cuddihee’s clinic offers a small, home town atmosphere with the benefits of a large town clinic. Our family has been blessed to have Dr. Cuddihee and her staff as our pets’ veterinarian for sixteen years, and her compassion and empathy is unsurpassed. We have had to make the painful decision to help two of our beloved pets move on and Dr. Cuddihee was with us every step of our painful journey. We have two geriatric dogs with one needing long term care. Dr. Cuddihee is knowledgeable and proactive in helping assure that our pets have a wonderful quality of live.
