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.

When To Seek Emergency Care
The following general situations should help you determine if you need to seek emergency care for your pet:
I have been a patron of Heartland Animal Hospital for over 3 years. My black lab, Emmett, is fearless and accident prone. Thus, I am quite fortunate to have Dr. Cuddihee and staff a phone call away. Whether he needs a patch-up from a woodland romp or perhaps a stomach remedy for eating something he shouldn't have... I can always trust they'll have him back in good health in no time. When I have to travel for work, the boarding process is quick and easy, and his accommodations are always clean and comfortable. When I pick him up, I can often tell he has been happily playing outside in the courtyard. I wholeheartedly recommend this establishment to any pet owner who is looking for affordable and quality animal care.
Emmett is always excited to come see his friends here. All I have to say is "Let's go to Heartland" and he will race to the truck.
