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
