Heartland Animal Hospital

What to Expect on Your First Visit

We understand your first visit to a new veterinarian is full of questions and anxiety. The staff at Heartland Animal Hospital will do all we can to make your first visit as smooth and stress free as possible... For you and your pet!

-  It is important that we get as much information about your pet's history as possible. For that reason, the first thing we will do to make this visit run smoothly is review any records you provide so that we may address any questions you have as well as assess the needs specific to your pet.

-  Next, we will ask that you bring a stool sample so we can check for and treat any intestinal parasites. If you have multiple cats that use the same litter box, any fresh sample will suffice. It does not need to be specific to that particular cat. If your furry friend is shy about where they go potty, we can attempt to get a sample while they are visiting us.

- We will ask about your pet's diet- what kind of food they are eating, how often and how much- as well as any medications or supplements they are given, including flea, tick and heartworm preventatives. Then, of course, we will address any specific issues your pet may be having.

** Remember, our goal is to provide you with all the information needed to help you become the best pet owner you can be. We will give advice and tips throughout your visit.  If you have any questions or concerns at any point, please, let us know! We want to provide the best service possible and open communication is key.


We know your time is valuable! Please fill out our New Client Form below. If you have records for your fur baby, please attach them so we can get a history before your appointment. If your records are still on file at your previous vet's office, please have them sent via email to heartlandanimalhosp1883@gmail.com


Tell Us About the Patient

Photo or Record of the patient (optional)

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.
