- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
I have recently relocated to the Columbia/Ashland MO area. One huge plus of living near Ashland, for us, has been finding Heartland Animal Hospital. Dr. Cuddihee, DVM and her capable staff have shown very professional, passionate and caring attention when examining, treating and boarding my dogs. They have taken the time to educate me in procedures and advancements in veterinary care. I feel no hesitation in leaving my animals in their care.
