What we do

Our Veterinary Services

Dogs and Cats

We believe pet wellness and preventive care is critical to the overall health of your pet. Disease prevention through vaccinations and examinations we can catch and treat diseases at their earliest stages.


Did you know that dermatology doesn’t just involve the skin? While dermatology consists of caring for hair loss, skin growths and irritations, we also care for and help manage ear infections and various types of allergies!


Exotic pets deserve special veterinary attention. At Heritage Pet Hospital, we understand the unique needs of pets such as rabbits, hedgehogs, reptiles, guinea pigs, gerbils, fancy rats, and snakes.


Are you the proud parent of a parrot, parakeet, African Gray, or other type of bird? Avian medicine is a very specialized part of what we do here at Heritage Pet Hospital, and you can trust that your feathered friend is in good hands!

Experience the Fear Free Difference

We take your pet’s emotional well-being as well as their physical well-being into consideration at each visit. If you have a fearful or anxious pet, please give us a call prior to your pet’s appointment to discuss options to make your pet’s visit as stress free as possible.


We now have 4 Fear Free Certified professionals on staff! Ask for Deb, Jeanne, Krista or Kathy for more information!
