Overview

Company Description
Heartland Pet Hospital is a family-focused general practice that provides exceptional care to pets and their people. Here at Heartland, we believe animals play an essential role in family life and deserve the utmost levels of our attention. Our team – led by a devoted husband and wife duo – delivers high-quality medical and preventative care to companion animals in Bellevue, Nebraska, and surrounding communities. We are a small group of Veterinarians, Licensed Veterinary Technicians, Assistants and Client Service Representatives who care about each other and each of our patients. Our patients are not ‘animals’, they are furry family members. Veterinary medicine seems to attract the most diverse cross-section of different types of employees this creates a very fun but at the same time a very challenging work environment. We want to get to know the person on the other end of the leash and create a relationship of mutual trust and respect.

Heartland Pet Hospital has been a staple in the community for over twenty-five years and has long-standing relationships with customers and their children. From preventative to emergency care, Heartland Pet Hospital is determined to get to a solution without taking shortcuts. Our practice offers physical exams along with vaccines for dogs and cats. Our extensive in-house lab services allow us to perform high-quality diagnostic testing with electrocardiogram and digital radiology technology. We provide surgeries including but not limited to dental cleanings, tumor and mass removal, spaying and neutering, orthopedic procedures, declawing, and more. Our team understands that pet health goes beyond physical performance, therefore we provide behavioral and nutritional counseling.
