Welcome to Heritage Animal Hospital! Here your pets will be treated as they deserve: with compassion, respect and gentle hands…and lots of treats! Our beautiful new hospital is home to highly experienced and dedicated doctors and staff who celebrate the human-animal bond in every interaction with clients and their pets. All of our staff members are certified (or are working towards certification) as Fear-Free practitioners, which means they have received extra training to make your pet’s visit to H.A.H. even more enjoyable.
PET WELLNESS & VACCINES
Proactive and Positive
Keeping your pet healthy is our top priority and a comprehensive annual physical examination is the single best thing you can do to ensure your pets’ health. Diagnosing health problems before they progress – often before symptoms even appear – greatly improves the chance of a successful outcome. Because of that, for older pets we recommend a physical exam every six months to minimize the risk of potential issues. During the examination the doctor will listen to your pets’ heart and lungs, check his eyes, ears, teeth, etc., discuss any recommended diagnostics and answer any questions you may have about his physical or mental health.
While vaccinations are an important part of maintaining animal health, our doctors will work with you to determine which vaccines are appropriate for your individual pet. Vaccine recommendations may vary depending on your pets’ age, lifestyle and risk factors for various diseases.
Deep Clean and Protect
Dental health affects more than your pets’ ability to chew. Excessive tartar and gingivitis (infection of the gums) can result in a shower of bacteria being spread throughout your pets’ body, affecting not just the mouth but also the heart, lungs, liver, kidney and other vital organs. Loose teeth can also cause pain. We encourage regular brushing and providing your pets with toys and treats that promote good dental health, but most pets will still eventually benefit from a dental cleaning. Using the same equipment as human hygienists, your pets’ teeth are cleaned using both ultrasonic de-scalers and by hand scaling, followed by a high-speed polish.
Routine dental procedures are performed with the pet under general anesthesia, both for their safety and so that the technician is able to perform a thorough exam and cleaning. We take every precaution to minimize risks and make each anesthetic procedure as safe as possible. There will occasionally be a rare pet for whom anesthesia is not a viable option, and for those pets we offer anesthesia-free teeth cleanings once monthly.
A Fear-Free Operation
At Heritage Animal Hospital we do not consider any anesthetic procedure to be “minor.” Even routine procedures are taken very seriously and with every precaution for your pets’ safety.
Surgeries routinely performed:
Sterilization (Spay/Neuter)- Dogs, Cats, Rabbits
Caesarian Sections- Planned and emergency
Cystotomy- Bladder stone removal

please reach out by phone 435-535-3634
Heritage Animal Hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment which in many cases allows our doctors to determine your pets’ diagnosis faster and with less expense for you. We offer digital radiography, which allows us to obtain precise internal views of your pet faster than standard X-ray machines, significantly reducing both X-ray exposure time and any stress associated with being held in position. In addition, in-house equipment means we are often able to get results of blood and urine tests while you wait. Of course for specialized tests we use an outside laboratory with a primary focus on testing for animals. Most results are obtained within 24 hours.
EMERGENCY CARE FOR CURRENT CLIENTS
Available 8am to 10pm (EXCLUDING MAJOR HOLIDAYS)
At Heritage Animal Hospital we believe that care should be available when care is needed. Modeled after human urgent care services, Heritage is proud to offer urgent care services to its current clients. Please note that urgent care cases will be seen based upon the severity/emergent nature of the medical condition not “first come, first serve." Wait times can vary for this service and additional fees will apply. After hours emergency services are provided to current clients, an emergency fee will apply.
When you give us a call after hours at (435) 535-3634, you'll be forwarded to one of our trained assistants or our emergency vet, who will assist you.
Beginning Summer 2022 Heritage Animal Hospital will partner with a 24/7 Emergency and Critical Care Hospital in Sunset, Utah to provide emergency services from 10 PM to 8 AM and all day on major holidays.
PET DAYCARE & BOARDING
Feel at Ease While You're Away
Do you worry about how your dog is faring home alone while you’re at work or out running errands? Even the most laid-back of dogs need a change in environment to keep them mentally stimulated. Every dog is different, but most dogs prefer a fun and exciting environment to lying around at home staring at the same four walls. Doggie Daycare offers that stimulating environment and so much more! Bring your dog to Heritage and continue your day worry-free because you know your dog is not only having the time of his life playing with us but is also being looked after by dedicated, loving, educated staff members.
