Veterinary Practice Serving All Of  Your Pet's needs

Surgery & Internal Medicine

We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include:  Professional Veterinarians and technical staff, to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet; advanced sterilization techniques; ECG and oxygen saturation monitors; intensive after surgery care and full blood testing.

Emergency and Critical Care

In any emergency, seconds count. Emergency care is offered during regular business hours as well as after hours by Dr. Heilmeier or Dr. Singley. In addition, we are a vital participant in a veterinary emergency service that has a veterinarian on call 24 hours a day on weekends and including holidays.

Wellness Care

We strive to prevent illness whenever possible. The time and effort invested in wellness programs have rewards for both pets and owners. Our wellness programs are designed specifically for your pet and include: comprehensive physical exam; internal parasite testing; heartworm and flea control; vaccinations; spay or neuter packages; specialized blood testing for all life stages. We stock a wide range of the best veterinary products in the animal health care field. Our staff is trained to help you decide which flea, tick, and heartworm preventives are best for your pet. Many of the products we recommend are guaranteed.

Specialists & Telemedicine

Sometimes conditions arise that require veterinarians with specialized training. Through the use of telemedicine we are able to utilize the expertise and training of veterinarians such as board certified veterinary cardiologists, dermatologists, oncologists, neurologists, radiologists and ophthalmologists.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy is a surgery free, drug free, non invasive treatment to reduce pain and inflammation and also speed healing after a surgical procedure. Our class IV deep tissue laser uses a beam of light to deeply penetrate without causing damage. Laser therapy has been scientifically proven to be successful in treating post surgical pain and many acute and chronic conditions.


This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs, and abdominal organs. Occasionally ultrasound guided biopsies may be taken to assist in diagnosis, eliminating the need for exploratory surgery. Pregnancy exams are also available.

Digital Radiography

Digital Radiography or X-rays help our veterinarians evaluate musculoskeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems.

Dental Care

Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet's teeth and the overall health of your pet. We use modern and safe Ultrasonic Scaler to clean each tooth thoroughly - above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Advanced dental care, including root canals and oral surgery,  are available through referral services.


Microchips implanted under the skin have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. We offer the most widely used microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery should your fur-baby get lost or displaced during a bad storm. The procedure is painless and only takes a few minutes to perform.


Animal Medical Center has it's own luxury pet boarding facility. Heilmeier's Bed & Biscuit is your pet's home away from home offering luxury suites with custom made beds, televisions, and very large exercise areas.

Soft Paws

Invented by a Veterinarian as a humane alternative to declawing soft paws are nail caps that are easy to apply. Your cat will not know they are wearing them. The caps and the dried adhesive are safe and non- toxic. Your cat can still scratch but there will be no damage.
