Heritage Animal Hospital is dedicated to maintaining and improving the quality of life for all our patients. Our clients entrust the care of their beloved animals to us each and every day, and we have shared many memories with them in doing so. From a new pet adoption to the passing of an old friend, we have overcome many concerns, and experienced many joys. The veterinarians and staff at Heritage Animal Hospital look forward to continued relationships with our customers and the community.



Heritage has won Frederick News Post’s Best Veterinary Hospital!
