I've had dogs and cats my whole life, and have lived in big cities, suburbs, and small towns. When I found Dr. Heidi, it was because she was on call over a holiday weekend. She diagnosed my dog before we were through the door, saving his life. Since then, I've made the hour and a half round trip for all my dogs and cats, and would crawl on my hands and knees to get there. When the heartbreaking time for "the end" came, Dr Heidi sat down on the floor with my dog, my kids, and me, and took whatever time we needed to make the passage as gentle and compassionate as possible. She is an excellent vet and a beautiful person, who works to make her facility the best it can be. The vets who work with her are equally wonderful, and her staff cares about animals in a way I've never before seen. There is love and personal caring that can't be matched. People come from all over northern Michigan to Indian River Vet. There are three local vets who rotate for after hours and weekend on-call emergencies, so there is always someone to get to. I can't say enough about their level of expertise and compassionate care, and highly recommend them.
