Veterinary care from the heart

We play. We chat. We share. At Petersen Pet Hospital in northeast Cedar Rapids, we understand that special bond between pet and person. As pet owners ourselves, we feel it too. And like you, we want the best possible veterinary care for our special friends.

Dr. Bradley Petersen has grown up around animals. He appreciates their quirky personalities and understands their needs. That’s why we give kittens, puppies and senior pets health screenings appropriate for their ages. We conduct wellness exams, dental cleanings, vaccine boosters, parasite testing and other veterinary services when pets are healthy and diagnostic exams, treatments and surgeries when they’re not.

We have an in-house pharmacy and an extensive lab to assist in your pet’s diagnosis. Led by Dr. Petersen, our veterinarians are well educated and experienced. Most of all, they simply love animals. They are backed by a skilled support staff that is friendly and enthusiastic.

Please stop in to see us or contact us today to learn more about Petersen Pet Hospital and the way we give you the best veterinary care from the heart.
