Petersen Pet Hospital broke ground on a new building at 1031 Kacena Road in Hiawatha, Iowa in September. The new building will be approximately 9580 sq. ft.

This new location is designed to better serve our clients and patients with additional exam rooms, a large comfort room, a special dental suite, surgery suite, intensive care unit, isolation ward, luxury dog and cat boarding, and additional parking.

Luxury dog boarding will be new to this facility.  The suites will have views of the pond and the woods located to the east of the building and each suite will be private and decorated with a theme.  We currently have cat condos, but the new facility will offer the cats a beautiful view of the pond and the wildlife in the area while they stay with us.

“To enable us to provide the best care for our patients, it was important to us to expand the size of our hospital to include such things as an intensive care unit for improved monitoring of our patients, an isolation ward to keep contagious patients separate from other patients, and a comfort room to  provide our clients with a quiet area for pet euthanasia to name a few,” says Dr. Brad Petersen.
