Our Team

We Put Your Pet First

Veterinary care from the heart.

We play. We chat. We share. At Petersen Pet Hospital in Hiawatha, 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.
