Practice Philosophy: Oshtemo Veterinary Hospital, Kalamazoo MI

Oshtemo Veterinary Hospital was first established in 1972 and has provided 40 years of quality pet care services to families in Portage and Kalamazoo County, Michigan. A mainstay of the area and an active organization in the greater Kalamazoo community, our practice has been under the sole ownership and direction of Dr. Del Heckaman since 2001. Dr. Heckaman started at Oshtemo Veterinary Hospital in 1986, became a partner in 1990, and in the decade since has been working with our veterinary staff to further the hospital in accordance with our original mission statement.

About Oshtemo Veterinary Hospital

We have always believed in being a warm, friendly, and inviting practice that is able to meet all the medical needs of your beloved pet family members. But while it is necessary that we remain capable on the technical level, we feel what’s really most important is our ability to get to know our clients and their pets—forging real bonds with patients and their owners throughout their lives. When we take on new clients to become their pet’s regular veterinarian, we’re in it for the long haul. Our practice’s strengths shine when we get to care for a patient throughout the lifespan, puppy- or kittenhood to adulthood.

Our Mission: Providing the Very Best Pet Care

Our mission is simple: to provide the very best quality care to patients; to accomplish this by maintaining a caring hospital that is a reflection of an informed and considerate staff; and to treat our clients better than ourselves. We aim to provide the best medical and surgical care to our patients, with the continued awareness that clients are our friends as much as customers. We value your business, and so we will always treat you with courtesy and patience. We’re glad you’re here, and we hope that you’ll stay.

We invite you to call us to ask any questions or to schedule an appointment for your pet.

I have been taking my beloved animals to Oshtemo Veterinary Hospital for over 12 years. I was never able to have children so my animals are my kids. Dr. Del Heckaman and his highly trained staff handle my animals with kind and gentle care. I have recommended Oshtemo Veterinary Hospital to many people down through the years. I highly endorse them because they are the best! If I ever move out of state I will still bring my pets back to Oshtemo Veterinary Hospital. ~ Cherie W.quote
