Dr. Hekking became interested in vet medicine in high school when his dog passed away suddenly.

In that moment, he decided he did not want others to also experience that same pain. Dr. Hekking’s goal is to provide pets with quality vet medicine so that they can live a long, healthy, and happy life. He serves as an advocate for animals and a teammate to owners. He loves interacting with clients and being a part of the bond they share with their furry companions. Dr. Hekking earned his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University and his veterinary degree from Virginia Tech. When he is not at work, he enjoys spending time with his wife, three daughters, and dog (Wrigley). He loves to watch and play sports of all kinds and enjoys fishing.
