Rick Heller, DVM, CVA

Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, Dr. Heller attended the University of Colorado and received his undergraduate bachelor of science degree in 1977. With a strong interest in world travel, Dr. Heller went to Torino, Italy where he attended Veterinary school and received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Dr. Heller joined the staff of Huron Animal Hospital in 1988 and developed such a positive and long lasting relationship with his clients that he decided to purchase Huron Animal Hospital. He assumed ownership in 1996.

Dr. Heller met his wife Helen in Torino, Italy. They are the proud parents of Tasha and Tazio. Dr Heller and his family share their home with their three rescued cats, “Cleo,” “Mia,” “Baci,” a dog “Zurra,” and two birds. In addition, he enjoys hiking, gardening, and traveling with his family.

Dogs and cats are not the only pets Dr. Heller enjoys working with; he also enjoys pocket pets, birds, reptiles, and many other “exotic” species. After many years of treating patients with chronic conditions requiring long-term use of medicine, Dr. Heller sought out a non-chemical method to treat these conditions and to provide comfort and relief. He received his acupuncture certification in 2007. Dr. Heller strives to provide a wide variety of treatment options for both his clients and patients.
