Heath Wiseman, DVM

Heath is a native of Bryant, SD. He attended Kansas State University for his undergraduate studies.  Heath earned  his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 1999 from Iowa State University. Heath became PennHIP certified in 2001. PennHIP helps identify the potential for hip dysplasia as early as 16 weeks of age. Early detection of hip laxity allows lifestyle changes to be made which may slow the onset of arthritis. More surgical options are available for correction of hip dysplasia when identified at a young age.

Heath is the one only veterinarian in Springfield, MO who is certified in the PennHIP procedure.

Heath was an associate veterinarian in Rocky Mount, NC before establishing Springfield Veterinary Center in July 2003.

The Wiseman Family

Heath and Cynthia met in veterinary school at Iowa State University.  They moved to North Carolina following graduation in 1999, seeking a warmer climate and a change of pace. They enjoyed North Carolina, but missed the Midwest.

Heath and Cynthia chose Springfield, Missouri based on several factors.  Springfield is a larger city without the large-city feel and is a short two hour drive from Cynthia's parents.   Southwestern Missouri also offers many outdoor activities.

Trokey Animal Hospital provided the perfect opportunity to get established in Springfield.  It provided a nice facility with an incredible staff and friendly, caring clients.  Heath and Cynthia purchased Trokey Animal Hospital in July 2003 and re-named it Springfield Veterinary Center. In 2015, the business was relocated to a more spacious, new facility at 330 East Battlefield. 

Heath and Cynthia extend their compassion and caring for animals into their own home. Their family has one cat, three dogs, and three horses.

The Wiseman kitty, Connor (named after event rider David O'Connor) was an accidental addition in 2002. He was intended to be the barn cat, but he was just too cute, and his survival skills were lacking. Thus, he became an indoor kitty. He is now our welcoming committee and entertainment at the clinic. You're almost guaranteed to meet him at some point during your visit. 

Reyes, named after Mets shortstop Jose Reyes, is a Labrador Retriever born in March 2007.  Shea is a Vizsla born in June 2009 and named after the stadium where the Mets played for many years. Chief is a "hand-me down" yellow Labrador Retriever who joined the family as a 2 year old in 2018. 

Dr. Cynthia Wiseman competes in horse trials and also trains horses. Varsity Blues (George) is her current competition horse.  Tucker, a 14.1h pony competes in Pony Club Mounted Games and Li'l Bit, a 12.3h pony, is just for a li'l bit of fun and games.

Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "We have a new 8 week Boston Terrier that we took to Springfield Vet yesterday for the first time. Absolutely pleased with the service, attitudes and genuine care shown to our little boy. The whole team was so professional, but took time to talk to you and explain everything. Dr Cynthia Wiseman is so wonderful, she sat in the floor did Logan's exam and played with him. What bedside manners. I will continue to use them, I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a caring and professional vet."
    Roi W.
  • "We absolutely love this vet clinic and the staff! The facilities are modern and always clean. Everyone is always so friendly and genuinely care for you and your animal- they make you feel as if you are apart of their family.

    Our boy, Samson, is a Rottie (and quite the problem child). We are usually in the clinic almost every other month for something and they are always so helpful and show great care and love for our pup! We are very picky/protective puppy parents, so we were very grateful to have found both Dr. Cynthia and Dr. Heath shortly after getting Samson.

    We have definitely found our "home" in the vet world, and would highly recommend to anyone who is currently looking!"

  • "I have taken my dog here since he was a puppy. The staff are so friendly and caring, a very clean place and they always get us in quickly. When we come in no one passes us without greeting my dog and I and they're never in a rush to get us out of there."
    ShealynR.
  • "We decided to start taking our new kitty here this past fall and we love it! He was not on his best behavior (to say the least) for his first appointment, and the staff was so patient and was still able to safely run his bloodwork and give him his vaccinations. Every service has been reasonably priced, and they did everything they possibly could to make sure that our little guy was off to a healthy start after we adopted him. What I love is that they really seem to focus on the small details, too, like trimming our cat's nails after remembering that I had expressed interest in doing so at a previous appointment, or supplementing his flea treatment with something to safely speed up the process. We will definitely keep coming here as long as we live in Springfield!"

  • "I have been taking my dog to SVC since 2012 and when I adopted my cat in 2015. I have never had a bad experience. We have seen Drs. Heath & Cynthia Wiseman and I love them both. Always professional, always take their time when looking my pets over, asking questions, and answering mine."

  • "We’ve been taking our Moose there for a few years now. After swallowing a toy when he was a puppy, getting fixed, having surgery on his eyelids a couple times, and most recently having a breed specific illness; I can I say I would recommend everyone to go here. They’ve taken the best care of our boy time and time again and went above and beyond."
