Dr. Dulce Heelan Joins Block House Creek Animal Hospital
Block House Creek Animal Hospital is excited to announce that Dr. Dulce Heelan has joined the staff.
Originating from Chicago, IL, home of the Cubbies, cold weather, and deep dish pizza, Dr. Heelan realized her love for animals at a young age. This led to her working as a veterinary technician at a small animal practice in Round Lake, IL. She then attended Aurora University and received a BS in Health Science. Afterward, she went straight to the island of Saint Kitts and Nevis to attend Ross University in the Caribbean, where she and Dr. Blatchford - another fellow doctor at Block House Creek Animal Hospital - were in the same class. While in veterinary school, Dr. Heelan expanded her knowledge of all species, both big and small. She completed her clinical year at the University of Florida in May 2018 with interests in exotics, ruminants, and small animal medicine. Dr. Heelan is a lover of working dogs and has two German Shepherds, as well as a black cat she adopted from the island of Saint Kitts. On days off she enjoys spending time with her significant other and her animals by exploring the city of Austin.
We are very excited to have Dr. Heelan on the team here at Block House Creek Animal Hospital, and we look forward to everyone getting the chance to meet her.
Welcome, Dr. Heelan!
