Dr. Jill Sandler, DVM - Owner
It’s been over 20 years since Dr. Jill Sandler took over the reins at Heartland Animal Clinic. Dr. Sandler, a 1984 graduate of the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine, had previously received a Bachelor of Science degree in biology at K-State. Upon graduation, Dr. Sandler served a two-year stint at Gage Animal Hospital in Topeka. She and her husband Andy then moved to the Kansas City area where she practiced at the Emergency Veterinary Clinic in Overland Park. She also served as a relief veterinarian for local animal clinics. In 1989, she became an associate Veterinarian at what was then called Santa Fe Animal Clinic. Two years later the clinic’s owner retired; Dr. Sandler purchased the practice and renamed it Heartland Animal Clinic to reflect its regional scope, as well as our mission to deliver compassionate care. Dr. Sandler has been married to Andy for over 30 years, and has a cat and a French Bulldog.
