Haw Creek Animal Hospital is a full-service facility with a reputation for affordable and compassionate small animal care. We work with dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, rabbits, rats, pocket pets and other small mammals, as well as other exotics and large animal species that can be transported to the hospital. And we see everything from wellness visits to "routine" medicine and dentistry, to urgent care and emergencies. Dr. Sinclair may also suggest or be willing to consider acupuncture, homeopathy, traditional Chinese herbal medicine, or other "alternative" modalities.

Many, if not most, surgical cases can be treated on an outpatient basis. We do, however, have the capacity to hospitalize sick or injured animals. Limited boarding is also available, especially for pets with special medical needs.

The hospital has a welcoming and comfortable reception area and waiting room, 3 exam rooms, a well-equipped surgery, and in-house laboratory and radiology. We hope your wait won't be long, but complex cases, walk-ins, and emergencies can conspire to ruin the best laid plans. So we'll try to keep our reception area interesting. Fred, the clinic cat, and our resident chinchillas will keep you entertained!

Haw Creek Animal Hospital Staff Profiles

Heather K. Sinclair, DVM

Dr. Heather K. Sinclair was introduced to clinical practice on both small and large animal patients as a technician for a small animal hospital and an equine surgical facility. Dr. Sinclair entered private practice as a veterinarian in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she continued her education by working with exotics and native wildlife.

Dr. Sinclair has had a long-standing interest in the non-Western modalities that have been practiced for years (or centuries) and she has progressively adopted those that make sense or that appear to work. During her tenure in Ann Arbor, she deepened her interest and expertise in these "alternative" modalities and developed her approach to integrating alternative and complementary modalities with conventional Western medicine approaches. On relocating to coastal Maine, Dr. Sinclair's medicine began to focus more on small animal patients, including routine wellness visits, internal medicine cases, emergency and critical care, and a variety of surgical procedures. In addition to seeing the practice's own patients on an emergency basis during and after business hours, she also worked as a relief veterinarian for a nearby emergency clinic for small and exotic animals.

In 2005 Heather moved to Asheville, NC where she purchased Haw Creek Animal Hospital in East Asheville. Here she continued to practice an integrated approach to veterinary medicine and continued to learn, gain more experience, and to expand her repertoire.

Dr. Sinclair has particular interests in acupuncture and other complementary modalities, oncology, and nutrition. A graduate of Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine, she also holds a B.S. in Animal Science from the University of New Hampshire. She is passionate about animal welfare and provides safety, love, and food for a large number of rescue animals, both at her home and her hospitals, and she travels abroad to developing countries to provide pro bono veterinary care to dogs and cats. An accomplished horsewoman, she competes in 3-day eventing and dressage.

Dr. Cindy Feiler has been part of Haw Creek Animal Hospital since 2004. She graduated from Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999. She enjoys working with pocket pets (especially rabbits), geriatrics, internal medicine, surgery, preventive care and wellness.

In her spare time she likes to hike, scrapbook, cook, and spend time with her two daughters and her husband, who is a family physician. She also likes to play with her dog: Shilo, 3 cats: Jerry, Marmalade, and Foam, Sir Marshmallow, her rabbit and her 2 frogs: Taddy and Lily.
