Heidi Fritz, D.V.M., C.V.A., is a lifelong Harford County resident, and has strong ties to her community. Both Dr. Fritz’s family members and her husband’s family members are small business owners in the Harford county community. Dr. Fritz received her Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, Pre-Veterinary Concentration, from the University of Delaware and her veterinary degree from North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. Dr. Fritz focuses on internal medicine, pain management, including Acupuncture and Tui-Na, and preventative medicine. She performs both general and orthopedic surgeries. In 2004, she became the owner of Aberdeen Veterinary Clinic, in Aberdeen, MD. She lives with her husband, Bob, their two children, George and Connie Ann, and several four-legged friends. The family has two dogs, three cats, forty beef cows, two beef steers for 4-H, and eighteen newborn calves (but that number is growing daily), four goats, and a peacock. The two Ragdoll cats at Aberdeen Veterinary Clinic, Tippy and Henry, belong to Dr. Fritz’s children.
Dr. Fritz now integrates Acupuncture, Tui-Na (acupressure and massage), and Chinese Food Therapy into the medical therapy offered at Aberdeen Veterinary Clinic. She studied over an additional 220 credit hours and has become certified in these forms of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) at the renowned Chi Institute of TCVM in Reddick, FL, under the supervision of Dr. Xie. In combination with the western medical practices learned at NCSU-CVM, Dr. Fritz is now able to offer additional treatment options by adding in eastern medical practices with Acupuncture, Tui-na, Food Therapy, and Chinese herbs. The benefits of the combination of eastern and western medicine therapies offers your family pets many possible treatment methods based on your pet’s needs and desires to provide the best possible therapy for each individual situation. Dr. Fritz is a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist, C.V.A., and is currently working on her Master’s of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (MS-TCVM).
