Regular Examinations

We strongly encourage annual exams, as well as semi-annual exams for some of our aging population. As a matter of survival, animals often do not show outward early signs of disease. A regular physical examination is invaluable in that it allows early diagnosis and assessment of health problems. This gives us a wider selection of treatment options and often an improved long-term outcome for your pet.

“No matter how long you have your pet, it is never long enough. A million thanks for all for the great care. You went above and beyond.”

Adele & George, Enfield

“Okay, alright, we admit it — we all like coming to Riverbend, not just the pets.”

Chris and Tammy, Leverett

“We are so grateful for all of the hard work you do! Thanks so much for being the best!”

Pete and Luke, Greenfield

“I asked my mom to write and tell you how much I enjoyed meeting you today. Thanks for being so nice to me. I can’t wait to see you again. Purr, purr, purr!”

"Lucy", Holyoke

“The practice seems to center on providing comprehensive, loving care for animals, which you can learn easily by sitting in the waiting room talking to other happy pet parents.”

Nicole, East Longmeadow
