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.

“You were understanding of my fear and high level of anxiety throughout the process. I never felt rushed or dismissed at any question I had. Please know the wonderful impact you have in the world.”

Lisa, Wilbraham

“I’ve been to four different vets in the area looking for the one place that cares about my pup as much as I do. I found that place at Riverbend! I have been blown away by their level of professionalism, kindness, empathy and support. I will be forever thankful!”

“Magic could hardly wait to burst through the door to see you…a true testament to the kindness and care she got at Riverbend. Thank you for being such an amazing bunch…to Magic and to me.”
