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.

“We love Riverbend. The staff is the best, everyone is highly knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. They also keep great records, which is helpful if you are not great at record-keeping, yourself.”
