Annual physical exams are important to your pet. Your canine and feline friends age at a much faster rate than humans. Annual physical exams, and for older pets semiannual physical exams, along with diagnostic testing, help us to diagnose and treat conditions in early stages.

There may be a time when the Doctor will suggest diagnostic testing. Laboratory testing may be recommended before surgery to be sure that there are no underlying conditions that may compromise your pet while under anesthesia. The doctor will also indicate the importance of testing to diagnose or rule out other health concerns.
At Hubbardston Veterinary Clinic, every measure is taken to ensure your pet’s safety during anesthesia. An anesthetic protocol is tailored to each pet’s specific needs. Your pet is monitored through the procedure with IV fluids being administered to help maintain blood pressure and ensure a safe and speedy recovery. A veterinary technician is in constant attendance to monitor your pet’s vital signs including heart rate, oxygen levels, blood pressure and body temperature. We strive to provide the safest and most comfortable experience for each patient.
