Hub City Veterinary Clinic offers and encourages preventative medicine by means of early disease detection and wellness programs for adult and geriatric pets. With advances in medical care and nutrition your pets are living longer. As a result of this longevity your pet may experience problems with chronic illnesses and/or cancer. Early detection is vital to treatment and outcome of these issues. In addition to wellness exams, diagnostic testing (bloodwork, urinalysis, fecal exam, x-rays, etc) is recommended for screening and diagnosis. Our veterinarians are here to answer any questions you may have regarding these diagnostic capabilities for your pets.

Dogs and cats age faster than humans, and they cannot tell you when things are wrong. Pets aged 7 years and older are susceptible to ailments such as cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, liver and gastrointestinal disorders, osteoarthritis, dental disease, and ocular abnormalities. Not only do we practice high quality traditional medicine, but we also offer a wide variety of complimentary medicinal modalities to treat various disorders. Listed below are clinical signs that can be a red flag for your pet:

  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Excessive drinking or urination

  • Skin lumps, growths or irritation
  • Bad breath, plaque on teeth or bleeding gums
