Announcing Dr. Hubbard’s Retirement Party

Dr. Hubbard started his veterinary career and opened Cedarwood Veterinary Hospital with his wife, Doris, in 1978. With the increasing demand for after-hours veterinary care in Central Alberta, he opened the doors to the Animal Emergency Hospital in 2009.

Dr. Hubbard has been actively involved in many areas of his professional organizations. He has served as president of the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association and supports the Veterinary Program at the University of Calgary. This involvement resulted in Cedarwood Veterinary Hospital becoming part of the Distributed Veterinary Teaching Hospital for the University of Calgary.

In the summer of 2016, Dr. Hubbard decided to sell both Cedarwood Veterinary Hospital and Animal Emergency Hospital to Dr. Dagmar Schouten and Ronnel Palmer, RVT so he could start slowing down and begin his transition towards retirement.

We would like you to join us on Saturday October 14, 2017 from 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM at Cedarwood Veterinary Hospital to help us wish Dr. Hubbard all the best in his retirement.
