Medical Services

At Riverbend Animal Hospital, our aim is to help you optimize your pet’s health and happiness for a lifetime.

Special bonds often begin with puppies and kittens but also form when adult pets start again in new homes. We enjoy nurturing these bonds and value building lifelong relationships with our clients and their pets.

Our medical team emphasizes the importance of core pet needs and encourages consistent preventive screening to identify subclinical problems. Our standards for quality veterinary medicine are high and delivered with compassion for you and your pet. We carefully review previous and current medical and behavioral history and concerns. Then, together with you, we review the options and create an individualized plan of care for your dog or cat.

Your pet’s well-being is our goal here at Riverbend. We are always pleased to welcome new clients and patients to our animal hospital, as well as see our old familiar friends.

“You are blessed with a wonderful gift, Dr. Thomson, not only in your expertise as a surgeon but in the way you interact with people.”

“Over and over again you have been available to us when our furry family members have had serious problems. It is always easier dealing with those tough times because of your love, caring, and compassionate ways.”
