Follow-up

For Riverbend clients
Pre-op and post-op examinations are scheduled with Dr. Thomson. Once the pet has healed sufficiently from the surgery, care will be returned to the regular Riverbend doctor. All findings and treatment will be fully documented in the pet’s record as well as communicated directly to the regular doctor.

For referral clients
Dr. Thomson is dedicated to keeping the regular veterinarian informed at all times. He sends a report after every visit (pre-op exam, surgery, post-op exam). Once the pet has healed sufficiently from surgery, all care will return to the regular veterinarian.

We do not vaccinate referral patients or do any procedures other than that for which the pet was referred. Prior to the time of surgery, referral clients must sign a waver stating that they will not transfer future care of this pet (or any others they may have) to Riverbend.

“You have always treated her exceptionally well, and despite her being so “special” she loved all of you and you loved her back.”

Jim and Rosalee, Granby

“Dr. Thomson is the Dustin Pedroia of veterinary medicine — determined, committed, talented, the ultimate teammate in what has been a very long season. Thank you for all you have done to help Tilly (and us) along this long and bumpy journey.”

MJ and Anne, Sunderland

“I really could not have taken as good care of both Enzo and Chester without the education you all gave me. I am so grateful and I hope you all know what a great difference you made in my life and Enzo and Chester’s.”

Beth and Ernie, Northampton

“The communication, education and attention given to the pet owners before, during and after the surgery is so appreciated by our family.”

Lee Ann, Union, CT

“Thanks so much for taking such great care of Bearcat when he had his teeth out. He is now back to his high-jumping sweet self.”

Margot and Bri, Northampton
