Follow-up

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

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

We do not vaccinate or do any procedures other than that for which your 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.
