Frequently Asked Questions About THRIVE Affordable Vet Care
How is THRIVE different from other vets?
At THRIVE we offer the services, medicines, diagnostic tests and equipment that our clients need and use most often at a substantial discount. By spending our time and money delivering superior, essential care through routine exams, vaccines, illnesses, and non-emergency surgeries, we keep costs down and overhead low and pass the savings on to you. It’s our mission to continue providing quality pet care at affordable prices to eliminate lapses in routine care.
How can THRIVE offer the same quality services, medicines and vaccines for less?
We created a more streamlined business model so that we can invest in the things that matter most—the best people, protocols and medications. We never sacrifice when it comes to quality. We consistently partner with providers of the newest, quality medicines and vaccines, including the new 3 yr protocol in place now for the DHLPP/DHPP (Distemper/Parvo vaccine) and FVRCP (feline upper respiratory). We take pride in delivering quality at an affordable price.
What other services does THRIVE Affordable Vet Care offer?
At THRIVE we treat all of the most common problems dogs and cats routinely face. Check out our complete list and description of services for detailed information about the symptoms and ailments we can address. If your pet’s problem isn’t listed give us a call, we may still be able to help.
What if I just need a Pet Exam? How much is it?
Our nose-to-tail exam is just $25! If an exam reveals that your pet needs additional tests or medications, it’s our policy to provide you with an estimate in advance, no surprises. We’ll discuss every treatment option so that you can choose the highest quality, most affordable solution.
Do I need an appointment?
Appointments are recommended. But the most important thing is that your pet gets the care they need. If you’re on a really tight schedule, we do suggest calling ahead before stopping by, because some days and times might be busier than others. Even so, we’ll try to find a way to work you in so that your pet can be seen and you can move forward to deal with the rest of your day. We also offer morning drop offs, so you can leave your pet with us if you need to run errands or go to work.
Do I really need to have my pet vaccinated?
Absolutely! Proper vaccination is one of the biggest reasons pets today enjoy such long, happy lives. Without regular vaccinations, your pet can contract any one of a dozen common ailments and deadly diseases (some of which can be passed on to humans) that vaccines prevent. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
How long is my appointment going to take?
Routine exams and standard visits typically take no more than 20 minutes of your time. However, our goal is superior care, so we will devote whatever amount of time is needed to make sure your pet gets the exceptional treatment you expect, and they deserve.
What paperwork should I bring with me?
Vaccine records and medical history are very important. We don’t want to over, or under medicate a pet and records really help us avoid that. If you are visiting THIRVE for the first time and can provide a medical history, please bring that and your pet’s vaccine records with you. To save time, or If you are already a client, you can easily access your pet’s records or provide information about your pet’s medical history online.
How do I know what my pet needs?
Basically, your pet needs to start life on the right paw. Your pet needs essential care and routine exams to stay healthy. We make it a top priority to provide high quality vaccine packages so you can see just how affordable routine care can be. But in the event that your pet displays signs of some illness, we’re just a phone call away. Please call us. We’ll help determine exactly what kind of care your pet needs for the situation at hand, or based on their previous history.
When should I bring my new pet in?
As soon as possible. Even if they are not due for vaccines for a few weeks, it is important to have your new family member checked out. We can help determine if there are any health problems that might need to be addressed before being vaccinated, and what their optimum vaccine schedule should be.

Brought my 5 year old pup in yesterday for a tooth extraction. All of the vet techs were extremely friendly and helpful throughout this whole process, and were very gentle with my anxious dog. They are straightforward with you and don’t cut any corners. Highly recommend!!! Very affordable!!! I got quoted 3x the amount THRIVE charged me at VCA for the exact same surgery.
No wait, very kind front desk staff. We made an appointment online and everything went smoothly. Very affordable services, really good deal on a wellness check. We got answers to all of our pupper questions, and the staff was very professional and caring. We really worried our skittish pup would be scared but they did really well putting him at ease!
We just love our team at Thrive! We have been going to Thrive for our vet care for years now and have been very happy. But this most recent experience stands above the rest for sure! Last week we found out our sweet rescue pup is heartworm positive. We were just beside ourselves! Many, our vet tech, took so much time and was so patient listening to us and explained the ins-and-outs of what our fur baby is going through, how the treatment is working and why certain medications are used, etc. She answered all of our questions with kindness and patience. I could tell not only that we are in the best of hands but that Mandy truly has a passion for animals and their families. Thanks Mandy and Thrive!
