Truly a great loving caring vet office. I moved here from Atlanta with my baby bells and was very hesitant about finding a vet in a new city, but the amazing staff at thrive eased my worries. They are truly kind and loving with my baby girl. I took her for her yearly shots and what not and that experience went great the sweet vet tech John I believe was nothing but understanding of my budget a(offered me solutions to help save money with the visit, saved me a total of $60) as well he provided excellent service to not only my dog but me. About two weeks later baby bells experienced a bad ear infection due to allergies and heat. I popped in without an appointment, just needing to get relief for bells. It was about to be lunch break but the kind staff fit me in right away, didn't complain and offered smiles and reassurance. When I came i was thinking it wasn't anything but a routine ear infection, I'd get drops and be on my way in and out for less than $50. Her infection was a lot worse than I thought and I was beside myself when she told me how much it would cost I had just sent a decent amount of money on her and I'm a young professional and not made of money, I expressed how badly I wanted to treat my baby but how it would effect other bills I had Dr Stafford did everything she could do to get the bill down without sacrificing the care and treatment provided to my dog. This is the best vet I've ever had and I've had baby bells for 5 years now. They are so loving and sweet and really have the best intentions for you and your baby. Thank you so much to all the staff, Dr Stafford, john, Shawn, and reana. I'll be a loyal customer for sure and recommended everyone to visit this amazing establishment!!!!

These people really care about your pet. Our cat Socks was really sick. To the point I was in panic mode and so was my Autistic son. They were very kind and put us all at ease. After 2 shots and some much needed rest in mommy's bed. Socks was back to his old self in just a few days. They even texted me to follow up on his progress the next day. I would definitely recommend Thrive Affordable Vet Care to anyone. And best yet the visit fee was just $25 of course anything extra needed is an additional charge. But my furry son Socks is worth it! I can thank them enough...

Dr. Stafford, Shawn and John are literally amazing!!!!!! They legitimately saved my dogs life Sunday morning and I am INCREDIBLY grateful for their fast action and expertise! My girl needed basically emergency surgery and they came through for me with flying colors! Everything was carefully explained to me and the price was unbeatable! I seriously can not recommend them enough!!! I will be taking all my pets there in the future! (And on top of all that my car wouldn’t start after I picked up my dog and John offered to jump start my car for me!) They were excellent at following up with me and responded promptly to all phone calls and messages!
