This is a really nice facility! I took my dog to get her annuals and an exam. She was in and out. They’re very accommodating to your pet’s needs. My dog is allergic to Lepto and they were able to kennel her for an hour just to make sure she didn’t have an allergy attack. The staff is super friendly and able to answer any of your concerns. And you cannot beat these prices. It would’ve cost me twice as much at the actual vet. Will definitely go back!

HIGHLY, IMPRESSED! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! This vet and its staff are absolutely wonderful! From the moment you walk in, not only does it smell like a spa, the front desk staff are so kind and welcoming. Always greet you, as well as your pet, making both of you feel very comfortable!! They care very much about you and your pet, they take the time out to cover every aspect of your visit and answer any questions that you may have!! It is also very difficult to find a good quality vet as well as an affordable vet in the city of New Orleans and this vet is BOTH!! :) The doctors and technicians are very knowledgeable and know exactly what to do for your pets needs!! My pup has always been nervous at the vet but when I brought her here, her tail was wagging the entire time, she was giving everyone kisses, and the technicians were so gentle with her during her exam. She had no idea she even got vaccines. I have absolutely found my new veterinarian!! I have seen both Dr. Raaphorst and Dr. Stafford and I absolutely recommend BOTH of them as they are both so thorough and me and my girl love them both!!

Wonderful doctors and staff at Thrive!! Always willing to bend over backwards to help you while providing exceptional care for all of the animals that come through the door. I can't say enough good things about them. If you want to feel welcomed and have the best medical attention for your pets by doctors who honestly care then this is your place. They truly love their work and it shows in how they care for our animals!
