My husband and I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Candace Richardson, Veterinarian at the Thrive Clinic in Watauga, TX. Our beloved 19 1/2 year old cat, Sunny, had a massive seizure a couple months ago. Prior to finding Dr. Richardson, we had gone to see a couple of other vets and was very disappointed in their service, prognosis and interaction with our cat. We truly wish we would have found Dr. Richardson sooner. From the first moment we met her, we could see the compassion, knowledge and the love she has for all animals she treats on a daily basis. Dr. Candace prescribed medications for Sunny that gave us an opportunity to see him walk, purr and even use his litter box again. We actually had a great week with Sunny before he started having seizures again. When it came time to euthanize him, we knew we’d want her to do it. She was so gentle with Sunny, she informed us of every step of what would happen in his last moments here on Earth. She gave us all the time we needed to say goodbye and we’ll never forget it. Thank you, Dr. Richardson, for helping us through one of the hardest decisions we’ve had to make, and making us and Sunny feel comfortable throughout the entire process. We’ll always be grateful. Sam & Robin M.

I absolutely LOVE THRIVE!! They are very affordable and take wonderful care of my pets. They love my fur babies as their own! Dr. Jones & Alejandra are great with all the animals! I especially love the front desk clerk/tech Sydney she is warm and gentle with any animal that walks through the door. She is amazing! I have never been to a Vet that had such caring hearts for animals! They are someone you can truly trust! Thank you!

I have been to two Thrive locations but the Watauga location is closer and the staff is very friendly. Sydney is always so welcoming. We have seen a couple of techs and they were all great but Stephanie handled all of our dogs very well. We have a 1 year old pit that is very anxious and weary of people but she was patient with her and made her feel comfortable. Their vets are awesome, quick, and thorough.
