See what our fantastic clients are saying about Thrive Vet Care.

I appreciate how the staff work with me and my pup buddy. He is reactive to other animals and I like being able to keep him in the car till they have a room ready for us. The staff are amazing, rooms are clean and the veterinarian always takes good care of us. Answering questions and taking time to make buddy comfortable.
Every time I bring Jack to Airdrie Animal Clinic he is treated so well and you can tell each and everyone love animals so much. My heart and I know Jack's heart is always happy when he comes in through the door. Thank you all so much you are amazing. Cheers Janet and Jack 🐾🐾🐾🐾
Outstanding clinic. They are always willing to accommodate us with our ole’ boy Bentley. Dr. Jeff Dand is a top notch vet. Hard to match his attention to detail and genuine care.
Seriously the best and most compassionate vet clinic I’ve been to. They aren’t all about the money, they genuinely care about the animals. They have been nothing but helpful for me, my dogs & my families dogs. Dr Monika & Dr Andrea are so knowledgeable & willing to help however they can. I haven’t seen the other doctors, but I’m sure they’re great too. Can’t say enough good things about this clinic to truly express how grateful I am for them. Truly the best.
Dr. Andrea and Dr. Zook are the vets for my two Huskies (they each have their own quirks so they prefer different vets). You guys always do a fantastic job of scheduling my dogs with my preferred vets. I receive excellent information and knowledge without feeling pushed to any specific products or treatments, although at times where I do ask for an opinion because I don't know what to do I am given the professional opinion of what they'd recommend. You always accomodate appointment changes and make sure all my potential concerns are addressed before I leave, I never feel rushed out. You also do a great job of moving slow with anxious dogs and keep yourselves safe, and allow me to help with procedures when it is appropriate. When my boy was in for his neuter I pre-warned that he's an escape artist that breaks out of crates, upon pick-up I was told that one of the staff chose to spend her lunch sitting and cuddling with him, as I was so shocked to not be called back ASAP saying they need him outta there haha. The admin/techs/assistants have also always been friendly to communicate with.

Exotic and pocket pets typically refer to a variety of small, non-traditional domestic animals kept as pets, which are distinct from common household pets like dogs and cats. Here’s a breakdown:

Exotic Pets: This category includes a broad range of animals that are not commonly domesticated. It often encompasses:

  • Reptiles: Such as snakes, lizards, and tortoises.
  • Birds: Including parrots, canaries, and exotic finches.
  • Small Mammals: Like ferrets, hedgehogs, and sugar gliders.
  • Aquatic Pets: Such as exotic fish and amphibians like frogs and salamanders.
  • Invertebrates: Including tarantulas and certain types of insects.


Pocket Pets: These are small mammals that can literally fit into your pocket or easily be held in your hands, making them quite portable. Common examples include:

  • Rodents: Such as hamsters, gerbils, mice, and rats.
  • Small Rabbits: Often considered pocket pets due to their smaller size compared to larger rabbit breeds.
  • Guinea Pigs: Known for their docile nature and minimal space requirements.

Both exotic and pocket pets require specific care, diets, and living environments that cater to their unique needs, often differing significantly from those of more traditional pets.

Absolutely! At Thrive Vet Care, we understand that pet care costs can sometimes be unexpected.
