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

My cat got an eye infection and our regular vet didn’t have an opening quick enough. We got to see Dr Megan who was so wonderful with Fluffy. Everybody was wonderful, and we even got a follow up call to see if everything was ok. I highly recommend this clinic!
Airdrie Animal Clinic (now Thrive) were incredibly kind and well priced. When we had to put down our family dog they were supportive and gave her a dignified passing. They also saved some of her fur and took her paw prints for us to keep. Although a difficult experience, we were touched by how thoughtful they were. We will bring our other fur babies in the future.
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.

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.
