      We usually go to the New Albany office and see Dr Hunt or Dr Childers but our new puppy had gotten really sick during the Christmas holiday and Dr Thompson was the vet on call, if it wasn’t for him, his son Josh and caring staff, our sweet Henleigh wouldn’t be with us. Dr. Thompson never gave up on her and did everything he could to get her well. Everyone at both Willow Bend and New Albany Animal Clinic are wonderful and care for our fur babies as if they were their own.

      Dr. Thompson was there for us on that fateful Saturday night when we lost our little fur child Frankie. We couldn't have asked for a more kind and caring doctor. I just want to say thank you for going above and beyond for us! It really means a lot!

      Shout out to Willow Bend Animal Clinic for taking such good care of our puppy Bear. This was the second time they have pulled him through. First with parvovirus and now mushroom poisoning. We are very fortunate to have such skilled and compassionate veterinarians and staff in our area.
