Everyone at Thrive Vet has gone above and beyond my expectations! They are always so nice and so super helpful! They did a great job with my dogs neuter and always answer all my questions I have! Can’t recommend enough!!

These folks were so hard. They had 2 doctors transfer and in the meantime as busy as they are I still got not one but two separate phone calls checking to see how Katy and I are. We had a rough week and an issue at an ER and these folks at thrive in Santee really cared and took the time to call and listen. I'm over the moon to finally find a vet clinic where the care and comfort of your pet is the priority.

I haven't actually taken any of my family members there but after reading the reviews, I am honestly afraid to. Petco has never been known for being "affordable" either so I expect the lower office call fee is offset by higher costs for other services. I also like to meet the vet who will be seeing my babies. You can't do that here.

Very friendly staff, reasonably priced, & they always are great with our pets. My only issue is that they advertise being open on weekends, yet everytime I try booking a weekend appointment,they aren't open on weekends. Makes it tough for people like me that work Mon-Fri...

Hi, my kitten is 8 weeks old. I was referred to Thrive by my boss at work who has five cats. Of course I am looking for a good quality, good value, professionalism, responsive and reliability. I will call to make my first appointment soon.

We have gone to thrive for a little over a year but today we unfortunately have to cut ties. My husband had an appointment and he was running behind so I called to notify them. They told me it was ok and said that he needed to get to the door by 3:30. He was standing there waiting at the door at 2:28 while they were checking in someone else in. I called again and said my husband is waiting at the door like the person on the phone had told us to do and she told me it was too late and accused me of lying and wouldn’t see our dog. We have had a lot of scheduling issues with Thrive and we will not be returning. They may be affordable but I will happily pay more money to get better service.

I brought my 13 year minpin in today. I was pleasantly surprised by the timely care, the reasonable prices, and the empathy the staff showed for my dog Bella! I will be returning with Bella in the near future for Dr. DeAngelo to repair Bellla’s hernia. Thrive Vet Care is the best! Pass the word! Phil P.

I feel differently about Thrive now. I went to two locations after the first bad experience. This location in Santee with Dr. Jungman was a good experience. I had called various Thrives to see which had the soonest appointment and ended up here. I researched as much as possible before calling why my puppy was sick. Later, I knew It was a UTI and I needed to get a urinalysis to test, and amoxicillin to treat. I got my puppy to feel better with cranberry and d-mannose, but she most likely needed the vet visit for amoxicillin for the UTI bacterial infection. Dr Jungman listened to me and did the urine collection and sent it to the lab. The next day she called me with the results, that my puppy has a "significant" bacterial infection. She said she can do a more extensive test, but it runs at 250.00. She also suggested the same thing I choose, which was to do the two weeks of antibiotics and do a retest when she completes them. So I made the appointment and will do the urinalysis for 60.00. If the test results don't show improvement, then I may do the extensive testing; as the sample at the lab can be tested further. Thank you Dr. Jungman for being on the level with people and caring about their pets. ~Zeppelyn's mom

The place that was here before would give shots without a pet exam/fee. I was surprised to find out my dogs had an exam along with their shots. Oh covid!

You can't beat the prices. The office visits $25 and they ended up waving that for for me. I took a friend's dog and it was in a bad bad way and they were really really good with it explained everything. What was going on Route me. The prescription is it so that I could take him to Vons or use pet meds so I could get a better price and didn't charge me for the office visit. So that was great. I've never gone to a vet. That didn't charge me for the office visit.

We had a puppy that didn’t loose it’s baby teeth known as shark mouth and also needed neutered. Pre surgical lb work was done and they proceeded with a long surgery removing 20 teeth. At the end of the day we were told that there was some elevated kidney level results that they noticed from pre surgical lab work. Turns out that the surgery should have never been done according to another vet we took our very sick puppy to. Our puppy had to be put down because of this and we we confronted Thrive about how they handled our puppies case they apologized and offered to refund the thousand of dollars we spent. They even failed to have a doctor show up for the follow up appointment. Now months later we receive a letter from doctor d’angelos insurance saying they are not responsible and will not be refunding our money. Thrive knew the risk and decided to make the money rather than put the health and safety of my dog first. Go else ware don’t let Thrive kill your pet for profit as they did to mine.

It's a great place to take your pets. My girl and I took our 8 month- old giant orange tabby here to get checked out and microchipped. We did have to make a reservation about two weeks in advance but this is because our availability is limited since we work nights and sleep during the day. It was very easy - drive up, call them to let them know you're there, then they come out and get your furry buddy. Few minutes later, I get a call from the vet letting me know of the diagnosis, you receive a text link to pay, then they bring out your babies. That's it! Simple, painless, and convenient. Oh, and also very affordable. They're not kidding about that part.

Needed to use their veterinary services on 2 separate occasions and was not able to book an appointment within 3 weeks. Why am I paying for monthly service if I can't even use it?!
