Thanks for visiting my website!  I'm Dr. Carla A. Thompson, and I started Paisano Animal Clinic in Las Cruces in 1988, after graduating in 1987 from Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

I originally started the practice as a house call service, because so many pets don't like to ride in the car, and many owners have such hectic schedules that it's hard to take their pets into a clinic. 
I am still not making house calls during the COVID-19 pandemic.
(The following information is not relevant at this time:  I still offer house calls for physical exams, vaccinations, bloodwork, at-home euthanasias, etc., but now I also have a stationary practice for those clients who choose to come in.  It also allows me the ability to hospitalize sick patients, and perform surgeries, labwork, and other services that are more difficult in a house call setting.)

Thank you for taking the time to read about the veterinary practice and the services I offer. I welcome your comments and suggestions. Please contact me at (575)523-7606, or by e-mail (easiest...we don't have to play phone tag, and you don't have to talk to my voice mail!) at paisanomac@gmail.com to schedule an appointment.

Due to an unfortunately large number of missed appointments, I am now requiring a $50 deposit when making an appointment for a new client, or a $50 missed appointment fee, if not cancelled at least 24 hours in advance, for all other clients.  It is not fair to the clients who could have taken the appointment, nor to me.  Thank you for your understanding.

Are you a client, or have you visited the clinic before?  I'd like to hear what you think.  You can rate and review my services on Google!
