Thank you for considering Paisano Animal Clinic for your pet's veterinary care.  I am Carla A. Thompson, DVM, a 1987 graduate of Colorado State University.

A Full-Service Clinic

I started my practice in 1988 making house calls, then expanded in 1996 to include a clinic in part of my home.  When COVID hit, I stopped making house calls; I don't anticipate resuming them in the future.  

Each patient is treated as if it were one of my own pets; I take the time to do a thorough exam, and to answer any questions you may have.  In addition to routine preventive care, surgery and dental procedures are also routinely performed in the clinic.  I have a full pharmacy, and can have prescription diets that your pet may need for specific medical conditions delivered directly to your home.  Please call ahead to request a refill on medication before coming to the clinic; I'll have everything prepared for your arrival to minimize your waiting time.

Preventive Care for the Caring Owner

My philosophy of veterinary medicine is one of preventive care; I want to do everything possible to make sure your pet has a long, happy, healthy relationship with you.  To achieve this goal, I will make individualized recommendations about vaccinations, surgeries and oral health care; food and medical products available to help ensure your pet's well-being; advice about obedience training and behavior problems; and any other concerns you may have.

Due to an unfortunately large number of missed appointments, I am now requiring a $61 deposit when making an appointment for a new client.  There is also a $61 missed appointment fee for any client who does not cancel at least 24 hours in advance.  It is not fair to the clients who could have taken the appointment, nor to me.  Thank you for your understanding.

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 voicemail!) at paisanomac@gmail.com to schedule an appointment.

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!
