Dr. Thorsgard was not always my vet, but when mine retired (a man I dearly love and think is smarter than anyone in veterinary medicine) I asked him who do you recommend I go to now? He said without a doubt, the best and most knowledgeable vet in Bemidji is Dr. Eric Thorsgard at Animal Care Clinic.
Fate intervened and sent me to him quicker than I’d planned when my Maltese, Bailey, was diagnosed at the University of Mn. with a rare brain disease they said was not curable or treatable and that he would die within a month. I searched the Internet and found a specialist in Boston treating this disease and armed with information, I met with Dr. Thorsgard and asked if he would work with the specialist and me in an attempt to help Bailey. He jumped right on board into territory he was somewhat previously unfamiliar with and two years later, I still have my Bailey.
Dr. Thorsgard made himself available at all times for me even in the middle of the night on occasion. He worked Bailey in for urgent blood testing, emergency hospitalization from various chemo problems, and worked dilligently to always meet every request of the specialist. The office staff has become family to me and I will always appreciate their dilligent efforts as well to accomodate last minute needed help.
My other two dogs (one who has passed now) receive excellent care when needed from basic yearly exams to major dental surgery to diabetes control. Dr. Thorsgard, the very important office staff, and all the wonderful technicians who work together to operate Animal Care Clinic treat my furry family with such gentless and compassion.
I feel the utmost confidence in taking my “other family” to Animal Care Clinic and would recommend anyone do the same. Cost of care is reasonable and evenly matched to other clinics in town, but the care animals receive there is priceless.
We couldn't be more pleased with the care you have given our dogs at your clinic. No matter what the problem, they have been well cared for. We would never hesitate to send anyone to your clinic.
Thank you, R & L
