"As a client of TAEM for the past 6 years, I can say we are beyond satisfied. Working with this team of veterinarians is seamless. We love our dedicated vet but when an emergency arises with a horse, we know that we get the same level of care with the on-call vet. We appreciate fast emergency responses and how the vets take their time with our horses. They are clearly horse people!
I admire that each TAEM vet pursues continuing education and embraces alternative therapies. We appreciate how the vets are able to provide treatment options with tremendous empathy for the horse and also for us too. TAEM vets are always clear and direct. We have tremendous confidence and faith in them, knowing they will refer us to the university when it is appropriate.
Thank you TAEM for being fantastic!"
"Operating a large sale horse program and show barn for many years, I know a good vet when I meet them. TAEM consistently provides our clients and their horses with unparalleled medical expertise, superior communication, cutting-edge technology, and a team perspective.
TAEM’s real-world experience means that they understand the different choices that we make depending on if a horse is an investment or going to a forever home. I feel empowered to make the right decision for the horse because my TAEM vet takes as much time as needed to present knowledge and educate me in a manner that is straightforward and honest.
I also respect Dr. Thompson’s leadership abilities in the practice. Dr. Thompson has a phenomenal understanding of his associates’ strengths, he allows them to flourish as individuals, and also guides the team to further their education in order to better complement one another. We appreciate that the vets do their research on new or alternative treatment options and embrace what works best for the horse."
"As a show barn, we credit our success over the years to having an exemplary team for each horse. We’ve used Dr. Thompson and his associates for over 17 years and they are an integral part of the team!
We really appreciate that each vet from TAEM understands performance horses and that we can lean on the individual associates when we need more specialized care. The guidance we receive from the vets at TAEM is incredible and we trust their opinion!"
