Our goal is to practice the highest quality medicine and surgery with compassion and an emphasis on client education. The entire WAH health care team is committed to providing personal attention to the unique concerns of each individual pet owner.

It was a heartbreaking decision to be made suddenly, and Dr. Jim and staff were so very gentle and understand with both me and my Vizsla. Great dignity in his passing, and compassion for me at losing him.

Great staff. Dr Joni is the best vet I’ve ever taken a pet to. She is superb with our house bunny, and very compassionate.

We recently brought our pug, Duke, to the Whitefish Animal Hospital for an exam for a back injury. He was not a patient there, but we were not pleased with the vet he was seeing. They took him in immediately and gave him all of there attention. What we didn’t realize was that he also had a brain injury. (By the way, the nearest MRI for an animal is 6 hours away!) It was too late for our little guy. We lost him 2 weeks after the initial fall. Dr. Jim and his staff were so loving and comforting. Even though they had just met us. I will always be grateful for being there for us and our little Duke.

I have been coming to WFAH since 2003 & I cannot say enough wonderful things about the entire staff! They are an amazing group of compassionate and incredibly skilled people that I am fortunate to have in my corner. I am so grateful for all of the services they provide- from excellent veterinary care to emotional support from all members of the team. A special thank you to Dr. Jim Thompson for his genuine care, concern, and generosity. I have and will continue to refer everyone to Whitefish Animal Hospital. With so much gratitude!

We brought our 3 year old lab in and the staff were kind and the doctor was very informative on how and when his allergic reaction might clear up. I was very satisfied with the care my dog received here and I would recommend this hospital to anyone with a pet, be it for a yearly exam, or an emergency. I plan to return for any and all care for my pup. Thanks WAH! We’re so grateful for all your help.

Dr. Jim is the best vet ever. Listens to my wishes for my dog, gives the best care, would recommend him (and the other staff) to anyone, and I do, when asked.
