If you’ve found this website, I know you want the best for your pets. But separating good information from internet hype is a challenge for all of us. NPHQ Veterinarian is here to help.

Hi, I’m TB Thompson DVM. I’ve been a licensed, practicing small animal veterinarian for over 20 years.

TB Thompson DVM

After graduating from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, I practiced the conventional veterinary medicine I learned in school. Like so many of my colleagues, I became frustrated by the limitations of surgery, steroids and antibiotics. There were so many animals with chronic conditions that I couldn’t really help.

I’ve always been interested in what the natural world has to offer humans and animals to support our healthy bodies. Out of curiosity, I spent hundreds of hours learning about Chinese herbs, acupuncture and therapeutic nutrition. I learned to slow down and look at pet health from a different perspective.

There is a lot of misinformation about alternative/integrative medicine and conventional veterinary medicine. My goal is to present a balanced and truthful version of what is currently known.
