Dr. B Erik Thompson, DVM

AAMC Chief Veterinarian

Education: University of Georgia

Hometown: Long Island, NY

Pets: Corgi and Felines

Dr. Erik Thompson was born in New York on Long Island.  His mother was a biologist, so his interest in life sciences was firmly established before he even had a choice.  During high school his family owned a fifty-acre mountain top farm in the Appalachians of West Virginia, where he raised chickens, sheep, cattle and horses.  Graduating from high school a year early he attended West Virginia University for his undergraduate degree and the University of Georgia for his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine.

With his DVM in hand and a love of the outdoors, Dr Thompson made a beeline for Oregon, because of its second to none geography.  He’s called Oregon his home since 1986.   In 1988, Dr Thompson started Aloha Animal Medical Center, where he has practiced small animal medicine and surgery.

Coming from a teaching background (both parents were public school teachers) Dr. Thompson enjoys educating his clients on the ins and outs of what’s up with their pets.  Sometimes we wish he’d hurry up in the exam rooms, but clients seem to appreciate the time he spends with them explaining the intricacies of their pet’s maladies.

As far as hobbies they run the gamut from Kite Surfing and Skiing to playing guitar and singing in a Rock n Roll band.  Never a dull moment in his life.

As to his professional passions, they are learning new and better ways to treat the endless array of difficult problems that arise in our furry friends.  Examples include Class IV Laser therapy, Veterinary Chiropractic Medicine, ProloTherapy, and a myriad of nutritional therapies for common problems.  Dr Thompson has a special interest in dermatology and ear problems, treating dental disease and most surgical procedures.  His ultimate goal is to help your pets to have a great quality life for as long as possible.
