ROBERT M. THOMPSON, JR., V.M.D. - MEDICAL DIRECTOR A native of Delaware, "Dr. Bob" was raised on a farm in Hazlettville, Delaware.  When most children were playing baseball, football or enjoying vacations, Dr. Thompson was helping his father raise beef cattle and train standardbred horses.  He attended Caesar Rodney High School in Camden, Del.  He received his B. S. degree in agriculture from the University of Delaware in 1981 and from there attended  the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 1985.  After graduation, he practiced at several small animal hospitals, but in 1988, his love for horses inspired him to accept a position at Delaware Park as assistant track veterinarian.  In 1990, Dr. Thompson left his position at Delaware Park to pursue his desire to open his own veterinary hospital. In 1991, Lums Pond Animal Hospital became a reality and has since become one of Delaware's leading, progressive, state of the art, AAHA accredited veterinary practices.   Dr. Thompson has dedicated servant leadership to Delaware Veterinary Medical Association.  He has served on numerous committees and in leadership positions including DVMA Executive Board, DVMA President Elect, President, and Past President, and currently serves as Delegate to AVMA.  In 2010, Dr. Thompson was named Veterinarian of the Year by the DVMA.  Dr. Thompson resides in Bear with his wife, Barbara, their 5 Brittanys and 2 cats.  In his spare time he enjoys gardening, fishing, harness racing, U of DE football games and spending time with family and friends.
