At Crossroads Veterinary Clinic your pet’s health is our number one concern. You can help us keep your animals in top physical condition.

Here are a few tips to help you care for your pet.

  • Whether your new pet is a puppy or kitten or a mature animal, bring him in for a thorough checkup.
  • Schedule an annual checkup for your pet.
  • Ask us about recommended vaccinations for your pet and keep them up to date.
  • Treat for parasites like fleas and worms. We supply a variety of parasite prevention products to keep your pets pest free.
  • A look in the ears
  • Feed your pet good quality food formulated to meet his nutritional needs (don’t expect your dog to thrive on cat food!).
  • Don’t overfeed! Overweight pets have more health problems than lean ones.
  • Give your pet plenty of exercise.
  • Provide a clean place for your pet to sleep. Outside pets need shelter from rain and extreme temperatures.
  • Clean litter boxes daily.
  • Trim your dog’s toenails regularly.
  • Keep pets clean with regular bathing and brushing.
  • Keep their teeth clean – use toothpaste made for pets. Schedule tooth cleaning with us if plaque starts to build up.
  • Spay or neuter your pet to avoid unpleasant habits (like spraying in cats) and to prevent injury from fighting or wandering.
