I’m interested in finding out more about veterinary medicine. Do you accept volunteers?

We consider volunteers on an individual basis. They must be at least 18 years of age, be positive, upbeat, and willing to learn, as the learning curve for emergency veterinary medicine is much steeper than volunteering at a general practice.

 

Do you treat exotic pets—guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, birds, reptiles, amphibians, etc.?

Some of our doctors are well trained and skilled in handling and treating exotic pets. Give us a call to tell us the problem your pet is experiencing and we’ll let you know if it is something the doctor can see right away.

 

I live out of your area and need some advice about my pet. Can you help me?

It is very difficult to assess the condition of an animal without actually seeing the patient. Animals instinctively hide how they are feeling and the best thing to do when you’re concerned about your pet is to have them evaluated by a trained, skilled professional such as the doctors we have at Crossroads Animal Emergency.

Do you do non-emergency medical exams?

We provide the utmost in emergency care, and do not provide routine wellness/annual exams. However, if your pet is experiencing any symptoms whatsoever, you should bring them in to be examined by our doctor.
