When your pet is just not right
You’re worried. Your pet just doesn’t seem like himself today. What should you do? Call us. Our caring staff will help you decide if your pet’s symptoms warrant a visit with one of our doctors. Many times, sooner is better than later where early intervention can lead to a faster recovery.
One of the easiest ways to insure a long, healthy life for your pet is through regular wellness exams. Pets age at a faster rate than people and their health can change more rapidly too. At Crossroads Veterinary Hospital, we recommend regular visits and appropriate screenings for every stage of your dog or cat’s life. These exams can help us detect signs of disease and provide treatment before your pet’s health is adversely affected.
Vaccinations provide vital protection to pets. Throughout their lives, our pets will likely be exposed to several infectious diseases that can cause severe illness or even death. By providing our pets with the protection vaccinations provide, we can greatly extend their life.

Pet Teeth Cleaning Under Anesthesia – Pros and Cons
Like most of us, our pets are not exactly thrilled about a dental either. First, it is very uncomfortable; second, they don’t know that it’s for their own good. Without anesthesia, it is thus virtually impossible to clean dogs’ and cats’ teeth. At least not as thoroughly as necessary.
Saying goodbye to your pet can be extremely difficult. The process can be emotionally and mentally draining. We don’t want you to be alone at the end stages of a pets’ life, and we promise to do everything we can to make it easier on you and your pet. Most of all, we promise to treat each case with compassionate and understanding care.
Crossroads Veterinary Hospital is dedicated to providing the Diamond Springs, CA community with the highest level of service. That’s why we offer a fully stocked pharmacy to meet all your pets’ needs.
Puppy & Kitten Plans
The first few months of life are crucial to starting your pet on the journey to a long, healthy life.
Your puppy and kitten’s first exam should occur shortly after birth.
Senior Pet Care
Just like us, our pet’s health care needs change as they age. But, because our pets age faster than we do, their senior years can creep up faster than we realize. Our pets are considered senior around age seven. As they age, they become susceptible to chronic conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, and hyperthyroidism. The right diet, health and weight are essential to your senior pet’s health and we’re here to help you make the best choices.
We offer nutritional counseling for pet owners of Diamond Springs, CA and surrounding communities. If you have any questions about your pet’s’ diet or would like more information about your pet’s’’ nutritional needs, please contact us today. We can set up a nutrition plan for your pet.
