Partnership Resources, Inc is a local, non-profit organization that provides opportunities for adults with disabilities to gain respect and have a valued role in the community. Pet Crossing’s clients and employees have had the pleasure of interacting with our PRI team over the past 15 years. (You probably recognize the familiar faces of Anne, Jeff, John and Joe [retired in January 2017], whenever you visit us!) Our hospital could not run properly without this invaluable team!
On Wednesday, January 10, 2018 our PRI crew presented Dr. Kate Knutson and Dr. Steve Barghusen with a plaque to commemorate 15 years of partnership between Pet Crossing Animal Hospital & Dental Clinic and our PRI team.

Pet Crossing was featured in a FOX9.com article on July 7th about our role as a safe haven for pets of domestic abuse survivors!
For nearly 20 years, Pet Crossing Animal Hospital of Bloomington has partnered with a Twin Cities women’s shelter, providing a safe haven for pets of domestic abuse survivors. According to Dr. Kate Knutson, they agree to care for the pets until the owner is back on their feet.
“It takes one huge emotional thing off their plate so they can work on getting themselves back together,” says Knutson.
Pet Crossing is now the proud owner of a Xoran VetCAT CT high-tech medical imaging scanner! This non-invasive advanced scanner allows us to produce 3D x-ray images of your pet’s anatomy right in our own hospital for faster diagnosis and treatment.
You can view a video from Xoran Technologies of the VetCAT CT scanner in action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWa_wClgrVo&feature=youtu.be
This is very exciting news, especially as there is only one other veterinary practice that has this advanced CT scanner available for their clients. We’re so excited to be able to provide gold standard, advanced diagnostics to our patients!

Pet Crossing is a Cat Friendly Practice. We follow the standards set by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. “The AAFP is dedicated to advancing the field of feline medicine and surgery by setting the standards of feline care through the publication of practice guidelines, position statements, and by providing continuing education.” “In the United States, there are millions more owned cats than owned dogs, yet cats visit veterinarians less frequently than dogs. Contributing to the decrease in cat visits is the stress associated with getting the cat to the veterinary practice and owners who are unaware of the need for wellness and preventive care. The Cat Friendly Practice program provides a solution to this trend.”
