Employment & Volunteering

Pet Crossing Animal Hospital & Dental Clinic was established in 1997 by Dr. Kate Knutson and Dr. Steve Barghusen. Their vision was to establish a facility where clients and their four-legged family members could receive quality care in a friendly environment. They wanted to have their patients actually enjoy coming to see the doctor! That’s why every patient gets lots of treats, pets, hugs and kisses!

We are a full service, AAHA accredited facility.

If you are looking for a rewarding position as a DVM, Certified Veterinary Technician, Veterinary Assistant or Client Services Representative, and you LOVE animals, please send us a letter of introduction along with your resume, in pdf or Word format, to info@petcrossing.com, or fax to (952) 884-7564.
