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.
