NEWS and EVENTS
We’re excited to announce we’ve consolidated our name to CARE Veterinary Center, effective January 1, 2014. Since we opened, many have referred to us as CARE instead of Crossroads Animal Referral and Emergency. We love our nickname and have decided to embrace it, especially since it represents the compassionate, loving CARE we strive to provide to each and every patient who comes through our doors. We have re-imagined our logo to combine our new name and well-known paw prints, but the fun doesn’t end there. Come back soon to see our new website launching in just a few months! In the meantime, follow us on Facebook for patient stories and photos, helpful pet tips and much more.
The Animal Survivor video series honors amazing animal survivors who beat the odds because of advances in veterinary internal medicine. With the help of their owners, a general practitioner, and an ACVIM Board-certified Veterinary Specialist, these animals overcame life-threatening illnesses to lead a healthy life once again. Each animal has a unique story of survival made possible by specialty veterinary internal medicine. The Animal Survivor program is an initiative of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM), whose mission it is to enhance animal and human health by advancing veterinary internal medicine through training, education, and discovery, and the ACVIM Foundation.
