Description

Our Mission

Our philosophy at Crossroads is to get pets started on a wellness maintenance plan while they are young and then to screen for and prevent diseases as they age. The old cliche "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" applies just as much (if not more so) to animals! The ultimate goal is to provide you and your companion with the highest-quality of life and length of time together as possible.

Physical Exams Save Lives!  What is the value of a physical exam? Sometimes, pet owners seem to lack an understanding of what a physical exam entails and why it is necessary at least once a year.  By using our senses of touch, sight, smell and hearing, veterinarians are able to get a thorough assessment of a patient's body systems and if there are any significant abnormalities present.  Further, by asking a few simple questions, our staff is able to obtain a history of a pet's life style and any symptoms th

Pre-surgical Bloodwork  Why is pre-surgical bloodwork required for my pet to have surgery performed? Anesthesia drugs are safe and effective if used on a healthy pet with normal organ function.  The problem is that many animals can appear healthy and actually have significant organ dysfunction.  In particular, the kidneys and liver can have decreased function without obvious symptoms.  Unfortunately, these organs are the most critical in removing the anesthetic drugs from the body.  When they are not filter

Geriatric/Wellness Testing  Why is it so important that my cat or dog have yearly wellness blood testing and blood pressure checks?  After all, he seems pretty healthy to me. We are all used to our human physicians running these tests on us as a part of our yearly check-ups, especially as we age.  In animals, like people, these tests are the key to catching insidious diseases before they cause serious problems.  Insidious diseases are those that are slowly progressive and start with subtle symptoms, but can

I have always loved animals, and I first told my parents I wanted to be a veterinarian when I was eight years old. Once I got my first cat, a Cornish Rex named Corny, I realized just how important pets can be in a person's life. With the new understanding that by caring for their pets I would also be caring for people, I was sold on the profession of veterinary medicine. After graduating from Riverside High School in 2000, I attended The Ohio State University, earning my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2007. After three years as an associate veterinarian, I decided to pursue opening my own practice so I could focus on providing high-quality, personalized medicine in a compassionate and caring environment. While planning and building Crossroads Veterinary Hospital, I worked as a relief veterinarian, filling in temporarily at numerous veterinary clinics throughout northeast Ohio.

In 2004, I married my best friend and high school girlfriend, Kaari, who is also a graduate of The Ohio State University (Go Bucks!). She works as an occupational therapist for the Riverside Local Schools. We have a son, Miles, born in 2009, who is great friends with our dog Bluebell, a hound mix. (His first word was "dog". Maybe he will follow in his dad's footsteps?) We also have two cats, Isabelle and Tula, and a ball python named Anfernee (who has been living with me since the 6th grade!).

I consider it an honor and a privilege to care for and serve people and their animal companions during every stage of their time together. I get just as much satisfaction from assiting in the difficult decisions that arrise when pets become seniors, as I do with every new puppy and kitten visit. There is nothing quite like being involved in a pet's life from start to finish, and it is an extremely rewarding experience every single time. I look forward to getting to know all of you and your furry family members

I began working with animals in 1998. I spent four years as a pet trainer instructing classes for puppies, as well as basic adult and advanced obedience. I also evaluated for the AKC Canine Good Citizen Certification. At the same time I worked at a local pet store as a manager and spent time in the specialty department caring for pocket pets, reptiles and fish. In 2002 I began my career in a veterinary practice. Starting as an assistant, I have spent the last 9 � years caring for pets, learning the business, and living out my passion for animals on a daily basis. My personal mission is to educate pet owners so they can give their pets the best and longest life they can, to use my talents to help make sick pets better, and show the utmost compassion when it's time to say goodbye. I promise to treat our clients' pets just like mine at home! I have a Brussels Griffon named Wotson, an English Mastiff named Cringer, and three cats- Kookz, Jomi and Teal'c. Dr. Schroeder is an awesome veterinarian and an excellent mentor and advocate for pet welfare! I am proud to be a part of Crossroads!!!
