General Veterinary Services at Our Waco Clinic

Our veterinary clinic in Waco can help pets stay healthy throughout all phases of their lives, from puppies and kittens to senior animals. Some of our most popular services include:

  • Preventative, Diagnostic, and Medical Care: We offer comprehensive preventative wellness care for pets. Our diagnostic techniques can detect many problems in their early stages. We also provide microchipping, parasite prevention, nutritional services, and standard medical treatment.
  • Ultrasound: This diagnostic tool is painless and provides an internal picture of your pet's body. Available by appointment.
  • Vaccinations: Regular vaccinations are critical for keeping your pet safe against infectious diseases. Our veterinarian can administer shots to safeguard your furry animal from rabies, distemper, and many other dangers. We also provide periodic booster shots to keep that protection strong.
  • Dental Care: We can administer regular dental checkups to look for and, if necessary, treat issues such as tooth damage or infections. Professional cleanings can help protect your companion animal against periodontal disease.
  • Spay and Neuter Surgery: These procedures can prevent unwanted pregnancies while also reducing your pet's risks for reproductive diseases.
  • Cold Laser Therapy: This painless form of care uses laser light to stimulate tissue healing, relieve pain, and reduce inflammation.
  • General Surgery and Hospitalization: We can provide advanced surgical techniques and hospitalization services for pets in need.

    Maya R.

    Excellent staff to customer ratio and highly skilled. (Unlike many others in Waco where it seems like you're in a long line at Wal-Mart customer service). The main Doc is intuitive and was able to know one of our dog's was more emotional and sensitive than the others. How did she know that? 😇 All around expert care of our 3 furry family members! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    We almost lost our youngest fur baby, but thanks to Dr. Hendricks & her dedicated staff, they jumped right in to find the problem which turns out to be a rare disease & stabilized her. They kept us updated & always well informed. Thank you Dr. Hendricks & all the staff at Crossroads Animal Clinic for your care & immediate attention to our precious family member.
