Dr. Ben Cox performed life-saving stomach surgery on a dairy cow on March 20, 2014 after the cow's stomach had flipped (a condition known as left displaced abomasum or LDA).  Don't worry, even though the cow is awake, she can't feel a thing!

Surgical Suite

A gunshot to the rear leg left this young dog with a shattered femur and facing possible amputation or worse, euthanasia.  The doctors at Crossroads Animal Clinic were able to save this dog's leg and repair the fracture.  Now this dog has long future ahead of her with no loss of function to her previously damaged leg!
