Anna P. Davies, DVM, MS, Diplomate ACVIM (Internal Medicine)

Anna P. Davies

When I was seven years old I decided I wanted to be a veterinarian. I had accompanied my neighbor to her veterinarian with her sick German Shepherd, Pal, who I really liked. I was so taken by the veterinarian and the way he treated Pal, I knew this was the life for me. More than 50 years later, I am still very glad I followed through with that decision.

I have always enjoyed working with animal and their people. I am a problem solver and I love that job. Helping an owner keep their pet healthy or get their pet back to health is very rewarding to me. I enjoy education and the constant need to keep current. This has challenged me to go beyond attaining my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree (DVM) and get a Master’s degree in veterinary Clinical pathology and to become Board certified as a Small Animal Veterinary Internist in 1985. My veterinary colleagues still refer to me as the “CE Junky” because I love to attend continuing education seminars.

Twenty-six years ago I started Crossroads Animal Hospital, LTD in Burnsville, MN. Owning your own small business certainly provides plenty of opportunity for problem solving. It has been challenging and rewarding. Overall, I have been privileged to work with longtime, dedicated support staff and outstanding and talented veterinarians. The icing on the cake has been the loyal clients and their special pets that have let me into their lives as their veterinarian.

I am very proud of Crossroads Animal Hospital, LTD and look forward to many more years as a practicing veterinarian.

I have always considered myself to be a lucky person. I was lucky enough to know early on what I wanted to be “when I grew up”, and even more fortunate in that what I wanted to be was a veterinarian!

I’ve lived in Minnesota for many years now, but I was originally an east coast transplant to the Midwest. I grew up in Maryland, but came west to the University of Illinois where I completed my undergraduate and professional degrees. I moved to Minnesota in 1984, a decision I’ve never regretted (even if I do complain a lot in January!). I worked at a variety of clinics for several years, primarily as a relief veterinarian, before finding a home at Crossroads Animal Hospital, LTD in 1989.

I have two children in their twenties (“transitional adults”, as I call them). My daughter is in graduate school at St. Mary’s in Minneapolis, and my son is a senior at MSU, Mankato. Although I’m something of an empty-nester these days, my 4 cats (Danny, Scully, Gracie and Mojo) and my Henry, make for plenty of company!

I joined Crossroads Animal Hospital, LTD in 1991 and I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else. I work with a great group of people — they all love what they do and want to provide the best care for our patients and their families. I’m fortunate to know so many families and their pets!

My undergraduate degree is from Carleton College in Northfield, MN. I obtained my degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Minnesota and then completed an internship at the University of MN, an intensive year of training in both medicine and surgery.

Outside of work (when not attending my son’s soccer matches) I enjoy gardening, reading and running. My husband and I like to run the 10 mile and half-marathon races organized around town. With our daughter in college, we share our home with our teenage son, as well as Wally, our Newfoundland, and 3 cats — Toby, Lucy and naughty Lily (despite my husband’s allergy to cats!)

“I highly recommend Crossroads Animal Hospital. We were so glad we chose this group when we rescued our dog. She was emaciated and sick from being on the road for a couple of months and Crossroads worked very closely with us to help bring her back to health. The vets and staff are very attentive and their love and caring for animals shows. Our primary vet is Julie Michels, she is knowledgeable, concerned, respectful (of both our dog and us) and communicates very well. We have seen other vets in the group as well and have found the same attitudes. If you are looking for a doctor for any of your pets, this is an excellent choice. ”— Carrie H.

All in all, an excellent place to take your pet. ”— Bob and Julia C.

“I have been bringing my dogs to Crossroads Animal Hospital for over 16 years. The care from all of the staff there has been exemplary. They have all gone above and beyond on more than one occasion. From a volunteer to stay a little after hours because I couldn’t get there before closing time, to the doctors who diagnosed a difficult problem of a very sick dog who was just 6 years old at the time. That dog is now almost 18 now and is doing great! I will be using Crossroads for all of my future veterinary needs and will highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for excellent care for their animals. ”— Nadine O.
