Kate Knutson DVM

Dr Knutson has earned a well-deserved reputation as a tireless advocate of dentistry and wellness for pets. As the owner of Pet Crossing since 1997, she has dedicated herself to her clients as well as to the larger community of veterinary professionals. As the American Animal Hospital Association’s (AAHA) President for the 2013-14 term, she has also served on its Board of Directors since 2007, and has been the Chair of the Pet Nutrition Alliance since 2010. For someone who never really intended on becoming a veterinarian, Kate is thrilled with her choice of profession. “I am probably one of the few people you’ll ever interview in veterinary medicine that didn’t dream of being a veterinarian from the time they were 5 years old,” she reflected, “I thought I would go into research with a PhD and maybe an MD to go along with my DVM degree. Instead, life happened as I was busy making plans.”

“I am probably one of the few people you’ll ever interview in veterinary medicine that didn’t dream of being a veterinarian from the time they were 5 years old.”Dr. Kate Knutson

Kate’s permanent detour into veterinary medicine began during her first year studying large animal medicine at the University of Minnesota, when she accidentally became an AAHA addict after joining as a student member.

“It didn’t make sense that a large animal vet-to-be who was going into research was a student AAHA member, but I was, and I’ve been one ever since,” she said. Following her graduation in 1996, Kate plunged headlong into her veterinary career by purchasing what has now become Pet Crossing Animal Hospital & Dental Clinic in Bloomington, MN. Dr Knutson’s skills and knowledge are only a part of the story. As anyone who has brought their pet to the clinic knows, you can expect a warm welcome and a large dose of Kate’s wonderful and caring personality along with her expert diagnosis. Kate embodies all the best that Pet Crossing has become. We encourage you to give us a try. Come in and see for yourself how unique and special Pet Crossing is!

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Prophet, Pet Crossing’s long time greeter, passed away on February 29th after a long struggle with kidney disease. He was one of the sweetest, most handsome cats to ever grace our hospital, and he will be sorely missed by the entire Pet Crossing family. We know that he is up there licking everyone’s bowls clean and enjoying plenty of chin scratches. Thank you to all of our clients who loved him as much as we did.


Cat Friendly PracticePet Crossing is a Cat Friendly Practice. We follow the standards set by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. “The AAFP is dedicated to advancing the field of feline medicine and surgery by setting the standards of feline care through the publication of practice guidelines, position statements, and by providing continuing education.” “In the United States, there are millions more owned cats than owned dogs, yet cats visit veterinarians less frequently than dogs. Contributing to the decrease in cat visits is the stress associated with getting the cat to the veterinary practice and owners who are unaware of the need for wellness and preventive care. The Cat Friendly Practice program provides a solution to this trend.”

“I have been taking my treasured cavapoo Millie to Pet Crossing for 4 years. I utilize Pet Crossing for boarding, dental procedures and general wellness.

“I’ve brought my kitty four-leggeds to Dr B and Dr K for 18+ years, regardless of where I was living – for 6 years it was a 40 minute trip one way. There are a lot of great vets, but I appreciate how thorough they are in every aspect of care provided.”

“For years Pet Crossing Animal Hospital has provided experienced and compassionate care for my husky Maya Rose. There is no question that the entire staff works attentively to provide the best and friendliest care for their patients. Maya Rose has had numerous procedures and underwent chemotherapy for cancer but yet she still can’t get out of the car fast enough when we pull up to see everyone. Providing high quality care for my dog is very important to me. Dr. Knutson and her staff have helped us in making sure our husky has a wonderful quality of life for as long as she is around! I greatly appreciate the entire staff who I trust completely and couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.”
