Jim and Gail met in 1971 as pre-veterinary students at Mississippi State University. They were married in 1973. After completing their pre-vet studies they entered Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine together in 1974. Upon graduation in 1978 they returned to Mississippi and established Crossgates Veterinary Clinic. The practice has seen many changes over the past 36 years. Initially, the Anderson's had a general practice with patient species ranging from dogs, cats, goats, pigs, horses, and cattle. As time has gone by and the location of the practice has changed from rural to urban they are now exclusively a small animal practice.
The Anderson's have strived to provide high quality diagnostics with specialized equipment and a state of the art in-house laboratory. It is the goal of Crossgates Veterinary Clinic to provide the very best in client and patient care. Their staff are trained to provide excellent patient services.
Each year the doctors and staff attend continuing education classes to increase their knowledge and to learn new information about diseases and the most up to date therapy for their veterinary patients.
