Tampa Veterinary Clinic Launches Redesigned Website

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2011) - Cross Creek Animal Medical Centre announced the launch of the practice's redesigned website, The website was redesigned to better educate pet owners about services available at the veterinary hospital. The practice offers pet wellness care, dental care, and boarding. The practice also offers holistic care, including pet acupuncture. The redesigned website also features a 'Veterinary Topics' pet wellness library that pet owners can use as an educational resource to learn more about at-home wellness care. The veterinary hospital serves the Tampa, New Tampa, Wesley Chapel, and the Zephyrhills communities. The veterinarian treats dogs and cats, while also providing basic care for rabbits and birds.

Dr. Timothy Hodge, a Tampa veterinarian, announced that his practice, Cross Creek Animal Medical Centre, has launched a redesigned website. The new site design is intended to enhance communication with pet owners and expand access to veterinary health resources.

"As a veterinarian, I believe strongly that wellness care starts at home," said Dr. Hodge. "The decisions pet owners make every day -- from pet food to exercise -- impacts the overall health of their pets. The new 'Veterinary Topics' library is a wonderful addition to the website and a natural extension of my mission to educate pet owners about the basics of wellness care."

The Veterinary Topics library includes information on selecting a pet, how to introduce a pet to a new family and home, and basic training tips. There is also a video newsroom on health topics, such as the best way to brush a dog's teeth. The library includes tips for grooming, travel, seasonal care, and how to recognize signs of illness in a pet.

The redesigned website also features information on the services available at the animal hospital. These services include routine wellness care, vaccinations, spay and neuter operations, pet dental care, and pet surgery. The veterinary hospital also offers pet boarding.

Cross Creek Animal Medical Centre now provides pet holistic care as a complement or alternative to traditional veterinary care. Services include companion animal laser therapy to aid healing and acupuncture for natural pain management. More information about holistic care is available on the website.

"Many pet owners are not familiar with holistic care, or may be unsure if this care is right for their pets," said Dr. Hodge. "I encourage all pet owners to visit our website to learn more about our comprehensive treatments and how these treatments can naturally help manage pain or a chronic health condition."

Interested pet owners can also learn more about wellness and holistic care by signing up for the bi-weekly, e-newsletter. Signing up for the e-newsletter also gives individuals access to exclusive, members-only content, including Pet Wellness Program information, Pets4Kids and PetTV.
