Arlington VeterinarianChristina Minton, DVM

Dr. Christina Minton is the owner and practicing veterinarian for Crossroads Animal Clinic. She is originally from Arlington, TX. A Cum Laude graduate of Texas A & M University, she earned her degree in Biomedical Science and was a member of the Dean's List. She was also a scholar athlete as a member of the Women's Equestrian Team. She later earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A & M College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006.

Even as a young child, all Dr. Minton has ever wanted was to be a veterinarian. "It makes me feel good when I have a really hard case that makes a full recovery. I love how happy those people are having their friend back. I like seeing them leave with their tails wagging happily."

Dr. Minton is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Texas Veterinary Medical Association and the Tarrant County Veterinary Medical Association. She has special interests in ultrasound, surgery, dentistry and internal medicine.

She shares her home with two dogs, a teacup poodle named Olive, a miniature Poodle named Arya, an Italian Greyhound named Indiana ("Indy"), a bearded dragon named Rango and a cat named Maggie Moo. She enjoys spending her time away from the clinic playing with her young child, horseback riding, reading, walking, going to movies, garden shopping with her friends and sisters as well as watching college football with her husband.

Dr. Kara Lewton is an Associate Veterinarian at Crossroads Animal Clinic. Since joining the Crossroads team in June of 2015, she's focused on administering care to animals that visit our animal hospital through preventative medicine, dentistry, surgery and diagnostic services.

"I was drawn to this clinic because of their dedication to providing the gold standard in veterinary medicine and treating their patients as though they're our own pets," Dr. Lewton explains. "I also appreciate Dr. Minton's interests in dentistry and ultrasonography, because these are areas in which I hope to refine my own skills in the years to come."
