About CVC


CVC - Crossroads Veterinary Clinic

Compassionate & Affordable Care tailored to your family's needs


CVC is built on a compassionate, family-centered approach to veterinary medicine. We believe that our pets hold our families together, and that they deserve the best clinical care possible. We are honored to be a part of the great veterinary community of the Golden Crescent.


In 2009 CVC was founded on a mission to constantly pursue excellence in patient care, and to provide the best client education experience, all at an affordable price! Since our opening day we have based everything we do on the same principles.


All our team members share a love for animals and an understanding that your pet has a unique set of needs. At CVC, your family can rest assured that we will work with you to build the right treatment plan for you and your pet.

We have recently become a hybrid practice! Crossroads Veterinary Clinic is now partnered with Nexus Veterinary Specialists. We are both operating together in the same building to synergize our team, resources, and shared expertise in order to offer the highest possible standards of care for our patients. We are thrilled to join Nexus in their mission to bring Specialized Care to the Golden Crescent region. We believe this partnership will help us continue our mission of offering the best clinical care possible.


We use state-of-the-art in-house diagnostics & medical techniques to provide affordable, comprehensive medical and surgical care for your pet.


Dr. Mark Besancon, DVM




As a veterinarian & entrepreneur, Dr. Mark’s mission in life is to innovate, create, and educate. As a Texas native, Dr. Mark grew up in a family of animal lovers, and knew early on that he wanted to work with animals. He began his college career studying bioengineering at Texas A&M – Kingsville with an interest in orthotics & implant design, and later switched to veterinary medicine. Dr. Mark received his DVM in 2005 at Texas A&M and returned to Beeville to practice at a mixed animal hospital. He married Victoria native, Magen Kasper, shortly after graduating from veterinary school and they moved to Victoria in 2007 & joined a local small animal practice.


In 2009, Mark cofounded Crossroads Veterinary Clinic with Dr. Sam Williams to offer both small and large animal services to the Golden Crescent area. Today, Dr. Mark is the sole owner of Crossroads Veterinary Clinic, and continues to provide quality small animal services to the local and surrounding areas. Dr. Mark loves being a vet because he loves helping helpless animals and the satisfaction of keeping a pet alive and healthy for their owners.


Dr. Mark has a passion for innovation & design. Through his company, Besancon Innovations, he created and developed the MB Spinal Brace, a device designed & patented to aid in the medical treatment of back injuries in dogs, and the Leash EZ-Universal Leash Holder, which serves as a leash holding device for dogs. Dr. Mark continues to market and sell products, ideas, and procedures to improve all aspects of animal and human life.


Dr. Mark is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), Texas Veterinary Medical Association (TVMA), and is the secretary for the local Golden Crescent Veterinary Medical Association (GCVMA).


Dr. Mark and Magen have made Victoria their home along with their sons Kyler and Logan and three schnauzers Zoey, Copi and Jake. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, innovating new ideas, welding and construction projects.
