Petcetera Animal Clinic Mission Statement:
We at Petcetera strive to work with our pet owners to achieve a healthy, rewarding life for our patients. Qualified compassionate care will be demonstrated throughout the pet’s life. We aim to treat your pet as we would treat our own animals and to establish a lifelong doctor-patient relationship. We always emphasize preventative medicine to be proactive with your pet’s health.
By using updated technology, we educate our clients on the newest treatments, procedures, and products. We encourage questions and will invariably take as much time as necessary until our clients feel informed about possible ailments, available diagnostics, and recommended treatment plans.
In order to complete our mission, we believe strong relationships with our patients, clients, and referral veterinarians are essential. Our ultimate goal is to give our owners and their pets a long happy life together.
Petcetera is very excited to announce that we have hired a new doctor. Dr. Girodat has shadowed and worked at Petcetera throughout her college years and has now joined us as our newest veterinarian. We are very happy and proud to have her as a part of the Petcetera family!
Dr. Ashley Girodat is a Grand Forks native who knew she wanted to be a veterinarian for as long as she can remember. As a child she always gravitated to animals. She was often seen placing bandages of Kleenex and tape on her stuffed animals to “fix” them. She graduated from Red River High School and later received her Bachelors of Science degree in Biology from the University of North Dakota in 2012. She then went on to Oregon State University, where she received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree in 2016.
Dr. Girodat shadowed and later worked at Petcetera Animal Clinic throughout her college years. She is excited to be back but now as a Veterinarian.
She lives in Grand Forks with her fiancé, Bobby, their two cats “Lucky” and “Oreo” and their chocolate Labrador Retriever “Rylee”.
