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.
In honor of Administrator Professional Day (April 27th), we would like to thank our Receptionist for all they do for us! Petcetera wouldn’t be the same without all your hard work and dedication!

Petcetera got the chance to provide information at a local career fair!
Petcetera Animal Hospital Veterinary Technician, Lindsey N. and Clinic Mascot, Kujo enjoyed spending the morning of Feb. 17th at Community High School talking about Veterinary Technology at the Career Expo and Job Fair. Lindsey gained her degree from NDSU in Fargo and Kujo is a Bichon/ Poodle mix owned by Dr. Hagen, the clinic owner. They got to share the thrills and skills of veterinary medicine to multiple high school students from Grand Forks and surrounding areas. Everyone loved Kujo and he received lots of love from the eager students ready to learn about becoming a Vet Technician and the different career paths available to them. Lindsey displayed a variety of objects that Vet Techs come across in practice; including bladder stones, tapeworms, and even x-rays. This was Lindsey’s second year at the Expo. She loves opening new horizons for the next generation of Technicians. She loves the joy students experience when learning that this exciting career path is attainable for them. Lindsey and Kujo both want to thank the Grand Forks School District for letting them be a part of this amazing event and look forward to being a part of it again next year.
