After a career, working for others, Dr. Pamela Gerds dreamed of a pet hospital which "Practiced Pet Medicine Right," offering state-of-the-art veterinary pet health care and where clients were treated with honor, integrity and kindness.
Her vision became Advanced Care Pet Hospital, devoted to practicing advanced veterinary medicine, where pets find health care comparable to their human companions.
Pamela, a lifelong Minnesotan, received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from the University of Minnesota and she's practiced small animal veterinary medicine ever since.
Dr. Gerds career began in Fergus Falls, MN. She was regularly on-call, frequently responding to emergencies day and night. She went on to manage a multi-doctor practice in Plymouth, MN.
A career long member of both the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the Minnesota Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA), Dr. Gerds regularly attends national conferences to bring new technologies into her practice. In 2016 she attended NAVC in San Diego, the AVMA 2014 Denver convention and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) 2013 convention in Phoenix.
Dr. Pamela Gerds' husband Tom staffed the front desk for 7 years. Recently he launched Yupik Studios a marketing and web design firm to help other small business owners achieve a comparable level of success achieved by Advanced Care Pet Hospital.
