Our Veterinarians

Dr. Katie Dudley

Dr Katie Dudley is a 2003 graduate of the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. She worked at East Valley Animal Clinic from 2003 until July of 2007 when she moved to Baltimore, MD. Missing Minnesota, Dr. Dudley moved back “home” in December 2008 and was very excited to be able to return to EVAC in January 2009. She enjoys dermatology, feline medicine, and getting to witness the bond between clients and their pets.

Currently, Dr Dudley lives in Minneapolis with her partner, Jeff, and 2 cats, Harry and Sally. In her free time she enjoys reading, yoga, and attempting to knit and crochet.

Dr. Pam Takeuchi

Dr. Pam Takeuchi joined the staff in June 2005 after moving to the area from Plymouth, Minnesota. Dr. Pam is a 1999 graduate of the Ohio State University Veterinary School. Originally from southern California, living in Minnesota has been a change. Winter mountain biking and cross country skiing have ensured that the winter months go by a little quicker. During the summer months, she is busy mountain biking around MN.

Her husband Ken, and their 2 sons, Kyle and Owen, and their dogs, Yuki and Eddie, also ensure that Dr. Pam never sits around for too long.

Dr. Mary Jo Wagner

Mary Jo Wagner was a certified veterinary technician for over 20 years before she returned to school to earn her degree as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Minnesota School of Veterinary Medicine in May 2005. During her years as a veterinary technician, she worked in several different small animal practices, including the Animal Emergency Clinic in St. Paul, MN where she gained skills in emergency medicine. Dr. Wagner was also a faculty member at Argosy University where she trained vet. tech students.

Dr. Mary Jo Wagner and her husband have 2 adult children. They also share their home with their two dogs Walter and Alice, and their 4 cats Lucy, Petey, Pickles and Barney. In her spare time, she keeps busy with home improvement projects and gardening.

Dr. Addy Mueller Dodendorf

Dr. Addy Mueller is a 2020 graduate of Iowa State University. She is excited to help all the people and animals at East Valley Animal Clinic.

Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Dr. Mueller is enjoying all the things the Twin Cities has to offer. In her free time, Dr. Mueller enjoys rock climbing, reading a good book, and a variety of sports, including soccer and football (Go Big Red!).

Currently, Dr. Mueller and her husband, Joe, live in Hopkins with their two very loveable beagles, Luna and Comet.

Dr. Kathy Ranzinger

Dr. Kathy Ranzinger purchased East Valley Animal Clinic in 1995 when it was located within the East Valley Plaza strip mall. In 2001 a new building was erected at our current location. It has grown from a 1 Doctor, 1 technician and 1 receptionist practice to a 6 Doctor practice.

Dr. Ranzinger is very proud of East Valley Animal Clinic, especially the staff. “It is very rewarding to provide a respectful, pleasant work environment where we can all grow together as a team.”

Dr. Ranzinger lives with her husband Dave on a small hobby farm in New Prague. They are raising Angora goats for their mohair and chickens for their eggs. They also have 2 dachshunds, 2 great Pyrenees guardian dogs, 1 border collie, 2 parrots, 1 parakeet, and a growing number of cats!

Dr Ranzinger retired in September 2023. We are sad to see her go and we continue to practice the high quality and compassionate medicine with which she founded this clinic.
