Dr. Rita Gritzmacher is a native of Lockport, New York and relocated to Raleigh and joined the Quail Corners Animal Hospital in 2018, as an ER Veterinarian. She is a graduate of Iowa State University and a member of the AVMA and decided to become a veterinarian at four years old, because she loved dogs so much.
Dr. Gritzmacher's passion, enthusiasm, and why she comes to work each day is because she wants to be able to provide quality veterinary medicine and give families back a healthy pet. One of the most memorable cases she saw was performing a foreign body surgery on a dog that had ingested two pounds of chicken wing bones. It was a happy ending for all!
Dr. Gritzmacher lives in Raleigh with her husband, four children, and a yellow lab named Toby, who all keep her busy during non-working hours.
