Our Doctors

Dr. Ashley Isbell Goforth

My dream of becoming a veterinarian began at a very young age when a fellow student’s dad came to career day to discuss his life as a veterinarian. Ever since that day, my life revolved around completing everything needed to get into the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine and becoming a successful veterinarian. Because of how the one veterinarian influenced my life, I pay it forward by inspiring elementary school children to enter into the veterinary profession.

I’m a good ole Clover girl, graduating from Clover High School almost 20 years ago. I then majored in Animal Science/Pre-Vet at Clemson University (Go Tigers!) graduating in Dec 2006. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a DVM in 2011 (Go Dawgs!). My husband is a Georgia fan, so when Clemson plays Georgia, it is a house divided!

My husband and I have 4 dogs (a Havanese, a Great Dane/Mastiff, a Labrador, and a Border Collie mix), 1 cat, and 3 horses, not to mention the 3 cats and bearded dragon at the office. Our small dog, Spud, can be seen here frequently! We have an adorable 5-year-old daughter, happy 3-year-old son, and infant son!

Personally, I am a HUGE college football fan! I love going on long trail rides, camping, kayaking, four-wheeling, boat riding, the beach, and generally just being outside. I also love seeing clients’ exotic pets and wildlife. My favorite patients are raccoons and bobcats! I can treat just about anything. My mission is to provide the community with friendly affordable services, quality individualized lifelong care for all pets, and understandable education on care, prevention, and treatment options.

 

Dr. Ashley Bowser

Even as a little kid I loved all kinds of animals. Over time it became clear to me that I needed to pursue a profession in veterinary medicine. I earned an Equine Science degree from Auburn University and rode on the AU Equestrian Club Team. From there, I went on to Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, completing my clinical year at Colorado State University. I have a special interest in equine and livestock medicine, ophthalmology, and reproduction. In my free time, I love to work out, hike, and snuggle with my island kitty, Izzy, and boxer mix, Nelly.

Dr. Amanda MacDonald, DVM

I am originally from Boston, Massachusetts. In my studies to become a vet, I attended the University of New England in Maine to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Behavior. I, then, attended St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine in Grenada, West Indies. Living in the Caribbean made me realize my love of traveling. This influenced my decision to attend The Royal Veterinary College in London, England, for my clinical year, as well as an externship in conservation/wildlife medicine in South Africa.

My special interests in veterinary medicine include: large animal surgery and medicine, ultrasonography, radiology, small animal surgery, and infectious diseases. My hobbies include hiking, running, and cheering on the Boston Bruins! I am excited to begin working at York Vet and have moved to South Carolina with my island cat, Furiosa, whom I adopted from my Caribbean vet school.
