We are an established two-doctor, small animal AAHA accredited practice located at the base of the mountains in beautiful Bozeman, Montana.
“Bozeman is called ‘the most livable place’ for good reason. Enjoy world-renowned fly fishing, dramatic mountains for hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, hunting, and backcountry exploring, Yellowstone National Park, and impressive wildlife. When you are ready for a more city experience, dive into Bozeman’s thriving arts and culture communities, ranging from main street festivals, farmers markets, cultural centers and museums to symphonies, theaters, and art galleries.” (courtesy of https://www.visitmt.com/places-to-go/cities-and-towns/bozeman.html).
