We are the longest continually operating veterinary hospital in Red Lodge.
Mid 1960’s until 1974: Dr. Andy Elting started this veterinary facility after being an instructor at Colorado State University. Dr. Elting also was an English teacher in Red Lodge during the time he operated this clinic.
1974 until 2019: Dr. John Beug and his wife Sue Beug named the practice Red Lodge Veterinary Clinic. They really built the legacy that we are continuing today. Their commitment to the community and its animals is what forms the backbone of the current operations.
2020 – Present: Dr. Ellis Farstvedt and his wife Dr. Mandi Holland named the practice Beartooth Animal Hospital. We have continued the family effort with Dr. Beug and Sue being actively involved in our practice as they wish to be. We invited Heather Graber to continue with us as part of our team through the business transition in which she continues to manage the day to activities of our hospital. Dr. Tari Isham joined the practice in the fall of 2020.
