Emily Wipf, DVM
Dr. Emily Wipf was born and raised near Belgrade, MT. Her love for animals and the veterinary field started at a young age as she tended to stuffed animal patients in her make-shift bedroom “clinic” complete with an over-sized lab coat and plastic stethoscope. This desire to help animals further developed into a love for biology and the science of medicine as she pursued her undergraduate degree at Montana State University with a major in Microbiology. Dr. Wipf then completed veterinary school at Washington State University through the WIMU program. After some time spent away from the Gallatin Valley, Dr. Wipf is excited to be back, close to family, friends, and beautiful mountains.
Dr. Wipf appreciates the variety that veterinary medicine has to offer and that there is always something new to learn. She enjoys improving and maintaining the quality of life of our canine and feline patients in addition to forming bonds with the people who love them. Her professional interests include internal medicine and preventive care.
