About Us

Why Mountain Valley Veterinary

We are a predominately mobile veterinary service. We work diligently with you to understand your operation and see where we may be able to assist. We are goal oriented and strive to be part of the team that takes your operation to the next level.

Just like every operation should, we have established short, medium, and long term goals. We review, assess progress, and continue to add to our goal list as time progresses. Establishing goals for your operation, or any business, serves as the framework to direct future decision making as issues arise. If you do not already have an established set of goals, we would love to help you establish those. If you do already have your goals established and written down, we are here to help you reach them!

We are dedicated to remaining a leader in veterinary health. This means that we must stay up to date on the latest information and science available to our industry. As we continue to learn, we strive to bring that information to our clients. Whether through one-on-one discussions, group meetings, our monthly newsletters, or a variety of different outlets, we will always keep the latest information and services easily accessible to our clients.
Service to your operation is our top priority. To us, that means that we provide the necessary value added services that you demand, along with the emergency services when needed. Whether a scheduled services, or a midnight, calving season emergency, we are here for you every step of the way.

If you would like to meet Dr. Bennett, please give him a call. He would love to visit and get you know you as well!


Kate Bennett, DVM

Dr. Kate Bennett joined the Mountain Valley team in 2021 when she and Dr. Ben Bennett got married.  She was born and raised on a cattle ranch in Wilsall, MT.  She completed her undergraduate studies at Montana State University (GO BOBCATS!!) where she studied animal science.  Following her undergraduate career, Kate was part of the first class thru the 1+3 cooperative between Montana State University and Washington State University: College of Veterinary Medicine, where she graduated with her veterinary degree in 2018.

After graduation, Kate began her career as an associate veterinarian in Riverton, WY.  While there, she was part of an amazing team of veterinarians, technicians, and assistants at a truly mixed animal practice. As a result of being in the middle of Wyoming and a distance from referral centers, it was common for the team to manage many in-depth cases that otherwise would be referred to specialists, while still providing routine and emergency care 24/7.

As a veterinarian, Kate enjoys the variety that both large and small animal practice offers her.  On the large animal side, she treasures many aspects that take her back to the roots of growing up on the ranch with cattle and horses.  Regarding equine, theriogenology (reproduction), individual animal care, and dental work are a few of her primary interests. She is excited to add mare reproductive and breeding services to those services already offered to Mountain Valley’s patients.  With cattle, she enjoys all aspects of working with ranchers and their operations to make them more efficient and profitable.  Immunology and vaccine program development are two areas she strives to remain current on and bring the latest information to her clients to make them most successful.
