About Us
Dr. Ben Abbey was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado before moving to
Fort Collins to attend Colorado State University.  There he worked at a small,
family-owned dairy while earning a  Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and then
continuing on to receive his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in  2005.  Upon
graduation, he and his  wife, Kristina, moved to Gooding, Idaho, where he became a

their dream of owning a practice in Montana where they can raise their kids in a
ranching environment.

Dr. Abbey stays busy in his free time with a houseful of 4 young kids and a barnful of
horses.   He enjoys driving draft horses , a love that is shared with his oldest daughter.  
He also enjoys all of Montana's ample opportunities for hunting and fishing, and spends
as much time outdoors as possible.
