Ellis Farstvedt DVM, MS, Boarded Surgeon

Dr. Ellis and his wife Dr. Holland are the current owners of Beartooth Animal Hospital. Dr. Ellis is an Oregon State University graduate (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine ‘01); a Colorado State University graduate (Masters in Clinical Sciences ’05); and Boarded by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (’06). Dr. Beug and Dr. Ellis first met in Bozeman at Copper Spring Ranch. At the time Dr. Ellis was helping build the veterinary surgical, reproduction and sports medicine center at that ranch. Business and life moved forward in a manner that allowed Dr. Ellis to move to Red Lodge and facilitate the growth of equine surgical options offered in Red Lodge. 12 years after meeting Dr. Beug, Dr. Ellis was offered a chance to start Beartooth Animal Hospital at the original site of Dr Beug’s veterinary practice. We have taken on the challenge and will succeed in carrying on the legacy of Dr. Beug and all of his contributions to this community.

Dr. Ellis and his wife also own and operate Performance Equine Specialists. They started this practice in 2008 as a seasonal equine sports medicine service for the winter migration of equine athletes to Arizona. This practice has become an integral part of the veterinary services in Arizona for seasonal visitors and specializes in lameness diagnostics, treatments, farrier consultations and surgical solutions..

Dr Ellis enjoys serving in the 4th Degree Order of the Knights of Columbus, being a parent volunteer with BSA Scouting, and guiding hunters in the fall.
