Community Service

Our community service event for the year was cleaning the Tri-County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall. We cleaned for a few hours and thoroughly enjoyed helping out our community get ready for fair. 

Care Fund

Through the American Veterinary Medical Foundation’s Veterinary Care Charitable Fund, our hospital is able to help animals rescued from abuse and neglect and the pets of clients facing personal hardships. It will also help cover medical costs for people who can not afford them. Your donations to the AVMF on behalf of our hospital will go directly to animals in our Deer Lodge community. Click on the AVMF donate button to make your tax deductible donation.

Teach Agriculture Day

September 21st is National Teach Ag Day.  We at Clark Fork Veterinary Clinic enjoy educating on that day also! 2016 we went to the grade school to talk about different uses for animals, then did a demo on how to listen to hearts and get ready for surgery. We also went to the High School to discuss different careers in Agriculture. We wrapped the day up with a tour of the clinic for local 4-H clubs. 

Educational Talks

Dr. Nielsen, Price and Thomas have all volunteered some time over the years to talk to Seeley Swan High School and Elementary Schools, Powell County High School, OD Speer and Granville Stuart Elementary School and Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine.  Topics covered included Veterinary Medicine, owning your own business and agricultural animals.  Dr. Thomas helps out every year with WSU College of Vet Meds interactive learning week where students practice their communication skills.

4-H Night at the Clinic

We have hosted 4-H night at the clinic the past 2 years. We have educated on the importance of preventing parasites, vaccinating animals, and preventative health care. We also gave tours and explained what we do on a daily basis at the veterinary clinic.
