Dr. Brett Bingham

Dr. Bingham joined Intermountain Pet Hospital's veterinary team in 2001. He became part-owner in 2008 and then became sole owner in June 2017. His path to Intermountain began on his father's dairy farm in Gooding, ID, where he developed a love of working with animals. He wrestled in college (Ricks College and Boise State University) and received All-American Honors. He then received his Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University in 2000. His areas of interest include diagnostic endoscopy, laparoscopy, ultrasound, dentistry, and reproduction.

Dr. Bingham firmly believes that the bond between pets and people fosters healthy and happy living for both parties. He finds great satisfaction in enriching the lives of pets and pet owners by providing exceptional medical and surgical services to all his patients. His home life includes his wonderful family--his wife, his five children, his dog Keena and two cats named Bitty and Midnight. Whether he's at home or work, he stays busy: His favorite hobbies are cruising around on his motorcycle with his five brothers, running and playing on his mini-farm with his pigs, sheep, goats, calves, and chickens.

He is thrilled to be back in Idaho and to have landed at Intermountain Pet Hospital where his enthusiasm for offering top quality medicine and service and his desire for constant learning and improvement is shared by all of his colleagues.

Dr. Davis loves the wide variety of creatures he can see on a given day and cherishes the opportunity to attend all of their needs-- from medical to surgical, to behavioral. He is excited to see any of the furry, feathered, slimy, or scaly members or your family. With so many interesting patients it’s hard to pick a favorite, but if pressed, he’d have to admit he has a particularly soft spot for old kitties.

He is blessed to share his life with his beautiful wife Fabienne, sons Odin, Marcel and Sampson, and two mischievous cats, Captain Haddock and Miloue. When not at work he spends his time enjoying the company of friends and family while playing in the great outdoors of the Gem State.

Dr. Kelley Miller was raised in Homer, Alaska where her grandparents owned a seafood cannery. She achieved her BS at The University of Florida in 1991 and completed a DVM degree at Purdue University in 1995.

She tremendously enjoys traveling and has practiced in Indiana, Oregon, Alaska, and just recently near Houston. While in Houston, she worked extensively with the local shelter and rescue groups, donating her time and efforts towards tackling the homeless pet problem in that area.

Dr. Miller especially enjoys dentistry, internal medicine cases, and senior pet care. She is excited to be joining the Intermountain Pet Hospital team and hopes to contribute to the high quality of medicine they provide. She believes her job is to keep current on the rapidly changing field of veterinary medicine, educate and listen to owners while working with them to provide the best care possible to the pet. And at the same time, she wants the pet's experience to be positive where they look forward to coming in every time.

Dr. Miller lives in Eagle with her 17-year-old daughter (Madisen), Pudge (a smart but naughty Heeler), and 2 adorable kitties....all rescues (except her daughter).
