We have three very seasoned veterinarians who have been in practice for many years and during that time they have developed skills that make them unique in the types of services that we offer here at Mountain River Veterinary Hospital. We offer laparoscopic spays on dogs and cats which has allowed clients to get their pets spayed with 70-80% less pain post surgery. In addition for our cattle clients we have Artificial Insemination services and have on staff, a certified AI manager and certified AI techs. 

Our doctors do an awesome job with after care in helping to make sure clients can be as active as possible. We also practice equine reproduction work which includes housing mares, artificially inseminating mares, foaling mares, and ultrasounding for pregnancies and breeding soundness exams.

We have a boarding addition to our clinic and have kennels available to accommodate even the largest of dog breeds. Dogs get let out into a huge outdoor run multiple times daily and during the warm months of the year they also have their own personal out door run attached to the inside kennel. We also have a doggie treadmill for those pets who may require a little more exercise, or they just need a walk and it's way too cold outside.

At Mountain River Vet we are happy to offer a number of resources that enable you to learn about how to better care for your pets. Please feel free to browse our site, particularly the informational articles. The best veterinary care for animals is ongoing nutrition and problem prevention, so becoming knowledgeable about preventative pet care is essential to the ongoing success of your animal’s health. If you have any questions, call 208-745-5003 or contact us and we'll promptly get back to you. Our Rigby veterinarian office is very easy to get to - just check out the map below! We also welcome you to subscribe to our newsletter, which is created especially for Rigby pet owners.

    Ethos Equestrian Center
  • "Big Thank You to Mountain River Vet Hospital for saving our beloved dog , Maddy, after getting into rat poison when visiting a friends home. Now I will ask friends if they have any poisons out when we visit a home!!!! The quick response as soon as we walked through the door and overnight care was very professional. Maddy is almost back to her normal self. ( We had called a couple vets that were closer to incident as we knew time was so important in starting treatment but they couldn’t take her. Mountain River didn’t hesitate, said bring her in!) again many thanks ."

  • "I made a last minute appointment to have 3 male goats castrated. Not many vets work on goats. They were able to get me in the same day. It was a long appointment as they were super busy with a few emergencies as well as regular appointments, but we got it done. So glad they are here!"
