Description

Dr. Don Ley opened Fourmile Veterinary Clinic’s doors in 1975 at 151 Fourmile Lane
to service Fremont Counties’ large and small animals needs. For the next 26 years he
practiced as a solo veterinarian. In 2001, his son Jeremy Ley, DVM joined
the practice, and his sister Samantha Menegatti, DVM followed in the family footsteps
in 2005.

In the spring of 2008 the practice was moved to its present location on Lincoln
Avenue, into a larger, newer facility that will allow us to better serve our patients for years to
come. Today, the practice is a thriving six doctor veterinary practice.

Dr. Ley is one of very few veterinarians in the country that test for pap in cattle. This test is a strong predictor of a cow susceptibility to heart failure at high altitudes. This is an illness common to ranching in the western United States, but pap tests allow ranchers to make better decisions on their desired herd and herd sizes.
