Dr. Brett Bingham

Dr. Brett Bingham

Dr. Bingham joined Intermountain Pet Hospital's veterinary team in 2001. His path to Intermountain began on his father's dairy farm in the small town of Gooding, ID, where he developed a love of working with animals. He wrestled in college at Ricks College (now BYU-Idaho) and Boise State University where he received All-American Honors and graduated with his Bachelor's degree in Science. He received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Washington State University, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2000. His area of medical interest includes diagnostic endoscopy, laparoscopy, ultrasound, dentistry, and reproduction.

Dr. Bingham firmly believes that the bond between pets and people fosters healthy and happy living. He finds great satisfaction in enriching the lives of those in the community by providing exceptional medical and surgical services to all his patients. His home life includes his wonderful family--his wife, five children, dog Milo, and two cats. Whether he's at home or work, he stays busy. His favorite hobbies are cruising around on his motorcycle with his five brothers, skiing (water or snow), mountain biking, running, and working on his mini-farm located in the beautiful Treasure Valley.

Dr Steven BeilDr. Steven Beil

Dr. Beil joined Intermountain Pet Hospital in January of 2021. He grew up just outside Chicago, Illinois, and earned his BS at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin. After completing his undergraduate degree, he traveled to Scotland, and in 2015 he completed his veterinary degree at The University of Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery. He then returned home with his soon-to-be wife Mary (also a veterinarian), moving back to her hometown in East Texas.

After spending the last 5 years working with small animals in a first opinion practice, he and his wife packed their things and headed to Boise in search of new adventures. Although change can be uncomfortable, he enjoys taking on the challenges that life presents, both in the clinic and his personal life. Over the past 5 years, he has found dentistry, internal medicine, and surgery to be his areas of interest. He has always strived to achieve the best care and quality of life for all his patients and clients.

He and his wife share their home with Stormy, the cat, and Stu, the dog. During his free time, Dr. Beil loves to bike, hike, camp, etc. He and his wife cannot wait to explore all that living here has to offer!

DrGunthnerFFDr. Emily Guenthner

Growing up, Dr. Emily Guenthner always knew she wanted to be a veterinarian.  She said medicine is like a puzzle, with so much variety in the profession, and she always wanted to be a voice for the voiceless. And, of course, she loves animals.

Dr. Guenthner is a proud Idaho native. After getting her undergraduate degree from the University of Missouri, she took a big leap to attend Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on the island of St. Kitts and Nevis, which is south of the British Virgin Islands. She graduated in 2018.

Dr. Guenthner then came back to the mainland and did a clinical year at the University of Missouri. Then off to Oklahoma State University for a small animal rotating internship. She then moved to Texas, where she did a surgical internship at Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center. From Texas, Dr. Guenthner moved to California for about a year, working at a general practice clinic before returning to Idaho to be with her family.

When Dr. Guenthner isn't working, she likes to read manga, build legos, snuggle with her fat cat, and ride her bike when Idaho weather permits. 

Her fur babies include Leonard, a retired blood donor greyhound from Missouri, Dancer, a retired racing greyhound from Dallas, and Libby, my domestic short hair cat.

Dr-Holcombe-FFDr. Christopher Holcombe

Dr. Christopher Holcombe grew up on a family farm in a small town near San Antonio, Texas. Before joining the veterinary field, Dr. Holcombe attended Baylor University in Waco, TX, where he received a bachelor's degree in linguistics and psychology, afterward getting a job as a legal researcher at the Texas Senate in Austin, TX. Dr. Holcombe quickly decided a legal profession was not in his future, and he began working as a technician at a mixed animal clinic in his hometown while preparing for veterinary school. 

Dr. Holcombe earned his doctorate of veterinary medicine from Texas A&M University and moved to Idaho with his fiance--who you may already know as Dr. Caroline Cunningham--to begin practicing as a mixed animal veterinarian in rural Oregon. Dr. Holcombe has a passion for emergency medicine, feline medicine, and soft tissue surgery. He is excited to be joining the Intermountain Pet Hospital team to pursue these interests. 

Dr. Holcombe and his fiance have a dog named Starla and two cats named Marky and Stringbean. In his free time, Dr. Holcombe enjoys practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu, playing board games, reading, and exploring the beautiful landscapes in Idaho and Oregon!
