Dr. Garry Gotfredson

Veterinarian and Owner

Dr. Gotfredson grew up around livestock in Worland, WY, where helping the local veterinarian was a joy. He got his first taste of the veterinary field working on the necropsy floor of the Wyoming State Veterinary Lab, and in 2004, he earned a degree in Animal Science and Pre-veterinary Medicine from the University of Wyoming. In 2008, he graduated with high honors from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine followed by a clinical year at Iowa State University. While in vet school, Dr. Gotfredson was in lab groups with his brother, and both were awarded small and large animal surgical proficiency awards. 

He and his wife Nicole, a certified veterinary technician, purchased Buffalo Veterinary Clinic from Dr. Kurt Walters in 2022. Dr. Gotfredson truly enjoys working in a mixed-animal rural practice because of the variety of patients, cases and conditions seen and treated every day. His special interests are small animal surgery (especially orthopedics) ultrasound, equine surgery and medicine, bovine medicine and surgery and herd health.

Dr. Gotfredson and his wife have four children, Levi, Lexi, Gray and Elise. They are joined by two French bull dogs, Charlie and Darla, a golden retriever named Hazel and two cats, Newt and Hero. Dr. Gotfredson enjoys spending his free time with his family in the mountains, going on side-by-side trips, camping, hunting, fishing and exploring.
