Ponderosa Veterinary Hospital, which has served the Flathead Valley for over 30 years, was purchased earlier this year by veterinarians Pamela Buchli and Roger Fleming from Dr. Scott Wendling. After visiting the area nearly every year for the past 10 years, Drs. Buchli and Fleming are excited to make the Flathead Valley their home. Dr. Buchli and Dr. Fleming graduated from the University of Wisconsin Veterinary Medical School in 2001. Prior to veterinary school, Dr. Buchli attended Dartmouth Medical School in New Hampshire where she received her PhD in Pharmacology and Toxicology. Dr. Fleming worked as a certified veterinary technician in Florida. He spent several years working at the wildlife rehabilitation center, C.R.O.W. on Sanibel Island.
