Dr. Moore and his wife Shelly
When Dr. Moore returned to Cody in 1983, he started his career as a Feedlot Veterinarian at Wyoming Feeders in Powell, Wyoming. He also worked part-time for: Dr. Dave Asay in Worland, Dr. Ray Randall in Bridger, Montana, and Dr. Tom Roberts and Dr. Malcolm Blessing in Cody. In addition to his numerous veterinarian positions, Dr. Moore taught a course on Herd Health Management at Northern Wyoming Community College for 10 years.
In 1989, Dr. Moore opened Cody Veterinary Hospital in the facility previously owned by Dr. Tom Roberts. In 1995, Cody Veterinary Hospital expanded and moved to its current location. Dr. Moore is a mixed-animal veterinarian, specializing in all aspects of veterinary medicine. His patients include: all small animals, all large animals and exotic animals. He also has experience in the collection, processing and certification of bovine embryos, which are shipped, all around the world. According to Dr. Moore, every day at Cody Veterinary Hospital is a learning experience and never boring to say the least.
Dr. Moore is extremely proud of his two children and four grandchildren. When he is not at work, he enjoys the mountains, hunting, fishing and his numerous horses and mules.
Mrs. Moore was also raised in Cody where her parents worked as teachers. Shelly met her husband, Dr. Scott Moore, in the first grade. They both went on to graduate from Cody High School and the rest is history! She attended the University of Wyoming for two years, and then received her Bachelor of Science in Accounting in 1983, from Kansas State University.
Since returning to Cody, she has raised her and Dr. Moore’s two children and worked in various accounting positions – one that included frequent (and smelly) trips to the feedlot in Powell. When Dr. Moore opened Cody Veterinary Hospital, in 1989, Shelly took on the roles of receptionist, veterinary assistant, accountant, kennel assistant and chief bottle washer. Currently, she helps out Cody Vet by doing the accounting, running the errands and filling in when staff is on vacation.
Shelly’s two children and four grandchildren bring great joy to her life and she spends as much time as possible with them. She also enjoys accompanying Dr. Moore on his trips into the mountains. Recently, she checked “bluff charge by a grizzly bear” and “paragliding off a 10,000 foot mountain in Jackson, Wyoming” off her Bucket List.
