Gretchen Shuck

I was born and raised in Cheyenne, Wyoming. From a young age I always loved animals. Having a dad who was a physician helped me become interested in medicine, and from the time I was in high school I knew I wanted to become a veterinarian. I attended the University of Wyoming for my undergraduate degree in molecular biology, and then went to Colorado State University for my Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. After practicing in Billings for 5 years, I moved to Red Lodge in 2000 and opened Grizzly Peak Animal Hospital in 2001 with Rebecca Frank. My family includes my husband Mike, my late son, Mason, my two daughters, MacKenna and Addison, our black lab Rose, and Belle, our cat. In my spare time, I love to ski, hike, trail run, mountain bike, read, and hang out with my family and friends. I feel lucky to live in this special town that has so much recreation to offer and so many wonderful people!

I was born and raised in Billings, Montana. When I was in grade school, I always knew that I would end up working with animals. After pursuing studies in marine biology at the University of Oregon, I decided that Montana was where I wanted to live, and that becoming a veterinarian was my ultimate career goal. I graduated from Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine in May of 1996. After working at a high volume, comprehensive, small animal veterinary hospital in Billings, MT for five years, Gretchen and I created Grizzly Peak Animal Hospital in Red Lodge in July of 2001. I am married to Brian Frank and we have two sons named Rockwood and Keith. Our family is completed by three dogs, a cat named Santiago, and our pet chickens. Izze, who is pictured with me, is my “perfect daughter” and an adoptee from Beartooth Humane Alliance of Red Lodge.

I grew up  in Chesapeake, Virginia and spent a lot of time working in the mountains of North Carolina for different artists. While I was there, I learned a lot about animals and had the opportunity to care for many pets as a house sitter. After earning my MFA in Ceramics from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, I moved to Montana in 2014 as a Long Term Resident at the Red Lodge Clay Center. As a receptionist at Grizzly Peak, I have had the opportunity to help both the animals and people that make up this community.

I’ve always been an animal lover and my family has always had multiple dogs, cats, bunnies, etc. while growing up in Colorado.  When my husband and I moved to Red Lodge in 2001 we brought our 3 big dogs to Grizzly Peak Animal Hospital and Dr. Gretchen and Dr. Becky treated them the rest of their long lives.  Working at Grizzly Peak Animal Hospital lets me enjoy the company of many fun dogs and cats.
