Gem Veterinary Clinic has been providing veterinary care to the Gooding area since the 1960s. The clinic has remained in its original location, undergoing several big renovations through the decades. Many young Gooding-ites grew up in this veterinary clinic experiencing firsthand the compassion and hard work involved in caring for Gooding’s pets and herds. The rich history and community involvement of this clinic will be proudly continued by its newest veterinarian, Dr. Amber Parish. Dr. Parish bought Gem Veterinary Clinic from Dr. Jack Amen in March 2018. She re-branded the practice as Gooding Veterinary Clinic.
Dr. Amber Parish and her husband, Jake, graduated in 2016 and moved to Mountain Home, Idaho. Jake started working as an accountant at FBWB Accounting Firm (now Eide Bailly) here in Gooding while Amber worked at Knight Veterinary Clinic in Mountain Home. Jake was warmly welcomed into his new firm and the community of Gooding. So, when Amber was approached about purchasing Gem Veterinary Clinic an idea started brewing. After over a year of consideration and planning, Jake and Amber decided to buy the clinic and move their little family closer to home.
