Dr. Kelly Rankin


Dr. Kelly Rankin has been committed to the Flathead Animal Clinic since March, 1992, when she began working as an associate veterinarian. She has continued to serve the community from the well-known downtown Kalispell location since purchasing the practice in January, 2001.

Dr. Rankin is a dyed-in-the-wool animal lover and has shared most of her life with many beloved pets. There are very few pictures of her as a kid when there wasn’t an animal in her arms, lap, or by her side. She truly understands the joy, companionship, and meaning that pets bring to our lives.Originally from Miami, Florida, she is a 1989 graduate of the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in Gainesville.

She lives in Kalispell with husband, Al Otto, and their beloved pets, Piper, a Cairn Terrier, and Rosie, a Rag Doll cat. Her hobbies, besides animals, include golf, camping, playing guitar, photography, and computing/technology.
