Our Doctors

Dr. Richard Schwahn, DVM, Owner | Altitude Veterinary Hospital

Dr. Richard Schwahn, DVM, Owner

Dr. Schwahn joined the practice in 1999 and became an owner in 2001 when Dr. Popish retired. In recognition of this new chapter in the life of the clinic, we opened with a new name, Altitude Veterinary Hospital, in the fall of 2012.

In January 2013, Dr. Tangney Gray became the hospital’s newest partner/owner. Dr. Schwahn and Dr. Gray have been privileged to work with an excellent team of doctors and staff and look forward to many more years serving Casper, providing excellent pet care and community service.

Dr. Schwahn’s special interests include dentistry and pursuing continuing education in this area as often as his schedule permits. He is also a member of the Casper Rotary Club. Prior to entering the veterinary field, he served three years as a Military Policeman in the United States Army, during which time he was stationed in Germany. Living overseas allowed Richard, and his wife Michelle, opportunities to travel and gather many valuable and exciting memories together.

Dr. Schwahn and his wife have two children, a son, Taylor, and a daughter, Madeline. While their family tends to be spread around the country, their family in Casper includes their friends at First Baptist Church, where they enjoy a variety of activities. Born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, Dr. Schwahn is a fan of all things Husker, especially football. Other favorite activities include hiking, yoga, home brewing, and spending time with family and friends, including his two furry friends, Rudy and Tino.

Dr. Tangney Gray-Dockham, DVM, Owner | Altitude Veterinary Hospital

Dr. Tangney Gray-Dockham, DVM, Owner

Dr. Tangney Gray-Dockham, a Casper native, graduated from Natrona County High School in 2003. She then pursued her undergraduate degree in biology from Casper College. During her undergraduate work, Dr. Gray began volunteering and then working as a Veterinary Assistant at Altitude Veterinary Hospital (Popish Vet Clinic). Dr. Gray moved to Fort Collins in 2006 to attend veterinary school. In May of 2010, she graduated the Professional Veterinary Medical Program at Colorado State University, with honors. At this time, she re-joined the Altitude team as an associate veterinarian. In January of 2013, she became part owner, partnering with Dr. Schwahn. Her professional interests include internal medicine, surgery, and avian medicine. Tangney married her high school sweetheart in 2008. She and her husband, Kodi, share a home west of Casper with five German Shorthair Pointers, two parrots, and one cat.
Dr. Angela Bell, DVM, Associate | Altitude Veterinary Hospital

Dr. Angela Bell, DVM, Associate

Dr. Angela Bell was raised in Larkspur, CO, with her six siblings. Her passion and devotion to animals and their well-being inspired her to become a veterinarian. She completed her bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University-Idaho, her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Ross University School of Medicine, and her clinical year at Kansas State University in 2012.

Angela enjoys serving the community both professionally and personally through her work and in her free time, currently serving as a leader in the Wyoming Veterinary Medical Association (WVMA) and as a spokesman for the veterinary profession throughout the State of Wyoming. Angela has been a speaker for many youth education programs. She works closely with the Wyoming Veterinary Technician Association (WVTA) and is excited to be the veterinarian for the 2018 Casper Mountain Sled Dog Races. She also has served as the veterinarian for the Natrona County Fair providing veterinary inspections.

Dr. Bell is currently an Associate Veterinarian at Altitude Veterinary Hospital in Casper, Wyoming. At Altitude, each day is filled with all aspects of advanced veterinary medicine from preventative care and wellness screenings to surgeries and critical care procedures. Altitude is the only American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited hospital in Casper and is equipped to provide advanced diagnostics and treatments. The hospital is knit together with a positive and progressive team atmosphere.

Angela is dedicated to her profession and continuing her education. She recently completed an advanced dental training course from Animal Dental Care and Oral Surgery Specialists in Colorado Springs, CO, and has also completed courses in oncology, chronic kidney disease, ophthalmology, wildlife and is currently working toward becoming Fear Free Certified.

Outside of her practice, Angela enjoys spending time outdoors with family and traveling. Angela spent several years living, studying, and working overseas. Some of the outstanding places she has visited include Madrid, Spain; Azores, Portugal; Perm, Russia; St. Kitts, Caribbean, and Alaska, USA. A trip to Togo, Africa, in 2017 was an insightful experience for her, visiting villages full of humble and joyful people. This experience is the inspiration behind Angela’s new personal endeavor, establishing an organization called Paws for Education; a non-profit organization to help fund children’s education in Africa.

At home, Angela enjoys being with her four rescue animals and a loving husband who shares her passion for Wyoming. Her dedication to animals has been a driving force for service and excellence in her career and will continue to provide deep meaning in her life.
