Dr. Moulton bought the Animal Health Clinic in 2001. He went to school at Purdue University School of Medicine graduating with honors. He loves veterinary medicine and really enjoys helping his clients with all of their needs. Being very family oriented you will often see Dr. Moulton have his kids around learning to help out as well. His favorite part of his job "working with owners to achieve the most from their relationship with their horses and/or any of their pets."
I don't remember a time when we haven't had this incredible Doc with us. Graduating from Auburn University, she has been in Idaho since she left veterinary school. She has been such an excellent doctor over the years we have come to value her experience and medical knowledge is outstanding! Thanks to her we for all her hard work over the years.

Rachel Keckler Hanson grew up in Dubois, Idaho, where she spent her summers riding horses, swimming in the creek, and participating in the local 4-H club activities. Later, her family moved to Fort Hall, where her summers revolved around horses, the county fair, and junior rodeo. Rodeo was a priority in high school, and here’s where she met her bull-riding high school sweetheart, Kolton. Rachel graduated from Skyline High School in 2015 and spent the summer shadowing Dr. Moulton & Dr. Jacobsen here at Animal Health Clinic. Rachel moved to Utah, to attend Utah State University for undergraduate. She served as the USU Rodeo Team’s Vice President, participated in the animal science club, and worked in a lab researching stallion fertility. In the summers, Rachel came back to Blackfoot and worked as a veterinary technician here at AHC, and in 2017 she and Kolton married. She graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Animal, Dairy, and Veterinary Science in May of 2018. She was accepted into the WIMU Regional Program of Veterinary Medicine Class of 2022. She spent most of her time at the university farm helping with herd checks at the dairy, embryo transfers in cattle, horses, sheep, and goats, and c-sections. Spending so much time at the farm that she was selected as the 2019 USU Summer Large Animal Intern. In the fall of 2020, Rachel and Kolton moved to Pullman, Washington, to finish vet school. During the pandemic she found a local sheep producer who needed help with night lambing and a professor who traveled around rural Washington performing herd work. Often the only student there, she did hundreds of bull soundness exams, bangs vaccinations, random surgeries, and palpating. She joined WSU’s bovine palpation competition team, winning 3rd place at a symposium including all the major veterinary schools in the US. During her clinical year, her elective rotations included theriogenology (reproduction) and she traveled with the field veterinarian. She also interned at Idaho Equine Hospital to gain additional experience with high-quality equine sports medicine. Her passion lies in herd health and large animal reproduction. She plans to give back to the organizations that fostered her passion by supporting local 4-H clubs, FFA teams, and rodeo associations. In her free time, Rachel enjoys watching movies at home with her husband and their furry family of 2 cats (Asphalt and Burt), and their mutt, Ted. She’s a movie buff and loves all genres, but especially John Wayne and Stephen King. On the side, she has a custom leather tooling business that keeps her way busy and has recently had a surge of business creating leather bouquet wraps for weddings across the US. Rachel loves to travel and is excited to be able to consistently ride her horses again, start up a registered Hereford herd, and help her in-laws with their new bucking bull venture.
