    Elizabeth Boggier
    Owner and CEO

    My inspiration for making my veterinary dream come true was Larry Lion, a beloved stuffed animal I had at the age of two. When Larry’s string was pulled, he roared. One day, to my dismay, the string stayed out. Larry Lion was broken. My thoughtful babysitter at the time offered to take Larry home for an “operation.” I still remember feeling frightened for him, but my babysitter said not to worry. She’d take good care of him. The next day, Larry Lion came back home. He wasn’t able to talk anymore—they had to remove his “voice box” but otherwise he was restitched and as good as new. I could have cared less that he didn’t speak anymore. I had my best friend back. It was at that moment, I knew I’d one day become a veterinarian and take care of other people’s much-loved best friends. It’s been 40 years and I can still remember that feeling of pure joy.
