The Boght Veterinary Clinic opened its doors in 1975. Robert B Lamb DVM established the practice to serve people and their pets in the Cohoes, NY area. Dr. Lamb, working in partnership with Ralph K Oles DVM oversaw a team of as many as 5 veterinarians and numerous support staff. He retired in 1995 and sold his partnership interest to David A Wagoner DVM. Dr. Wagoner and Dr. Oles enjoyed a strong 16-year partnership, benefiting our doctors, our staff and all the clients and patients they supported and cared for during those years. Dr. Oles retired in April of 2011.
Today, Dr. Wagoner and his associates; Nichole Ford DVM, Nicole Guilfoy DVM, Brandilyn Wagoner DVM, and Kimberly Ellis DVM; serve our clients and their pets with the same care and compassion for which the clinic has become known. The business has grown to serve tens of thousands of animals. The original office on Route 9 has undergone a major expansion and multiple renovations to bring the best veterinary care possible to our clients. In 2011 we expanded to serve clients in the Troy area at the Oakwood Veterinary Clinic.
During this next chapter in our history, Dr. Wagoner hopes to expand our services to better serve the clients and their pets. This includes adding veterinarians, encouraging current staff members to pursue specialized fields of study, and continuing to mentor students at the high school and college level who wish to join the veterinary care profession.
