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. During its 40 year history the business has grown to serve tens of thousands of clients and their pets in most cities and towns in the Capital Region. The facility itself has undergone major expansion and renovations.
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. They oversaw the hiring of four additional veterinarians. Under their leadership the doctors and staff were able to form a strong healthcare team.
Dr. Oles retired in April of 2011 and Dr. Wagoner and his associates; Nichole Ford DVM, Bernardo Mongil DVM, Nicole Guilfoy DVM, and John Polnak DVM have done their best to treat Dr. Oles’ lifelong clients and their patients with the same care and compassion for which he was known and loved. 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.
