Dr. Linda Boggie graduated from Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1987. After graduation she worked in various practices including a 24 hour animal hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, locum work for various small animal practices, and finally at a high quality small animal practice in Stockton, California where she became a partner. Dr. Boggie completed her acupuncture training and was certified by IVAS in 1995. Later that same year she began her study with Jeffrey Yuen, an 88th generation Daoist priest from the Jade Purity School. Through her studies with Mr. Yuen, Dr. Boggie has been able to apply much of his teachings of Classical Chinese Medical theory to our animal patients with great success.
She sold her veterinary practice in California in 2002 to pursue additional training in Chinese herbs, completing a veterinary Chinese herbal course at the Chi Institute in Reddick, Florida. In 2003 she moved to The Netherlands and together with her husband, also a veterinarian specialized in dentistry and orthopedics in companion animals, they have their own practice in Deventer practicing integrative medicine.
Since 1998 she has lectured for various acupuncture courses and continuing education seminars in Canada, Scandinavia, Europe, North America, Australia and Cuba. In September 2011 she was an invited keynote speaker at the first International Congress of TCVM in Lanzhou, China. An active member of the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society since 1995, she was elected President of the society in 2002 and completed her duties as President in 2008. She remains actively involved with IVAS as the Examination committee chairperson.
In November of 2014 she took and passed the advanced acupuncture certification exam offered by the AAVA (American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncturists) and is now a Fellow of the AAVA.
She enjoys sharing her knowledge with colleagues knowing that it will enhance their understanding of disease in their patients and their ability to treat these patients as well as understanding their role as healers. Any spare time is enjoyably spent with her husband, their Friesian horses, two cats a Shetland pony and two new puppies.
