MountainView Veterinary Hospital was founded by Dr. Elizabeth Boggier, in Rockaway, New Jersey. She has been a doctor of veterinary medicine for over 2 decades and still thinks it’s the best job ever. Over 10 years ago, she decided it was time to open her own business to reflect the commitment to care and compassion she was already practicing daily. Dr. Boggier started MVH to fulfill a dream she’s had since the age of two. It’s been her passion to care for animals and their owners.
Dr. Boggier’s inspiration for making this dream come true was Larry Lion, a beloved stuffed animal she had at the age of two. When Larry’s string was pulled, he roared. One day, to her dismay, the string stayed out. Larry Lion was broken. Elizabeth’s thoughtful babysitter at the time, offered to take Larry home for an “operation.” Elizabeth remembers feeling frightened for her best friend but her 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 re-stitched 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, Elizabeth knew she’d one day become a veterinarian and take care of other people’s much-loved best friends. “It’s been over 40 years and I can still remember that feeling of pure joy.” Dr. Boggier welcomes you to MountainView Veterinary Hospital—she’s waiting to give you and your pet a feeling of pure joy too!
