Dr. Eve Boggs, DVM, CVA attended Texas A&M University for a portion of her undergraduate education before transferring to and graduating from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 2003. She began working for a wonderful and busy small animal practice in Columbus, Ohio, after graduating from vet school. One of her early mentors introduced her to Chinese medicine, to which she was quickly drawn as it opened a whole new world of options to help her patients. She continued with training from the Chi Institute in Florida and became certified in veterinary acupuncture in 2006. In 2009, she received further training in Chinese medicine from the Chi Institute, this time in food therapy.
Dr. Eve’s interest in alternative & Eastern medicine complements her education and experience in conventional Western medicine, surgery and dentistry. Her expertise in both Western & Eastern styles of veterinary medicine makes her a wonderful addition to Harmony Animal Hospital by allowing both styles of medicine to be offered, which is especially important as more people seek a holistic approach to their own medical care and the care of their pets.
Originally from the small and beautiful town of Walhalla, South Carolina, Dr. Eve spent a lot of her early childhood with her grandparents who farmed and raised hogs for bacon and sausage, which they sold and bartered with other members of the community for items such as milk from the dairy across the road. Though Dr. Eve did not get to fulfill her original plan to practice mixed animal medicine, true to her roots, she was happy to relocate back to the South, this time to the Apex area in 2007. She was married to her vet school sweetheart in 2010. Dr. Eve and her husband have two sons—Kenan and Rowan. One day she hopes to have a small ‘farm’ of her own.
When she is not practicing veterinary medicine, you can find Dr. Eve chasing her boys around, traveling, crafting, and cooking. She has a passion for trying new foods from cultures around the world and loves to crochet.
Dr. Eve has a cat named Emma and a dog named Gretta, both of whom she and her husband rescued in vet school. As her pets have reached an elderly age, she appreciates the many modalities of care that a holistic approach can provide and strongly believes it is one of the reasons they are still with her.
Dr. Eve’s biggest passion in veterinary medicine is client education. She believes it is imperative that owners understand why she recommends the tests and treatments she does and that they feel completely comfortable trusting their pets to her care. She welcomes all questions from clients and strives to incorporate pet parents in as much of their pets’ care as possible.
