Dr. Patrick Doherty - Veterinarian

Dr. Patrick Doherty is the original founder of Boyd Lake Veterinary Center.

Dr. Patrick Doherty was born in Brooklyn, New York, but his family moved to Loveland when he was in second grade and he has lived in Colorado ever since. He attended Monroe Elementary, Conrad Ball Junior High (yes, junior high), and Loveland High School. He received his Animal Science degree in 1987 and his DVM in 1991, both from Colorado State University.

After working 11 years at Mission Viejo Veterinary Clinic in Aurora, Colorado, Dr. Doherty decided it was time to start out on his own. He built Boyd Lake Veterinary Center and opened for business on July 1, 2002, with zero clients. He married his wife Cassandra in 1998 and together they have two daughters, Jenna and Evelyn, one dog, Gillis, and two cats, Blacky and Bug.
