Dr. Bojrab met Dr. St. John when they purchased four restaurants in the region – Uly’s Tavern and Lynda’s Bon appetit and Popper’s Tavern. These four businesses were both owned by the same family. They opened Tesson Ferry Veterinary Hospital on Thanksgiving weekend 1990. Both veterinarians were born and raised in Arnold, MO. Both worked with Schutzhund clubs and birds of prey at Busch Gardens. Their work together ignited their interest in veterinary medicine. They received their veterinary degrees and joined the Tesson Ferry Agricultural Center team in 1995 as associate veterinarians.
