Dr. Dale R. Diesel

Veterinarian

About Dr. Diesel

Dr. Dale R. Diesel graduated from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in 1981. After graduation, he joined a six-doctor practice in Breese, Illinois, where he cared for the companion animals of the practice while also making farm calls to the numerous dairy and swine farms in the area.

In 1986, he left practice to work for Purina Mills, Inc., where his responsibilities included product development and technical support for animal health products.

Dr. Diesel joined Yorkshire Animal Hospital in October 1992, then purchased the practice in July 1993. The most gratifying experience a veterinarian can have is to watch successive generations of family members trust him with the care of their four-legged family members.

He enjoys the beauty of nature and wildlife. Sasha and Cali, two of his three dogs, enjoy spending time on the couch more than outdoors. While Jax, a Labrador Retriever, enjoys hunting and fishing with him. Dr. Diesel relaxes by spending time with family/friends and working on his property in southern Illinois.

Dr. Daniel Boggs

Veterinarian

About Dr. Boggs

Dr. Daniel Boggs graduated from Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 2014. After school, he returned to North Louisiana, where he practiced equine (horse) medicine exclusively before heading out west.

Dr. Boggs then worked at an emergency critical care and a general practice hospital in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas before starting his career as a relief veterinarian. He has practiced as a relief veterinarian for several years, working in Arizona, California, Colorado, Louisiana, Nevada, and now adding Missouri to the list when joining Yorkshire Animal Hospital.

Dr. Boggs has continued to and still does practice equine medicine and travels back to Louisiana to do so. He is an avid snow and water skier and likes being in the mountains or on the water as much as possible. He loves hiking, biking, and camping, especially when touring the national parks. No matter how far from home, though, he can always be found rooting for his Louisiana State University Tigers and New Orleans Saints…. GEAUX TIGERS!

Dr. Alex Turner

Veterinarian

About Dr. Turner

Dr. Turner was born and raised in Memphis, TN. He attended The University of Tennessee, Knoxville for undergrad and graduated from their College of Veterinary Medicine in 2021. During vet school, Dr. Turner discovered his love of small animal medicine and his role in caring for family’s beloved four-legged animals. After graduation, Dr. Turner decided to move to St. Louis and he joined the Yorkshire team that summer. He is eager to start his career with us as a veterinarian.

Outside of work, Dr. Turner spends most of his time exploring his new city and especially loves trying new restaurants. He is an Eagle Scout and has always had a love of the outdoors and hiking. On weekends, you can usually find him running around the local city parks. He also loves a relaxing weekend watching Netflix with his kitty companion, Rowena.

Lynne Marie

Registered Veterinary Technician

About Lynn Marie

Lynn Marie graduated from Jefferson College and is proud to now be on the Yorkshire Animal Hospital team. She has two fantastic kids, along with a 27-year-old cockatiel, a blab (Bassett/lab mix), and a horse. Lynn Marie likes hockey, swimming, and riding her horse when she isn’t working. Hanging out with the ‘kiddos’ isn’t so bad either.

Haley

Technician

About Haley

Haley graduated in 2014 from Brown Mackie College with a degree in veterinary technology. Haley has Fear Free certification and has worked in shelter and emergency medicine before. When it comes to the veterinary medicine field, Haley has a particular interest in behavioral medicine.

Miranda

Technician

About Miranda
Miranda is one of our amazing technicians that comes to us from Barnhart, Missouri. She has earned her Bachelor’s in Biomedical Science at Southeast Missouri State University, with a Minor in German. Her ultimate goal is to enroll in Vet School in hopes to become a Veterinarian, where she would love to focus on small animals, exotics, & possibly dermatology. Miranda’s most favorite part of being on the technician team here at Yorkshire is having the opportunity to interact with our incredible clients & their pets. She also enjoys learning something new with each day, as no day is the same around here. When Miranda is not in her scrubs, she can be found reading, enjoying local bands shows, or hanging out with her own dogs, cat, & reptiles!

Wes

Technician

About Wes
Originally from Vegas, our beloved technician, Wes, comes to us all the way from Seattle where he attended the University of Washington studying Applied Physics & Astronomy. Wes deeply missed working in Veterinary Medicine as he enjoys assisting in surgeries, making connections with new pet owners, & even working with aggressive patients to form a safe space where they can (hopefully) develop trust. Wes’s ultimate goal is to go back to school to become a RN in the operating room. When Wes isn’t in his scrubs here at Yorkshire, he can be found working with LGBTQ+ Youth, leatherworking, working on his published ongoing book series, camping, snorkeling, or snake whispering. He truly is the jack of all trades- we could all use a Wes in our lives to keep things adventurous, kind, & inventive!

Marge

Receptionist
About Marge
Marge is a St. Louis native! She has been involved in the Veterinary Field for many years as a technician, rescue worker, pet sitter, & now as one of our beautiful smiles behind the Front Desk as a Receptionist. Marge’s goal is to one day open her own rescue! Her favorite part of being apart of our team is that it allows her to learn how to be a better pet parent, & in turn, help other pet parents better themselves. She also enjoys being a voice for the voiceless, something that we all try to be for our four-legged companions! When Marge isn’t behind our front desk, she can be found hanging out with her pack of dogs at home, curled up watching true crime documentaries or listening to her favorite spooky podcasts.

Therese

Receptionist
About Therese
Therese comes to us from South St. Louis, where she has enjoyed spending her time cross-stitching, gardening, & traveling. She has spent her years since high school working in office settings and even started her Masters in Business over at St. Louis University. Therese joins our team as one of our amazing Receptionists & has enjoyed having the opportunity to love on all the puppies & kitties coming in for care. She is driven by hard work, honesty, & having the strength to be herself. Her ultimate goal is to retire and move out of state, somewhere south, warm, & close to the ocean- what we’d give to join her!

Abby

About Abby

Abby is a twelve-year-old spry Labrador Missouri native but raised in Louisiana. She knows no bounds. Abby graduated with an honorary degree in veterinary medicine alongside Dr. Daniel Boggs from Louisiana State University in 2014.

She enjoys running circles around any human that comes her way, especially if they have a tennis ball. Abby loves to explore her surroundings of rough terrain in the mountains. She also enjoys a casual stroll down a walkway, exercise on land, and swimming in the lakes, ponds, and marshlands.

However, in her leisure time, she will take a nap, dreaming of her next vacation from the clinic or her next house call with Dr. Boggs.
Abby’s specialty is being a taste tester of the grill for Louisiana boils. This is between just Abby and the world – don’t tell Dr. Boggs. But, she especially loves to taste test on the side. How else do you think she gets her expertise?
