In 1978, he teamed up with Dr. A. Dean Burgess to open the Tesson Ferry Veterinary Clinic. Doctors Bojrab and Burgess both shared a special interest in veterinary surgery and took many referrals from local veterinarians for the more delicate surgeries that required more attention in the 1970's and 80', this was before specialty practices were available/open.
