Meet Our Veterinarians

About Clyde

Dr. Gillespie was born and raised in northern Utah.  After serving in the Marines, he enrolled in college with the goal of becoming a veterinarian.  He graduated from Colorado State Veterinary school in 1979 and moved his young family to Burley, Idaho where he worked for Dr. Fairbrother.  In 1981, he and Dr. Bill Fulcher started their own practice, naming it Animal Medical Clinic.  In 1988, Dr. Fulcher left to start his own practice and in 1989 Dr. Bosted arrived.  They have been partners ever since.  Dr. Gillespie’s love of veterinary medicine is evidenced by the fact that all three of his adult boys are now veterinarians too.  While Clyde originally worked mostly on cattle, over the years he developed a keen interest in dogs, cats and other pets.  They now comprise 90% of the practice.  He has many pets of his own and considers them part of the family.  He is an avid outdoorsman and loves living in this beautiful community.

About Sue

Dr. Bosted came to Idaho in 1976 and has never wanted to live anywhere else.  She graduated from University of Idaho and went on to attain her DVM from Washington State University in 1989.  While her primary focus has always been on the small animals and horses, she enjoyed working on cattle and sought a practice where she could see and treat all species.  Animal Medical Clinic fit the bill perfectly and she was hired in 1989 where she later became a full partner.  Dr. Bosted has also been the president of the Magic Valley Veterinary Medicine association as well as president of the State Association (IVMA).  She taught in the veterinary technician program at College of Southern Idaho for 6 years as well as co-authoring a book about large animal clinical techniques.  She is an avid dressage rider and fly fisher in her spare time.  She and Dr. Gillespie were married in 1998 and have one son.
