Dr. Scoggin grew up in Boulder, CO where his parents took part in rodeo and bred running Quarter Horses. Despite this background, he instead aspired to become either a professional basketball player or snowboarder. Subsequent physics lessons inside and out of the classroom eventually changed his mind and steered him back to horses. He attended both graduate and veterinary school at Colorado State University where he obtained a Master of Science degree in Equine Reproductive Physiology in 2001 and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. He went on to serve a one-year internship at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute, which was then followed by an associate veterinarian position at Pioneer Equine Hospital in Oakdale, CA. In 2008, Dr. Scoggin accepted a position as a resident veterinarian at Claiborne Farm where he practiced until 2015. He became a Diplomate of the American College of Theriogenologists (animal reproduction) in 2012, and later joined the team at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in July 2015.
Dr. Scoggin’s professional interests include stallion reproductive physiology and in vitro fertilization (IVF) techniques. Dr. Scoggin enjoys spending time with his family, playing pick-up basketball and flying down hills on a skateboard, snowboard or OneWheel.
