Dr. Sohaila L. Maleki – DVM


Dr. Maleki grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She received her Veterinary Doctorate degree from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine and finished her clinical training from UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. After graduation, she moved back to Boise with Dr. Linenberger to begin her veterinary career. She had originally moved to Boise in 1993 and always knew that it would be the perfect place to start a family and eventually open a veterinary practice. In 2007, Habitat Veterinary Hospital opened its doors. It was important for Dr Maleki to create a unique environment that reflected her passion for the animals and their people in the Boise community. She stays committed to offering the highest quality medicine and providing options for the health and wellness of every pet. She provides every owner with the knowledge, education and support to be an integral part of their pet’s healthcare decisions

Dr. Maleki is trained in acupuncture with the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS) and is working toward her certification in Veterinary Food Therapy from The Chi Institute. She takes a preventative approach to medicine, integrating both traditional Chinese veterinary medicine (TCVM) and modern western therapies for complete holistic veterinary care for every pet. She has great interest in geriatric medicine and implements a multi-modal approach to pain management with consultations on quality of life care. By focusing on nutrition, acupuncture and internal medicine, Dr Maleki offers a safe and effective approach to enhancing the overall health and maintaining the best quality of life for her animal patients.

Dr. Maleki and Dr. Linenberger balance their time between Habitat and their two busy children. Rowan is an active and kind-hearted young man who loves soccer, skateboarding and biking. Finley is a sporty and creative fashionista who loves to read, ride horses and run like the wind. Both kids love to spend time at Habitat, their home away from home.
