Liz Routh, DVM

Although originally from Indiana, Liz completed her doctorate of veterinary medicine at Iowa State University in 2016.  Following graduation, she completed an equine internship focusing in general practice at Carolina Equine Hospital in NC. Afterwards, she continued on as an associate veterinarian at another central NC practice before deciding to move back to the midwest.  Her main areas of interest include preventative medicine, herd health, dentistry, and ophthalmology. Outside of work, Liz likes to read, craft, maintain her aquariums and ride whenever possible!

Horse history

I’m not riding at the moment due to recently retiring my OTTB mare, Maggie.  However, I try to take advantage and ride whenever I find the opportunity! I grew up riding dressage and was a working student at several barns, however, I also dabbled in eventing, hunters, and even in a little combined driving.

What is your role?

My main area of focus is providing on-farm care including preventative medicine, herd health, dentistry, and more.  I like having the opportunity to see horses in their normal, everyday, environment to better understand their needs.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I enjoy helping people.  To me that means everything from helping horse owners provide the best care for their horses, actually treating their horses and everything in between!

What are your greatest skills and how do they benefit horses and their owners?

I think one of my greatest skills is showing compassion.  I work hard to try and put myself in my client’s shoes to better understand their future goals with their horse, whether to perform well in an upcoming competition or to be comfortable in the pasture.  This way I can try and come up with a solution that fits the needs of that particular person and their horse.
