Carly Ross, DVM
Dr. Carly Ross was born and raised in Northern California. She attended Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine and fell in love with the midwest, and a midwesterner. She and her husband John, spent a year in New York where she worked as a hospital and ambulatory intern at Rhinebeck Equine. In an area rich in thoroughbred and performance horses Carly gained vast amounts of experience in lameness and surgery.
Prior to becoming a veterinarian, Carly attended farrier school and worked in her own farrier business in California. She has a special interest in the equine hoof and associated lameness. Carly has also enjoyed volunteering with Rural Area Veterinary Services, a practice providing services in areas without resident veterinarians. She has travelled to Mexico, and Native American reservations in California and South Dakota with the group castrating, deworming and vaccinating horses, donkeys and mules.
Carly shares her life with her husband John, her horses Pumbaa and Dolphin, her mule Mouse and her dogs Dayton, Ralph and Charlie. She enjoys swimming, and all types of horse activities.
Rozann Anderson, DVM
Dr. Rozann Anderson was born and raised in Bemidji, Minnesota. She grew up showing in western performance events and saw much success in the Minnesota open show associations. Her extensive show career gave Rozann a great knowledge of what is required of both horse and rider in order to win and she understands the special needs and ailments of the equine athlete.
Rozann attended Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation she and her husband, Scott, moved to Texas where Rozann had the opportunity to work on cutting and working cow horses. When Scott was offered a job in Des Moines the couple happily moved back north. Rozann saw an opportunity to further her training and took an equine surgery intern position at Iowa State University where she further developed her lameness and surgical skills. She has devoted much time and energy to the development of Iowa Equine Veterinary Services, I think you will like what she has done!
When she is not devoting herself to veterinary medicine, Dr. Anderson enjoys family time with Scott, their two dogs Cletus and Beans, two cats Banjo and Ukulele, and her horse Olly.
