Albia veterinary clinic hires new veterinarian

ALBIA — Hiring local is important to Garver's Animal Health Center in Albia; therefore, they are proud to announce the addition of Ryan Howard, D.V.M. to the Garver’s Animal Health Center team. 

Dr. Howard is an alumni of Moulton-Udell High School, and a recent graduate of the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Howard and his wife, Briana, are moving back to southern Iowa, and the clinic is excited he is beginning his veterinary career with us.

Dr. Howard specializes in large animal medicine.  His rural upbringing and extensive education at Iowa State University has provided him with an array of knowledge regarding cattle, horses and many other large and small animals.

Dr. Howard joined our team the middle of May.

"It is always gratifying to add another member to our veterinary staff, especially when they are originally from the area. I enjoy watching kids go through school, job shadow, go to vet school, and ultimately find a clinic to start their career.  It is especially rewarding when we get to provide that opportunity for local veterinarians. We have a wonderful customer base that I know will welcome Dr. Howard with open arms,” owner Matthew C. Garver, D.V.M. said.

About Garver’s Animal Health Center: Garver’s Animal Health Center is a full-service veterinary clinic for both small and large animals, celebrating a milestone 10th anniversary in 2012.
