Dr. Abigail Bowers

Dr. Abigail Bowers is a 2007 graduate of Iowa State University's College of Veterinary Medicine.  After graduation, Dr. Bowers moved back to her hometown and entered practice with her father. Risius & Associates Veterinary Service is a 4-doctor, mixed animal, private practice in Eldridge, Iowa.  After 2 years in practice, Abby started on the path to practice ownership. She and another veterinarian each purchased 20% ownership of the practice from her father in December 2010. Abby has really enjoyed both the challenges and rewards of practice ownership. After having a child in June 2011, Abby now works 30 hours per week and spends her time doing small animal medicine and much of the team management and leadership within the practice.
