Dr. Elizabeth Holland graduated from Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2008 where she was named the top graduate in small animal medicine. After graduation, she joined the team at Adel Veterinary Clinic under the leadership of Dr. Pat Rohret.
Dr. Holland enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine including nutrition, preventative medicine and surgery. She has a special fondness for cats and enjoys helping them learn to enjoy (or at least not despise!) their annual visits to the veterinary clinic. She is certified in veterinary acupuncture through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS) and is excited to offer this and other holistic healing services at the clinic.
In 2015, Dr. Holland became the clinic owner and has been working diligently to continue the tradition of first class medicine and small town charm by becoming a Fear Free and Cat-Friendly Practice as well as working to update the boarding facility and clinic overall to meet these priorities. In 2020, Dr. Holland was voted "favorite veterinarian" in Dallas County and she was honored to be named Veterinarian of the Year for Iowa in 2021.
Outside of work, Dr. Holland enjoys gardening, hiking, reading, Cubs baseball, and spending time with family. Dr. Holland and her husband live in Adel with their cats Tush, Kia, and Storm; dog Yastrzemski (Yaz); geckos Gertrude and Indy; and sons, Keaton, Sullivan, and Lewis.
Dr. Holland is involved in the Adel Chamber, a member of the trail committee promoting the Racoon River Valley Trail in Adel, and a member of the Executive Board for the Iowa Veterinary Medical Association.
