  • Liz Z
    Equine & Small Animal Veterinary Assistant

    Liz spent the majority of her professional career doing food safety and regulation in the meat industry.  It was not until she found her passion for horses, just a few years ago, that she shifted into the veterinary medicine field and has been with the Fredonia Vet Clinic since 2021.  It did not take long for her to realize that helping horses and their owners is what she wanted to spend every day doing.  Since this was very new to her, she focused a lot of her time and energy becoming educated on the species! Liz has since become certified in Equine Nutrition and Advanced Equine Training.  She is also a Certified Equine Behavior Specialist.   

    In her spare time - you guessed it - she enjoys her horses!  Liz also enjoys backpacking, camping and spending time with her family.   Two horses, two dogs and two cats are definitely enough to keep her busy!
