Best Advice Ever

Josh Zacharias (’03)
A Diplomate in two large animal areas with a DVM not only from Iowa State, but a completed residency at Purdue University, Josh Zacharias is uniquely trained to be an equine veterinarian. But it is another skill Zacharias honed at Iowa State that sets him apart. In addition to his veterinary credentials, he is a farrier with 15 years of experience in therapeutic shoeing applications. He decided to attend the Kentucky Horse Shoeing School after being advised to do so. “That was the best advice I ever got,” Zacharias said. “I took up shoeing because I wanted to be a better vet.”
