Dr. Rowley is a 1990 graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine and has been in private practice for the past 20 years. Dr. Rowley’s post-graduate training began with an equine internship in Simpsonville, KY under Dr. Scott Bennett of Equine Services. Dr. Rowley’s first year in practice provided him with a solid foundation for serving the horse and its owner. Dr. Rowley then spent the next two years in Western Kansas with Dr. Shelby Jones in Scott City, KS. A mixed animal practice with a major portion of the practice consisting of beef cattle/feedlot medicine provided Dr. Rowley an opportunity to receive further training working with the feedlots and westernKansas cow/calf producers. In 1993 Dr. Rowley finally returned to Texas and purchased a mixed practice in New Braunfels, TX where he has been practicing for the last 15 years until selling the real estate to developers in 1997.

               Dr. Rowley and his wife, Wendy purchased property in Mills county to retire and raise their horses. However due to the increasing demand for veterinary services by his neighbors and friends, Dr. Rowley and his wife have opened Trigger Mountain Veterinary Clinic on FM 1029 (aka Trigger Mountain Highway). Trigger Mountain Veterinary Clinic is a mixed animal practice and will be seeing patients by appointment as well as providing after-hours (emergency) veterinary services on a limited basis.

                Wendy Rowley has a B.S. in Biomedical Science and is a registered veterinary technician, a charter member of the American Association of Equine Veterinary Technicians and a Certified Pharmacy Technician. Wendy began her career working on horse ranches in Texas. When Dr. Rowley returned to attend veterinary school, Wendy worked for equine veterinarian, Dr. H.A.”Bud” Smith of the Brenham Veterinary Hospital then as Dr. Bennett’s veterinary technician in Simpsonville, KY, lab technician for the local medical practice in Scott City, KS and then managed the veterinary practice in New Braunfels. Currently Wendy assists Dr. Rowley when needed and works part-time in the compounding section of McMahan’s Pharmacy in Goldthwaite. If you cannot find her at either one of those two places, she is probably horseback competing in the cutting pen showing her horses in  AQHA, ACHA and NCHA events as an amateur and non-professional.

               Dr. Rowley and his wife also raise registered white Dorper sheep and a few goats since moving to Mills County.
