About Our Staff!

Dr. Jeff Shane

Dr. Shane grew up in Colorado working on a horse and cattle ranch. His love for horses and the outdoors was combined with his wonder of nature and how things worked, when, at 12 years old, he decided that he wanted to be a veterinarian. After gaining his Degree in Biology at Wheaton College in Illinois, he attended Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He graduated in 1993 and practiced in a mixed animal practice for one year in North Carolina. He and his wife, Susan, came to Charlottesville, Va in 1994. Dr. Shane started James River Equine Services in 1998. He enjoys the outdoors and brewing beer in his free time.
