About James River Equine Services

Our Vision

To provide compassionate, high quality on-the-farm equine veterinary medicine for the health and welfare of the horse and strengthening the unique bond between horse and horse owner through quality owner information and education.

Our History

Jeffrey A. Shane, DVM started the practice in 1998 in Charlottesville Virginia. He began with a cell phone and his SUV, traveling to farms around central Virginia. Dr. Shane comes to your farm to provide veterinary care to your horses.


 Each morning Dr. Shane  loads up the truck and heads out to the farms for the day’s rounds. Frequently, a pre-vet student may be riding along with him to see what it is like to be a horse doctor. Most days end back at the office to return messages, look at x-rays, run lab tests, and get ready for the next day’s calls.

Dr. Shane is a member of the American Association of Equine Practitioners, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and the Virginia Association of Equine Practitioners.

We look forward to hearing from you
