A Passion for Horses
Having grown up working on a horse and cattle ranch in Colorado, Dr. Jeffrey Shane recognized at age 12 that his calling was to be a veterinarian. In practice since his graduation from Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1993, Dr. Shane has specialized in equine care. His passion for veterinary medicine is so strong that he participates in Christian Veterinary Missions to ensure good veterinary standards and practices throughout the world.
On-farm visits are like house calls for humans. Routine physical exams, diagnostic testing, and most emergency situations can be handled on the farm. If complications arise, referrals are made to Blue Ridge Equine Clinic, Mountain View Equine Hospital, or the College of Veterinary Medicine in Blacksburg, Virginia.
