If you are interested in this program and have questions please see the SmartPak website:

Appalachian Veterinary Services is in no way affiliated with SmartPak or it’s products, however, we are excited about this opportunity to serve you and better your horse’s health.  Annual physical and dental examinations are the best way of finding problems you didn’t even know about and fixing them before they cause problems such as weight loss or poor performance.  Annual fecal examinations allow us to tailor a deworming program for your individual horse.  Finally, vaccinations, especially for rabies and Tetanus, help to ensure your horse is protected against devastating disease and are even more important in terms of public health and protecting yourself.  Please call the us to discuss a wellness program for your horse!
