KEVIN BARBOSA DVM
I did not always plan to become a vet that took care of horses. Honestly, they terrified me and during vet school I really did not enjoy learning about them. Somewhere in my final year of vet school I realized that although I don’t own or ride horses, caring for them can be rewarding. So I decided to become a mixed animal vet that also worked on horses (mainly pleasure horses). I think the most rewarding part of equine medicine is surgery, working up medicine cases, and trying to determine the cause of lameness in horses. Equine medicine can be challenging and thankfully my colleagues at Paris Veterinary Clinic are always willing to lend a hand in order to provide the best care for our patients and clinic. I look forward to discussing some equine topics with you and answer any questions about veterinary medicine you may have.
