Long-time MHARF Veterinarian, Dr. Nicole Eller, Speaks at AAEP Convention and is Featured in The Horse

Dr. Nicole Eller, long-time MHARF veterinarian, addressed the 2016 AAEP National Convention in Orlando, Florida, this past December. The topic? Rescue Horses, of course!  “The Veterinarian’s Role in Equine Abuse Investigations”, to be exact. Dr. Nicole (formerly of Sieta Leguas Equine Veterinary Services and currently a Field Shelter Vet for the ASPCA’s Field Investigations Response team) began her work with Rescue horses when she first offered her services to MHARF over 10 years ago.  Since 2007 there have been very few equines (and other hooved animals) who have come through our “gates” who have not been treated by Dr. Nicole at one time or another.  She has also assisted us in many humane case investigations and has acted as our Trainer’s Challenge veterinarian since the start of the annual event in 2008. All of the work Dr. Nicole has done for MHARF over the years has been at a discounted rate, most of it at-cost, and she has also logged in countless volunteer hours.  Her AAEP Convention address has been covered in the January online issue of The Horse in an article of the same title, The Veterinarian’s Role in Equine Abuse Investigations,  by managing editor Alexandra Beckstett. Thank you, Dr. Nicole Eller, for your many years of dedicated service to animals in need!
