Dr. David Ramey is a 1983 graduate of the Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine. Following graduation, Dr. Ramey completed an internship in Equine Medicine and Surgery at Iowa State University. He entered private equine practice in Southern California in 1984, and set up his own ambulatory clinical practice, Ramey Equine, in 1987. Dr. Ramey’s practice specializes in the care and treatment of sport and pleasure horses. He cares for a diverse group of horses, from top level hunters and jumpers, to pleasure horses and miniature horses.
In addition to being a full-time practitioner, Dr. Ramey is also an internationally recognized researcher, author, lecturer, and blogger. He has written 13 books, 5 book chapters, and has had over 70 papers published in professional journals. He has lectured on various topics in universities, expos, and conventions around the United States, as well as Canada, Australia, and the UK. He has presented at the annual American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) convention 10 times.
Dr. Ramey is a vocal advocate for the application of science to medicine, and—as such—for the welfare of the horse. Thus, he has been a frequent critic of practices that lack good science, such as the diverse therapies collectively known as “alternative” medicine, needless nutritional supplementation, or conventional therapies that lack scientific support.
