We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate SmartPak Equine Veterinary Advisory Council member Dr. Jay Merriam, who has been inducted into the International Equine Veterinarian Hall of Fame. Four horseshoers were inducted into the International Horseshoeing Hall of Fame and two equine veterinarians—Dr. Merriam and Dr. Kent Carter–were inducted into the International Equine Veterinarian Hall of Fame.
Known as an “innovator and messenger of equine well-being,” Dr. Merriam owns Massachusetts Equine Clinic in Uxbridge, Mass., a state-of-the-art referral clinic specializing in sports medicine and equine podiatry. In addition to his medical practice, Dr. Merriam served as the first chairman of the American Association of Equine Practitioners Equine Welfare Committee, and co-founded an international non-profit organization Project Samana to assist equines in need.
Congratulations Dr. Merriam, from everyone here at SmartPak!
