Nathan Slovis, DVM, DACVIM, CHT

Internal Medicine

Dr. Slovis is originally from Annapolis, Maryland. As a young child, he was involved in the United States Pony Club. He rode for Radford University’s equestrian team, has ridden dressage, three-day eventing and galloped racehorses. His interest in veterinary medicine exposed his love for helping animals that cannot speak. He enjoys figuring out an animal’s medical issue from the clues they give during physical exams and diagnostic blood work. Dr. Slovis’ professional interests include infectious disease and neonatology. However, his favorite memory of being a vet involves equine technical rescue. He was trained at University of California Davis for disaster preparedness. His training there has helped him be prepared for disasters he has seen during trailer accidents. He has been able to save many horses that would have otherwise been euthanized due to injuries sustained during the accident while trying to extricate them from the demolished trailer. He has published over sixty manuscripts regarding equine medicine in both peer reviewed national and international journals. Outside of work, Dr. Slovis enjoys spending time with his wife, watching his kids play lacrosse and hockey, and trap shooting. He loves the fall weather and hopes to go on an African Horseback Safari with his family one day!
