In-house Equine Rehabilitation and Consultation Services

The horse is predisposed to a variety of health conditions and soundness concerns, which is amplified if they are competing, under stress or have metabolic concerns.  In many cases, these unique athletes are left retired after exhausting traditional therapies.  Is it possible to bring these athletes back?  Improving soundness, performance and overall quality of life?

At Nouvelle Research, Inc., our focus started with the horse and will always be the horse!  Our company was founded on principles set by Tom Schell, D.V.M., to not give up and continually seek new options targeting the restoration of health through nutrition and targeted herbal supplementation.  In many cases, it is the imbalance between various cellular pathways that is contributing to poor health, joint pain and even soft tissue injuries.  Dr. Schell has always believed that through a more targeted approach, taking into consideration the entire patient, the results can be amplified and improved.

Nouvelle Research, Inc. now offers in-house or out-patient consultation and rehabilitation services, putting Dr. Schell’s 20 years of equine practice experience and research to work for your horse! 

No two horses are the same, despite similar circumstances.  We approach each horse as an individual, taking all aspects into consideration that may be contributing to the problem.
