Started in 2022 by Dr. Melody Schwab, North Country Equine is an exclusively equine mobile veterinary practice serving Beaver, Lawrence, Butler and surrounding counties in western Pennsylvania.  Our mission is to provide exceptional care, on the farm, across all breeds and disciplines.   We strive to cultivate lasting relationships with our equine clients, and are dedicated to an unwavering standard of excellence, in caring for horses and in our relationships with our clients and the community. 

Our practice culture is built on the following cornerstones
Every client, every horse, every goal, and every budget are unique.  NCE will approach each situation as such, showing consideration and respect for every client and their unique set of needs. 
We believe that clear, effective communication is essential for a successful veterinarian/client/patient relationship.  NCE is committed to earning our clients’ loyalty, keeping our word and conveying sound medical and ethical practices in all of our encounters.
NCE strives to bring the most current scientific and clinical knowledge to our clients.  Our goal is continual personal and professional growth, to remain experts in our field, always striving to offer the highest standard of excellence.
NCE is intensely loyal to our community, our clients and our network of fellow equestrians. With roots that run deep in western PA, NCE is committed to investing our time and resources back into the community we call home.
