Dr. Duane Chappell

Owingsville, KY | 

Dr. Duane Chappell has spent his career bettering the health of horses through his work in the field, 
classroom and research projects.
After receiving his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Purdue University, Chappell spent his career practicing in the Midwest at mixed animal clinics. Throughout his time in the field, Chappell has owned and managed solo and group practices, as well as being the resident veterinarian at Richland Ranch Quarter Horse breeding farm. He also served as research monitor, participant and leader in trials involving R. equi, equine influenza, exercise cytokines and plasma antibodies while in practice and academia.

After years in the field, Chappell joined Morehead State University in Kentucky as an assistant professor, where he continued his equine research contributions, as well as teaching and advising pre-veterinary students and instructing veterinary technology students.
He joined the Merck Animal Health equine veterinary professional services team in 2014, and currently serves as Associate Director, Equine Pharmacovigilance and Professional Services.

Giving back to the profession is currently achieved through active participation with Christian Veterinary Mission as a board member, short term mission trip leader, occasional speaker at CVM events and faithful supporter to CVM outreaches. In addition to CVM participation, he currently serves as chairman for the American Association of Equine Practitioners Professional Conduct and Ethics committee.
Outside of work, Chappell enjoys family time, hiking, landscaping, wood working projects and sporting events. He is married to Cindy and the couple have three children and blessed with several grandchildren.
