About the Author:

Dr. Chris O'Malley     

Dr. Christian O'Malley graduated from NC State College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996.  Since graduation, Dr. O'Malley has devoted his practice exclusively to equines.  A large part of Dr. O'Malley's practice is ambulatory, so he is well rehearsed in all aspects of caring for the ailing equine in the field setting.

Dr. O'Malley and his wife Dr. Amy O'Malley are the owners of Warrenton Animal Clinic, a mixed animal practice they started in 1999.  Dealing with equine emergencies is a common occurrence for Dr. Chris since he is the only equine veterinarian available in the surrounding horse country. 

In 2005, Dr. O'Malley began to compile his experience and knowledge of equine emergencies into his book entitled "Horse 911: Dr. O'Malley's Veterinary Emergency Handbook".  This handbook is packed with concise, easy to understand information pertaining to equine emergencies.  The sole purpose of the book is to provide the horse owner an opportunity to help themselves and their horse in a time of crisis.  Dr. O'Malley feels that horse owners in particular are more attuned to the health and care of their horses as compared to other pet owners.  For this reason, he wants all horse owners to be knowledgeable in the well-being of their horse.

On a personal note, Dr. O'Malley is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys hunting, fishing and camping.  When he's not working he stays busy with his wife raising their three children.
