Brittany Factor, DVM

Dr. Factor is a horse vet, owner of Factor Veterinary Services LLC, and founder of Equine Sport Solutions (ESS). For the last 10 years, Dr. Factor has focused her practice on equine sports medicine and physiotherapy, utilizing her advanced skill sets in lameness, advanced imaging, and treatment/rehabilitation of the equine athlete.

Dr. Brittany grew up in the St. Louis, Missouri area and was extensively involved with the hunter/jumper show circuit starting with the pony hunters and training up to the grand prix jumper level. She has expanded her riding career and has started to show Reined Cow Horses.

Dr. Factor's undergraduate studies were performed at Stephens College, which included a triple major in biology, chemistry, and equine science/business management.  After obtaining her doctorate of veterinary medicine from the University of Missouri, she completed an internship rotating as a house officer through medicine, surgery, and ambulatory practices while participating in the instruction of veterinary students.  She completed a second post-doctorate at one of the most prestigious practices in the country, Virginia Equine Imaging. This practice was chosen as the head veterinary coordinator of the World Equestrian Games during her employment.  There she acquired extensive skills in lameness and advanced imaging modalities.  Both opportunities allowed her to work extensively and perform research utilizing the Equinosis Lameness Locator, an objective digital gait analysis system.

Dr. Brittany has served as a team and on-site horse vet at many equestrian events that include: Young Rider Championships, Rolex Kentucky 3 Day Event, Fairhill Horse Trials, Virginia Horse Trials, and the Surefire Horse Trials. She also attends multiple show circuits across the country including premier NRCHA events, Colorado and Arizona cow horse events, the Florida HITS circuit, and multiple regional cow horse events. Dr. Brittany will continue to travel to these events, or other events at your request. 

She has been featured on HorseTales TV, providing horse vet tips for the show. You may view the segment here. Dr. Factor on HorseTales TV
