About

Kenneth Larson – DVM

Our products come thoroughly researched and with a longstanding history, but who is Vetline Equine, Inc.? The answer springs from the legacy of Kenneth Larson. Dr. Larson held a PhD in Veterinary Medicine as well as a Master’s Degree in Microbiology. In his 60+ year career in the veterinary industry, Dr. Larson held licensures to practice veterinary medicine in three states and taught veterinary students at Colorado State University’s premier Veterinary Teaching Hospital for years educating future veterinarians in Microbiology, Immunology, and Pathology. After teaching at CSU, Dr. Larson established E-LARS Bioresearch, a research company dedicated to finding new, practical solutions to equine health questions. He partnered with Chelatron to develop the cutting edge chelation process that now makes Equilytes so cutting edge. Throughout his ownership of E-LARS and beyond, Dr. Larson was dedicated to improving the lives of the equine, especially the equine athlete. Alongside his partnership with Chelatron, Dr. Larson partnered with ConVital, an already widespread and trusted name in vitamins in Europe and Ireland, to further research and redevelop the recipe into what is now known as EqVital. During their formulation, our products were put through their paces in a series of research studies conducted by Dr. Larson and other professionals, including trainers, track vets, nutritionists, and riders, on endurance horses as well as thoroughbred race horses. These studies concluded over and over the competitive value of his nontraditional, nutritional approach to mediating and even eliminating various issues from which equine athletes often suffer. His beloved products were made available through his clinic and pharmacy located in Fort Collins, Colorado, and later, also, at its sister retail space in Texas under the guidance and ownership of his son. Vetline products can now be seen in every major veterinary distributor’s inventory in the United States, as well as abroad in Canada, Europe, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. Since his passing in 2016, the company has remained family-owned and dedicated to his continued vision. Hence, the reappearance of three original, trusted recipes: Race Today, Equilytes, and EqVital, complete with new labeling, and equipped with the original proprietary composition that horse people trust and keeps horses coming back for more. Who are we? We are nutrition. Tradition. And family. Join our family now and experience a piece of the Larson legacy by ordering some of our professional product line today!
