Dr. Alberto J. Rullan, VMD

About Dr. Alberto Rullan

Dr. Rullan graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. He was then granted a one-year equine medicine and surgery internship at Louisiana State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital and Clinic, where he obtained advanced training in diagnostic and therapeutic techniques in equine medicine and surgery.

Dr. Alberto Rullan co-founded Performance Equine Veterinary Services with his brother William in 2009. This practice focuses mainly on treating performance-related problems in horses. Dr. Rullan’s goal is to provide an accurate diagnosis to provide recovery with the best available treatment for horses that are not performing to their full potential.

2017, Dr. Rullan founded the Equine Performance Center (EPIC), a comprehensive equine rehabilitation facility in Ocala, FL. At EPIC, horses can return to athletic performance via physical rehabilitation and regenerative therapies. Using their unique methodology, EPC was able to turn some impossible cases into success stories, such as Izzy, Freckles, Illusion, and many others. Due to the difficulty and challenging nature of these cases, EPC became popular on both a local and a national scale. At this time, Dr. Rullan partnered with Dr. Phil Hammock, a board-certified equine surgeon, to build a state-of-the-art surgery suite.  This became the most comprehensive equine hospital and rehabilitation facility in Florida, which they fittingly named the Equine Performance Innovative Center—aka EPIC.

Dr. Rullan frequently travels to broaden his veterinary knowledge and consult worldwide. He continues his studies in equine rehabilitation, lameness diagnostics and treatment methods, and the use of stem cells and regenerative therapy in equine injury treatment and recovery. He also actively volunteers with the Equitarian Initiative, a non-profit international organization dedicated to providing veterinary care to horses in less fortunate communities and teaching basic veterinary care to those in these communities.
