About Us

In 1975, horse-enthusiast Vinny D’Amelio wanted to create a product that did one thing: helped horses run faster. Through research, planning, execution, implementation and careful craftsmanship Vapco was born.

D’Amelio knew he was onto something… Fueled by passion, vigor and a whole lotta’ determination, D’Amelio went from barn-to-barn selling his product. After years of growth and experience, Vapco has grown from producing superior poultice to providing expanded product lines of external applications, feed supplements and healthcare solutions that enhance equine health and nutrition.


B.C. Forbes once said, “If you don’t drive your business, you will be driven out of business.

That nearly happened to Vapco in 2011. After 36 years of business, we went from the highest peak to the lowest valley, nearly closing our doors. It wasn’t a lack of resources. It wasn’t a lack of work. It was a lack of resilience. We, as a company, encountered a difficult time and failed to respond with resilience. Ironically, our processes and commitment to product integrity was unscathed. Our customers remained loyal and supportive as we’ve worked to smooth out the wrinkles.


Hindsight is 20-20 and we’re happy to have rebounded from that experience. We’re excited to expand our knowledge of product excellence and capabilities; providing you with powerful new ideas in equine healthcare and performance nutrition. Veterinarians, horse owners, trainers, breeders and farriers can trust our commitment to quality and product integrity.

Through our new and improved e-commerce portal, purchasing the products you want is easier and more convenient – saving time and hassle. Additionally, by condensing our product lines, we’ve decided to focus our efforts on making our top products better; by providing an ongoing commitment to quality. Consider it our way of saying, “thanks” for your continued support and loyalty over the years. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to service your needs and we continue to stand behind our products with a 100% guarantee.

Thank you for your valued patronage.
