COLLEGE STATION, TX – The College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University is known for being a leader in veterinary medicine and research, as well as being a clinic that takes extraordinary care of our small animal patients. Dr. Jacqueline Davidson, small animal orthopedic and soft tissue surgeon, has recently been added to our staff to provide the particular type of care that some of these small animal patients need.
“I have been in a Clinical Track position in the Department of Veterinary Small Animal Clinical Sciences at the college since September 1, 2009” said Davidson. “As a clinical-track full-professor, my appointment is designated to be approximately 70 percent instruction, 20 percent service, and 10 percent scholarly activity. The instructional effort is a combination of clinical, didactic and laboratory instruction of professional students, interns and residents. The service effort includes all non-student teaching and non-scholarly related activities required to enable and enhance the activities of the department, hospital, school and university. The scholarly activity effort includes publishing book chapters, case reports, journal articles, and presenting continuing education programs that demonstrate my clinical expertise and experience with large numbers of cases.”
Dr. Davidson has been at Louisiana State University for the past fifteen years before coming to Texas A&M. She has been especially focused on rehabilitation in small animals as a sub interest for the past few years. As well as her work in surgery, Dr. Davidson does work with small animals in pain management and postoperative care, and is also trained in acupuncture and spinal manipulation for both small and large animals.
“The veterinary medical college at Texas A&M is such a collegial place” said Davidson, “it is current and progressing. They have a clear vision for where they want to go in the future and are active in taking strides toward that goal. The atmosphere in the whole Bryan and College Station area is also friendly; it makes mundane things such as going to the grocery store a pleasant task.”
