Dr. Davidson has been working at Spartanburg Animal Clinic since 1975. A native South Carolinian, he grew up in Ware Shoals and then moved to Duncan at the age of 13. Dr. Davidson received a BS degree in Animal Science from Purdue University and attended the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine, where he earned a DVM degree.
Prior to becoming a veterinarian, Dr. Davidson was a member of the kennel staff at Spartanburg Animal Clinic. He also worked for Dr. Gene Wright at Greer Animal Hospital. His medical interests include dermatology and animal reproduction.
Dr. Davidson is a member of the South Carolina Association of Veterinarians (SCAV), American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), and the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP). From 1986 to 1987, he served as president of SCAV. He has also been honored by the South Carolina Cattlemen's Association as State Educator of the Year in 1999.
He finds it rewarding to educate owners in good animal husbandry and watch them follow his recommendations for a healthier pet. According to Dr. Davidson, seeing a 75 pound Bassett Hound lose 35 pounds to have a healthier, happier life is one of the highlights of being a veterinarian.
At home, Dr. Davidson has a Flame Point Siamese cat named Brother Boy; two domestic long hair Calicos, PG and Scardy Cat; as well as many horses — most noted is SHF Miss Scarlet, a National Champion Arabian, bred and shown by Dr. Davidson. He is a life member of the Spartanburg Livestock Association, as well as a life member of the Arabian Horse Association, Purdue University Alumni Association, and FFA Alumni Association. In his spare time, he enjoys working in the garden, showing and breeding Arabian horses, and growing orchids.
