Biography

Michael S. Davis, DVM, Ph.D., DACVIM, DACVSMR is a veterinary physiologist and board-certified specialist in veterinary internal medicine and veterinary sports medicine at Oklahoma State University where he conducts research on animal exercise physiology and performance. His studies in horses have demonstrated the induction of asthma-like airway disease by strenuous exercise performed in cold environments. Dr. Davis holds the John C. and Debbie Oxley Endowed Chair in Equine Sports Medicine

Canine studies have included the development and validation of preventative methods for exercise-induced gastric disease as well as helping to identify novel metabolic pathways used by elite canine athletes to support fatigue-resistant endurance exercise. These studies have provided the United States Armed Forces with valuable information on the physiological capabilities of working dogs, as well as the methods for producing maximal performance and sustainability of these dogs.

As a professional educator for 20 years and with numerous national and international speaking events, Dr. Davis has extensive training and experience in educating a variety of different audiences. He holds the Oxley Chair in Equine Sports Medicine.
