Dr. Davis is a veterinary physiologist and board-certified specialist in veterinary internal medicine and veterinary sports medicine. His studies in horses have demonstrated the induction of asthma-like airway disease by strenuous exercise performed in cold environments.

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.
