Billy Hodge, DVM, MRCVS, Certified in Equine Locomotor Pathology (ISELP)

Dr. William Hodge graduated from Liverpool Veterinary School in England in May 2007. Upon graduation, he quickly turned his focus to the equine athlete. In the UK, he worked on pleasure horses and sport horses of all backgrounds under the supervision of several diplomats and experienced clinicians before joining a referral equine clinic. There he worked with eventers, show jumpers and pleasure horses evaluating lamenesses using digital imaging (bone scan, ultrasound, radiography and MRI) with a focus on therapy and regeneration of injuries. When he returned to North America, he spent several years working predominantly with race horses and sport horses in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Dr. Hodge is the author of a novel technique of alcohol-fusion in the lower hock joint as a therapy for chronic lameness in horses. His interest in poor performance and equine medicine has also been a large focus of his career carrying out emergency medicine/care, colic management, anaesthesia, gastroscopy, abdominal and thoracic ultrasound and routine dentistry. He also spent several years at a large stud farm in the UK providing reproductive services.

However, his focus has remained largely on lameness, diagnostics and return of the equine athlete to previous performance. He continues to search for novel techniques and rehabilitation regimes for horses with soft tissue injuries of the distal and proximal limb. Billy completed his ISELP certification in 2017 and is now the second veterinarian in Canada with ISELP certification.
