Dr. Dana Reeder, of Blacksburg, Va., a member of the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine's Class of 1999, has joined the college's Virginia Tech campus as a clinical assistant professor of equine field service.

She comes to the college from Ranson, W.V., where she worked as an associate veterinarian at Valley Equine Associates PLLC. While there, Reeder focused heavily on racetrack work, lameness, and reproduction. According to Dr. David Hodgson, head of the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences, when it comes to horses, Reeder has “just about done it all.”

“I am very pleased to welcome Dr. Reeder to our department,” said Hodgson. “Her experience with equine athletes and her clinical interest in hoof care and therapeutic shoeing will be of great benefit to our college as we move forward with our equine clinical services and our soon to be launched podiatry center.”

Reeder received her bachelor’s degree in agriculture engineering in 1994 from Virginia Tech. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Association of Equine Practitioners.
