Dr. Woodington was born and raised in the Treasure Valley. He attended Meridian High School and was active in the Meridian FFA Chapter. He was the Idaho FFA State Vice President in 2003-2004 while he studied Animal Science at the University of Idaho. He graduated with his DVM Degree from Oklahoma State University in 2009. In 2009 and 2010 he completed an Equine Medicine and Surgery Internship at Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine. This led him back to Idaho to start Woodington Veterinary, where he purchased Lakeside Veterinary from the living legend, Dr. Charles Lange. It is now Woodington Veterinary in Eagle and serves Eagle and the greater Treasure Valley area. A large portion of his business is equine, however he also works on dogs, cats, and a small number of cattle. Most of his large animal clients are based on a farm call system. He also cares for a large percentage of the race horses at Les Bois Park in Boise. They are a developing practice that is attempting to get up to date with the newest technology. Their most recent development is purchasing a digital radiograph (x-ray) machine that is 100% portable and can take radiographs on the farm and have instant results on the farm.
In his spare time (which is rare) Dr. Woodington is an avid college football fan, enjoys golfing and riding horses. Dr. Woodington loves to be in the mountains either on horseback or camping.
