A Cocke County veterinarian has lost his license for alleged unprofessional or unethical conduct, according to the Tennessee Department of Heath’s Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners.

Ellis M. Hodgson III is accused of “unprofessional or unethical conduct or engaging in practices in connection with the practice of veterinary medicine that are in violation of the standards of professional conduct as defined in this section or prescribed by the rules of the board; conduct reflecting unfavorably upon the profession of veterinary medicine; addiction to the habitual use of intoxicating liquors, narcotics or other stimulants to such an extent as to incapacitate the applicant or licensee from the performance of the applicant’s or the licensee’s professional obligation and duties,” according to the board.
