Black Veterinarians Operate A Georgia Animal Clinic In 'Critter Fixers: Country Vets'

In the new Nat Geo Wild series Critter Fixers: Country Vets, lifelong friends and veterinarians Dr. Terrence Ferguson and Dr. Vernard L. Hodges run an animal clinic in their Georgia community, where they treat a variety of animals such as cats, dogs, turtles, cows and horses.

Here's the official description: Together with their loving staff, these physicians bring real heart, soul and a lot of humor to their treatment and care of more than 20,000 patients a year across their two locations. Between emergency visits to the office and farm calls throughout rural Georgia, this special team is constantly bombarded with unique cases. From a police dog with cactus thorns around her eye to a potbellied pig with life-threatening lacerations, for the Critter Fixer team, there is no such thing as “normal.”

The duo of vets originally met during their time as undergrads at HBCU Fort Valley State University. They eventually went to the same veterinary school and partnered up to open an animal clinic called Critter Fixer in 1999.

Critter Fixers: Country Vets airs every Saturday at 10 p.m. on Net Geo Wild.
