CRITTER FIXERS: COUNTRY VETS

 

Dr. Terrence Ferguson

CRITTER FIXERS: COUNTRY VETS

Dr. Terrence Ferguson is the co-owner of Critter Fixer Veterinary Hospital. Growing up in rural Talbotton, Georgia, Dr. Ferguson discovered his caring nature for animals at a young age, bringing strays in off the streets and actually nursing a dog back to health after it had been hit by a car.

With his family’s encouragement, he embarked on a career in veterinary medicine long before college, spending his summers volunteering at local veterinary clinics. Dr. Ferguson received his undergraduate degree from Fort Valley State University and later earned his DVM from Tuskegee College of Veterinary Medicine.

After graduating, he formed a partnership with his best friend since college, Dr. Vernard Hodges, and nearly 20 years later, Critter Fixer Veterinary Hospital is still going strong. Dr. Ferguson is married with two kids and three dogs, and he trains and mentors athletes in the community. His daughter, Nicole, is studying Animal Science at Fort Valley State University, and his son, Terrence Junior, is a freshman at the University of Alabama where he plays football and study Sports Medicine.

 

Dr. Vernard Hodges

CRITTER FIXERS: COUNTRY VETS

Dr. Vernard Hodges is the co-owner of Critter Fixer Veterinary Hospital. Raised in Peach County, Georgia, Dr. Hodges grew up around lots of animals and developed a passion early on for understanding and helping them.

In the hopes of becoming the next Jacques Cousteau, Dr. Hodges pursued his undergraduate degree in fisheries biology from Fort Valley State University. But soon after graduating, Dr. Hodges realized his passion for animals expanded well beyond aquatic species, so he enrolled at the Tuskegee College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 1997 with his DVM.

From there, he partnered with his best friend and vet school classmate, Dr. Terrence “T” Ferguson, to open Critter Fixer Veterinary Hospital. Almost 20 years later, the hospital has expanded to two locations and treats over 20,000 animals every year.

Dr. Hodges has a 17-year-old son, V.J., and several animals, including four dogs, Alexis, Bane, Ghost and Koi; and a bearded dragon named Drake. He is very active in his community and mentors scores of area children through his nonprofit organization.
