Georgia 'Critter Fixer' Veterinarian Gets Own National Geographic TV Show

Jun 11, 2019

Later this year, two Georgia veterinarians will star in a reality TV show on National Geographic.

The Critter Fixers will follow the lives of doctors Vernard Hodges and Terrence Ferguson. Hodges and Ferguson both run and operate Critter Fixer Veterinary Hospitals in Byron and Bonaire. 


The road to success wasn't exactly a dog walk in the park for Hodges, though. In 2017, he wrote Bet on Yourself: From Zero to Millions. The book details his rise from growing up poor in Fort Valley to becoming a veterinarian and millionaire real estate investor. 

Hodges spoke with On Second Thought host Virginia Prescott about the upcoming show and working to diversify the veterinary industry. He said less than two percent of veterinarians are African American. 

Hodges and Ferguson have taped six episodes for Critter Fixers, which will air sometime this fall.
