Where Is Critter Fixers Filmed? Nat Geo Filming Locations
Critter Fixers is filmed at Critter Fixer Veterinary Hospitals with locations in both Byron and Bonaire in Georgia. Critter Fixers: County Vets has five seasons on Nat Geo.
The Nat Geo Wild program has a reality show format, with each production following the daily professional lives of two veterinarians -Dr. Terrence Ferguson and Dr. Vernard Hodges.
Both vets were born and raised in Georgia, Ferguson in Talbotton, and Hodges in Fort Valley.
Becoming the stars of a TV show was never what they thought. The two didn't even go searching for the opportunity. Instead, it came looking for them.
It all started when a production company out of New York approached Hodges via Instagram. "Would you be interested in having a TV show," they said. He ignored the offer, thinking it was spam.
Sometime later, he got a second note. Once a communication line was opened between the production company representative and him, he was asked to connect through Skype for a meeting.
After this, he shared the information with his business partner, and the rest is history. The show debuted on the network on March 7, 2020.
Critter Fixers Country Vets Location
Critter Fixers Country Vets location is Critter Fixer Veterinary Hospitals in Warner Robins, Georgia. The show has attracted animal lovers across the country to the Robins Region area.
The show stars longtime friends and business partners, Dr. Hodges and Dr. Ferguson, who own and operate a bustling veterinary clinic at Critter Fixer Veterinary Hospital.
Hodges and Ferguson treat a variety of animal maladies of all shapes and sizes at their clinic.
Both docs grew up in the area and chose to return not just to serve the animals of rural Georgio but to be an example to people of color everywhere who may aspire to be veterinarians.
Critter Fixer Veterinary Hospital was established in 1999 in a 1,000 sq ft leasehold on Highway 96 in Bonaire.
Over the years, this upstairs clinic grew into becoming one of the busiest veterinary hospitals in Houston Country, thanks to the amazing clients of Middle Georgia.
It is now a 7,000 sq ft state-of-the-art facility, serving as the only veterinary clinic in the Warner Robins area offering digital radiography.
One of the clinic's greatest strengths is providing high-quality and compassionate veterinary care at fair value in a professional and friendly environment. It has a high rate of satisfied customers.
Ferguson and Hodges are always surprised at the number of clients who travel to them with their pets -from Alabama, Florida, and North and South Carolina, to name a few.
"We're so humbled by the people who come to see us. We're so happy to be able to create friendships with clients from all over the country," Dr. Vernard Hodges says.
