Too soon to lose.

I love the Critter Fixers Country Vet show. I’m addictive to watching how Dr. Hodge and Dr. Ferguson reacts to every situation. They do such a great job with their patients and the how the care about the patients owner’s . Love that show!!!!

Please bring back the Critter Fixers in 2023!

I love this show. This is one of the best television shows on TV. The Critter Fixers are educational, hilarious and serious TV. I'm 63 years of age with no pets, yet this show continues to fascinate me with learning about animal physiology and behavior. The Critter Fixers truly love animals and amazingly the animals respond in kind when Dr. Hodges and Dr. Ferguson fix whatever conditions they have! The show teaches you kindness to the least of these. We need more television programing like this!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This fun series features two veterinarians with lots of skill and Southern country charm treating all kinds of animals. As they diagnose, perform surgeries, and try to keep struggling animals alive, they offer a little bit of information about the medical issues they encounter and the choices they make. But the show's true appeal also comes from watching the very likable Drs. Ferguson and Hodges interact with their clients, their owners, and each other.

Some of the procedures are bloody, and as the doctors attempt to help suffering or critically ill animals, there are some tense and emotional moments. But the empathy demonstrated by these veterinarians makes it a little easier to handle. If you're an animal lover, there's a good chance that you'll find Critter Fixers: Country Vets entertaining.
