What Happened To Dr Blue On Critter Fixers

The stars of National Geographic's "Critter Fixers: Country Vets" are giving back in their own way. Drs. Vernard Hodges and Terrence Ferguson have been helping their community long before their show hit the airwaves. Now, they're opening veterinary hospitals in PetSmart locations nationwide. The doctors say it's a way to pay their mentor, the late Dr. Earnest Corker, a compliment they say would make him proud.

At their Critter Fixer Veterinary Hospital in rural Georgia, which is about 100 miles south of Atlanta, the doctors deal with the kinds of cases you might not see at a big city animal hospital. From a police dog that got cactus thorns in its eye to a potbelly pig with life-threatening injuries from an attack with a wild animal - there's no case too strange for the vets at their clinic.

But as rewarding as it is, there are times when they must euthanize animals that are beloved to their patients. It's a difficult job, especially since many of these pets they first met as puppies and watched grow up. "There's nothing that hurts our hearts like euthanasia," says Dr. Hodges.

While Hodges and Ferguson are grateful for their newfound fame on the reality TV show, it's also brought them a lot of positive feedback from viewers around the world. They say that on a daily basis, people reach out to them from as far away as Sweden and Botswana. On January 1, the two will be joining their fans at the Rose Parade in Pasadena, California on Hill's Pet Nutrition's Feed the Love float.
