As a proud member of the African-American Film Critics Association many opportunities come to have conversations with interesting people.

I shamelessly say that I LOVE THE VETS ON CRITTER FIXERS: COUNTRY VETS. My niece went to Fort Valley State with the doctors and she turned me on to them. Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Hodges have been vets for over 20 years. Both doctors grew up in Georgia, graduated from HBCU Fort Valley State University, received their veterinary degree from Tuskegee University, and decided to go back to rural Georgia and start their practice.

I love the show because the doctors really care for their patients. They refer to their patients as baby as if they are taking the care with pets as they would a child. They are funny, especially Dr. Hodges, while Dr. Ferguson has a quiet humor about him.

During the AAFCA Roundtable conversation, we really got to know them and learn so much about black veterinarians and the need for more.

Until next time, keep your EYE to the sky!
