"At Torihope Farm we strive for the best quality care for our horses. Part of that care includes regular visits from Dr. Hodges for Chiropractic and Acupuncture care. The overall appearance, attitude and performance are greatly enhanced with regular treatments. All our horses seem to love the treatments that Dr. Hodges provides and we can certainly see improvements in all aspects of their lives."
Vicki Autry, Torihope Farm.
"Dr. Hodges has been working on my Dutch Warmblood for many years, performing both Acupuncture and Chiropractic treatments. He is extremely capable and charms both humans and horses alike. There is always a noticeable difference in the ease with which my horse moves and jumps after these treatments."
"Dr. Hodges is a joy to work with. He takes the time to explain what he is doing and is incredibly patient with our horses (and us!). We have seen tremendous improvement in the horses he has worked on and appreciate him helping our horses stay happy and healthy!"
"I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Hodges for the past 5 years. He has cared for both my equine and canine companions. His kindness, knowledge and real life results on my animals has impressed me greatly. My animals are more comfortable after a session with him. I look forward to a long relationship with him. He is a great Vet and I am the lucky one to have found him after trying others before him with marginal results. Thank you for caring Dr. Hodges! "

"First home visit with Dr. Hodges. Our dog Gia had an Acupuncture treatment. I would recommend Dr. Hodges based on our phone conversation and our appointment. He is soft spoken and great with animals. He was extra patient as I rambled on about what we have done in regard to feeding and medications. He is very thorough and spent over an hour taking notes and making suggestions. He is very responsive and returns phone messages quickly. I am happy to have found someone in the area that can give care to my pet."
