About Us

Staff:
Erich Hodges, D.V.M.
     Dr. Hodges is a recent graduate of Iowa State University, the College of Veterinary Medicine.  Erich treats your large animals (cows, horses, sheep, goats, etc.) and your small animals (cats, dogs, rabbits, etc.).  Dr. Hodges has two Brown Swiss dairy cows, three American Quarter Horses, one American Paint Horse, and a rescue Australian cattle dog, Elsie.  In his spare time, Dr. Hodges enjoys horseback riding, especially trail riding, international travel, and camping.  He also volunteers at his local church, Stonebridge, in Boone.

     Kayla came to us in 2018 after working in the veterinary field for six years in Des Moines.  She graduated from Animal Behavior College in 2013.  Kayla is highly skilled in assisting Dr. Hodges with all of your animals, large and small.  In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her blue heelers Jolene, Azle, and Willow, going to live music concerts, and being with her family.

     Kelly joined our practice in 2019 after travelling the country with her husband while he was active duty military.  They most recently served in Florida and Alaska.  Kelly enjoys spending time with her husband and two very friendly pups, Malcolm and Molly.  She enjoys travelling, skiing, and camping, and is our photographer and office guru.
