Dr. V. Todd Cooley
Dr. V. Todd Cooley graduated from Mississippi State University in 1987. During veterinary school he developed an interest in equine medicine and pursued that interest in central Illinois and Ocala, FL for the first 5 years of his career. Dr. Cooley added small animal medicine to his resume during his years in Tallahassee before settling in the quaint city of Thomasville in 2000. South Georgia was the perfect fit for he and his family and reminded him much of his early years spent in southern Mississippi. Seeing Thomasville Animal Hospital grow and serve the community has been very fulfilling and the realization of a lifelong goal.
Dr. Cooley spends the majority of his professional time seeing horses at the hospital and to a lesser extent making farm calls. He gets referrals and haul-in cases from a large area of north Florida, south Georgia, and south east Alabama.
He and Lori, his wife of 30 years, have four children: Vince, Jonathan, AnnaLee and Samuel, the only one still at home except for the four dogs and three cats. He enjoys outdoor activities such as gardening, and hunting any type of wildfowl.
According to Dr. Cooley:
“I am very blessed to love what I do for a living, and I spend a lot of time doing it.”
