Dr. Janie Hodges is a native of Amarillo, Texas. She attended Texas A&M University, graduating from the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1990. For the first 6 years of her career, Dr. Janie worked in a multi-doctor practice in Arlington, TX soaking up lots of wisdom from her three mentors. It became time to grow up and leave the nest, so Dr. Hodges started Valley View Pet Health Center in Farmers Branch, TX in 1997. She practiced as a solo veterinarian for 11 years. In 2008, she merged with another clinic in the area and then sold her interest in the practice a couple of years after that moved to New Zealand for several months.
When she returned to the United States in 2011, Dr. Janie wanted to do something different than a "bricks and mortar" practice. She started Luxury Veterinary Care because she felt that a mobile practice delivering high quality veterinary services was something needed in the Dallas area. In addition to house calls, Dr. Hodges works 2 days a week at the Farmers Branch Animal Adoption Center.
Dr. Janie resides in Farmers Branch, Texas with her husband, Ches Graham, and her fur babies: a female Schnauzer who plots world domination daily and a male West Highland White Terrier who just wants a lap and some petting....or a squirrel. She is also a volunteer puppy raiser for Lone Star Guide Dog Raisers.
