ALQHA sends our condolences and prayers to the family of Dr. Jody Wagner of Coosa Valley Equine

Jody Wagner first came to Coosa Valley Equine Center in June, 2002 ~ over 21 years ago. Since then he has seen & worked for thousands of horse owners, seen, and worked for thousands upon thousands of horses. Everything from that "emergency same day" Coggins you forgot you needed to being across the surgery table from me for that flipped over large colon at 3AM Christmas morning ~ that one is hard to forget with his kiddos waiting to open packages and we are just hanging fluids in recovery. There were a lot more of the "He is just lame somewhere and I don't know where..." and "He can't hold his left lead..." and "I just saw the swelling last week & Bute hasn't fixed it..." Many of you, when asked who your vet is, said "I use Dr. Jody". He planned to keep helping horses and their owners for years to come. He certainly did not see his career nor his earthly life coming to an end before he reached a lot more of the goals he had set. The horse community was important to him as he was important to them. There will be other horse docs to come along, more horses to be seen, and more horse owners to be helped, but the loss of Dr. Jody does leave a void in our horse world and our horse industry. Please keep him and his family in your hearts & prayers.
