Dr. Faith Hughes was bitten by the “horse bug” at 6 years old and has yet to get over it and knew for as long as she could remember that she wanted to be a vet. While hauling horses for extra money during undergraduate and vet school at Auburn, she became familiar with Peterson Smith and decided that is where she wanted to be when she finished her training. She joined the practice in 1991.
Dr. Hughes is board certified in Large Animal Surgery. She enjoys surgeries of all varieties, but especially likes colics because no two are exactly alike. She calls her farm “The Island of Misfit Toys,” as it is home to a variety of critters in need of a place to live. In her spare time, she raises orphaned wildlife and a few cattle and sheep.Back to Vets
