  • Dr.
    Todd Murphy

    I remember my 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Clayton,
    asking me what I wanted to be when I grew up? 

    That was the easiest question of the day!  

    A Veterinarian.  

    I couldn’t spell the word yet, but I knew being a vet was what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I not only wanted to play with puppies and kitties all day, but more importantly, I wanted to help keep them happy and healthy.

    I have the most amazing job in the world! 

     Again, I get to go to work everyday and not only play with puppies and kitties but we get to do this while perform cutting edge medicine, surgery, regenerative, and rehabilitation and conditioning therapies available.  Everything you can image your MD doing, we can do that same procedure plus a little more, as we are not limited to one species, while having a lot more fun.

    Veterinary medicine is both an art and a science.  Knowing what to do to help our friends when they cannot tell us what is wrong is the biggest challenge yet it is also the most rewarding part of the job. 

    Going to work each day is not just a ‘job’, going to work each day is a passion each and everyone of us at CTCH has the privilege to do.

    Dr. Murphy is a 1995 graduate of Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine, completed an internship in medicine and surgery at the Animal Medical Center in New York City, then pursued and completed a small animal surgical residency at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in Philadelphia, and completed his Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. 

    Dr. Murphy has spent his professional career focusing on returning your pet to proper form and function through both traditional and non-traditional means. While advanced, specialty, surgical practice was the root of Dr. Murphy’s postgraduate training, early on Dr. Murphy learned the significance of physical medicine or rehabilitation and condition (analagous to physical therapy in people) at assisting his patients to quicker and more complete recoveries.
