  • 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!
