Meet our Doctors

Laura Murphy, DVM

Staff Veterinarian

Emergency & Critical Care

Dr Laura Muyrphy

I grew up in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY and I have spent a large part of my life in New England braving snowstorms and Patriots fans. I entered college thinking that I would pursue veterinary medicine, but later on became interested in teaching ESL. I decided to go back to school to study veterinary medicine after I continually felt myself drawn to the science and the wonderful patients. In my free time, I like to travel, bake, rock climb, and run at a much slower pace than I did in college. I have a cat named Hermes and I am excited to continue my career at Friendship Hospital for Animals.
