Dr. Dorothy Murray

Associate Veterinarian, DVM, MS

Education: Texas A & M

Pets: 4 Jack Russell Terriers; Rigel, Harmony, Roscoe, Braveheart, some barn cats, horses and chickens

A 1986 graduate of Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Murray also did 5 years of post-doctorate training; an internship at Auburn, teaching Anesthesia for a year at Missouri-Columbia; and completing a 3 year Master’s Thesis and Surgical Residency program at the University of Illinois.

She has worked as an emergency veterinarian, run her own mobile surgical business, and is delighted to be an associate here at Neartown. Extensive training and experience in surgery combined with complete orthopedic instrumentation and state of the art surgical and anesthesia equipment attract many referrals to Dr. Murray. She especially enjoys orthopedic procedures such as cruciate repairs, pinning and plate fractures, and repair of dislocations. She also performs soft tissue procedures such as total ear canal ablations, removal of abdominal masses, and plastic surgery.

In 2006 Dr. Murray was selected by the Consumers Research Council of America as one of America’s Top Veterinarians.

Dr. Murray lives on a small farm in Magnolia with her husband James and assorted horses, pigs, chickens, dogs, and cats. Her Jack Russell Terriers ride with her to the clinic every day.
