Dr. Jimmy Murphy

Growing up on a farm inspired Dr. Jim Murphy to become a vet. “When I was a kid, our vet would come out to our farm in Hernando, MS. I thought it was the coolest job.”

Why did you become a vet?

We lived on a farm with all types of animals when I was very young and I grew up always having dogs and cats.

What do you most enjoy about your job?

Combining my love for people and pets. I love hearing a cat purr and getting licked in the face by my canine patients.

What do you love most about living in Memphis?

The overall friendliness of people and rooting for my Memphis Tigers.

What secret talent do you wish that you had?

I wish I had the ability to interpret exactly what my patients are thinking (most of the time).
