Karen Murphy
Veterinarian

Dr. Karen Murphy joined the River Road Veterinary Hospital veterinary medical team in January 2017. She is a seasoned veterinarian with over 20 years of working with dogs, cats, and farm animals. Dr. Murphy still sees the occasional pet sheep or goat right in the office, and she is our pet pig veterinarian. In addition, she is a beekeeper, and will assist other beekeepers with their apiary veterinary needs. Karen enjoys life on her homestead, with her garden, orchard, and bees. Her pets include Samson, a Mini American Shepherd that you will often see here at RRVH, a mixed breed dog named Chili, 2 crazy kittens, a flock of chickens, and one goose. In her spare time, Karen likes to spend time outside hiking, snowshoeing, and gardening. She also bakes bread and other goodies for a local 'farm to table' cafe and farm stand.
