  • Amy Murphy
    CVT, CCRP
    Director of Medical Services

    Certified Veterinary Technician / Certified Rehabilitation Practitioner.

    Amy has been a vital part of Wauwatosa Veterinary Clinic since 2001 and is a Certified Veterinary Technician and Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP). She started her career as a Licensed (human) Massage Therapist, working in rehabilitation settings and then decided to combine her love of animals with her love of medicine. After attaining her CCRP certification from the University of Knoxville Tennessee in 2011, Amy established Total Pet Rehab at Wauwatosa Veterinary Clinic, where she works with animals of all ages who need help improving their mobility and strength. She especially loves working with our senior patients and their owners to help improve their quality of life, decrease their pain, and keep them moving and their tails wagging! 

    Amy says that one of her favorite parts about working at Wauwatosa Veterinary Clinic is getting to work with other professionals who care about the patients they work with as though they were their own. “I have seen many changes over the years working in veterinary medicine but one thing that stays consistent is this field is a calling for an individual. You have to be a person who not only loves animals, but also loves making a profound impact helping people and their furry family members. 

    Outside of the clinic, Amy likes spending time with her husband Pete and their two dogs –Cash, a 9-year-old German Shorthair Pointer/Lab mix and Waylon, a 2-year-old Yellow Labrador.
