Welcome to BGVH Dr. Amber Murphy

Greetings BGVH Family,

We would like to extend our warmest, and most heartfelt welcome to the newest member our amazing animal care staff, Dr. Amber Murphy.

Dr. Amber Murphy, Petey Pablo (R), and Berg (L)

Dr. Murphy makes veterinarian number three for Brighton Green Veterinary Hospital! That means that we now have two doctors in the hospital three to four days a week, which means we have more available appointments for you and your animals.

Dr. Murphy  went to veterinary school in Australia and has traveled the world. She, her husband, Cain, and her sons Shea and Julian, have been living in Nevada County for the last year.

She was kind enough to provide us with this short biography:

Dr. Amber Murphy received her Bachelors degree in pre-veterinary medicine at the University of Connecticut where she grew up. Prior to vet school, Dr. Murphy relocated to San Diego for a job as a research scientist, where she met her future husband Cain. Her affinity for all animals and their well-being along with a quest to explore new and exciting challenges prompted Dr. Murphy to move her family to Australia to full-fill her lifelong dream to become a veterinarian.  She graduated with second-class merit honors from the globally accredited veterinary school at Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia. Upon graduation, both Dr. Murphy and her husband longed to move back to where they met.  Along with special interests in internal/emergency medicine and soft tissue surgery, Dr. Murphy and her family enjoy the great variety of outdoor activities that Nevada County has to offer.  She is an active member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, California Veterinary Medical Association and the San Diego Veterinary Medical Association.  Dr. Murphy and her husband currently live in Nevada County with their two sons, an American Bull Dog rescue named Petey Pablo and a goofy 1 year old Labrador rescue named Berg.  Dr. Murphy takes great pride in providing excellent standard of care for her patients and outstanding customer service to her clients, and considers herself very fortunate to have found a career and practice that is so personally fulfilling. 



So far Dr. Murphy has been a great fit at BGVH and we are all very excited to work with her, and for all you to meet her.

She is currently seeing patients Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and rotating Saturdays.

If you’d like to schedule an appointment with her, please call us at 530-477-6863.
