Murphy hanging up the stethoscope after career as Hancock vet

by Geoff Fox

After 46 years serving Hancock as the town’s veterinarian, Dan Murphy is hanging up his stethoscope and retiring from practice.

Murphy and his office sent out notices to the homes of his patients alerting their families about his pending retirement a few months ago.

Murphy saw his last patient November 30.

Murphy graduated from Oklahoma State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1977.

Murphy chose OSU as there were no veterinary schools in his home state of West . . .
