Veterinary Specialty Hospital of the Carolinas Adds New Emergency Veterinarian to Cary Location
Cary, N.C. –February 9, 2009 – The Veterinary Specialty Hospital of the Carolinas (VSH) recently hired Dr. Josh Humphrey as a new emergency veterinarian at its 24-hour Cary facility.
Dr. Humphrey joins four other emergency doctors in the Cary location and will be responsible for treating emergency and critical cases as well as monitoring all hospitalized patients at night and on the weekends. He will communicate with pet owners, treat referrals that are unable to make it to the hospital during the day and will also evaluate and treat walk-in emergency cases.
Dr. Humphrey started his career in information technology after graduating from East Carolina University in Greenville, N.C. While continuing to work with computers at Duke University Medical Center, he volunteered at a small animal hospital in Durham, N.C. He then decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine and graduated from North Carolina State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in Raleigh, N.C. in 2006. Dr. Humphrey went on to complete a postgraduate internship at the University of Minnesota School of Veterinary Medicine where he developed an interest in neurology. Prior to joining VSH, Dr. Humphrey served as a research fellow at NCSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine and as a relief doctor at a local veterinary practice.
“It is Dr. Humphrey’s passion to help animals that led him to a career change,” said Veterinary Specialty Hospital co-founder, Dr. Kevin Concannon. “That passion and commitment is evident in the way he interacts with both patients and their owners.”
