OUR CARE TEAM
DR. MELANIE MURPHY
Dr. Melanie Murphy knew as a small child that being a “vegeternarian” was her life’s calling. She was born in Blue Island, Illinois, and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Illinois. She then went “over the pond” and earned her Veterinary Medicine Degree from the University of Liverpool in England in 2000.
In 2012, she married the love of her life, David and now lives with 2 English Mastiffs (Little Myl and GG), 2 Great Danes (Markus and Raven), 1 Bengal (Newey), and 2 Maine Coons (Macavity and Rum Tum Tugger). Little Myl and GG are often here at Noah’s Animal Hospital at Wheaton and love to meet our clients!!
When she’s not making new four legged friends here at the clinic, Dr. Murphy loves traveling, horse racing, Formula One racing, cooking and a wide variety of sports. Many times, she can be found curled up with her pets, catching up on the latest fiction and non-fiction best sellers.

From his early days with his 5 siblings on a farm in Shelby County, Indiana, Vulcan knew that he wanted to be close to the action of the big city. His early years were spent in Indianapolis, learning how to handle the toughest customers, even big dogs like Mastiffs!
Never content to let moss grow under him, Vulcan soon headed to the Great West where he enjoyed 2 years of beautiful scenery in the Mile High state of Colorado. But, knowing that there was need for him in the Midwest, Vulcan returned and has now made a home here in Wheaton.
You may not see Vulcan, but rest assured that he is here, watching over the day to day happenings and ensuring that all is well. If you want a peek at this handsome boy, just rattle a treat bag...he will be by shortly thereafter!
