Dr. Hurt is Veterinary Surgical Center's new associate! Dr Hurt is originally from Cocoa Beach, FL. He graduated from UCF with a degree in chemistry, but his love of animals led him to pursue a doctorate of veterinary medicine which was obtained from the University of Florida. After veterinary school Dr Hurt worked in general practice, emergency medicine, and shelter medicine. Eventually he was accepted to a surgical internship at Alameda East Veterinary Hospital in Denver, CO. It was this experience that led to an opportunity for advanced veterinary surgical training at Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine, which he just recently completed. He is now a resident of Jupiter, and enjoys helping animals with his surgical skills during the week, and spending time on the beach during the weekend.
