Dr. Matt Mink

Medical Director VEG Murfreesboro

Virginia Tech; Virginia Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine

Dr. Mink became a DVM in 2010 and worked as a GP vet, then made the jump into emergency and never looked back! He spent over a decade in ERs in VA, NC, PA, and NY, from small hospitals to large specialty hospitals. This experience gave him a unique perspective on emergency medicine. Special interests: soft tissue surgery, critical care, anesthesia/analgesia, and wound management. Dr. Mink currently lives just outside of Murfreesboro with his significant other Caitlin, Islay, a 15-year-old German Shorthair, and Dash, a 2-year-old Dachshund.
