Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM)
Dr. Hufnagel was born in Okarche, OK, in 1965 and grew up in North Dakota and Oklahoma, where his family raised cattle, pigs, and crops. After graduating from high school in Hugo, OK, he attended Oklahoma State University, receiving a BS in agricultural economics in 1988 and a doctorate of veterinary medicine in 1991.
From 1991 to 2001, Dr. Hufnagel worked in a mixed animal veterinary practice in Minot, ND. From 2001 to 2004, he lived in San Antonio and worked for Pfizer Animal Health while also working part time in a small animal practice. In 2004, he moved back to the OKC area, where he provided veterinary relief services at a variety of practices. Westbrook Animal clinic was purchased in 2007, and it was then merged with Animal Medical Clinic (Dr. Pribil’s practice) in 2008, forming Pet Medical Center of Edmond. PMC’s current location became operational in January 2010.
Other than meeting and visiting with clients, Dr. H enjoys the challenge of “medicine” cases, which might be compared to a crime/detective case. The disease is the crime, the differential diagnosis list is the suspect list, and the data gained from the exam/testing/treatment are the clues that help solve the case!
Dr. Hufnagel and his wife, LeAnn, have two daughters (Mary Katherine and Elizabeth Ann) and two sons (John Paul and Joseph Michael). They all enjoy home schooling on their tiny six-acre farm, where they raise garden produce, fruit, honey, beef, pork, and eggs, and spend time with their dogs, cats, and horse. They also enjoy being active in their church and community.
