Dr. Richard Hufnagel


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.

COVID-19 Update

To all Pet Medical Center of Edmond Clients: We have started curbside appointments at this time. We are asking all clients upon arrival at the clinic to pull up to the front door and remain in their vehicle. One of our team members will come out and discuss further instructions. We are going to greatly limit the number of people entering our facility due to the COVID-19 concerns. We are still scheduling all regular appointments at this time and seeing emergencies. We politely ask any client with fever and/or respiratory symptoms to reschedule their appointment if it is a non-emergency situation. If your pet is experiencing an emergency situation and you are not feeling well, please notify our receptionist upon arrival so our staff can take further precautions. We are taking these steps out of an abundance of caution. Thank you for your understanding as we all find our way through this challenging time.
