He has managed more than 30 veterinary hospitals and trained hundreds of licensed veterinarians in the fields of veterinary surgery, anesthesia, and clinical medicine during his 37 year career. Amy Cox is involved in the animal rescue community in the DFW area and has provided first responder services for the animals during natural disasters. The Coxes love to travel with their dogs and can often be found participating in costume contests like McKinney’s own Krewe of Barkus Parade and the New York Pet Fashion Show, which they have now won, twice.
