Dr. Christian Broadhurst,
Senior Staff Veterinarian
Dr. Christian Broadhurst joined the CCHS in June of 2004 after graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University Of Florida College Of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Broadhurst worked part-time with our clinic for 8 years prior to completing vet school and was more than welcomed back as a member of our team of compassionate care providers. Dr. Broadhurst is committed to our mission of spaying and neutering and dedicates himself to ensuring humane treatment for all living things. He volunteers his time to several worthwhile animal causes and works tirelessly toward a goal of seeing Clay County as a no-kill county through spay/neuter and adoption efforts. He has a large family that includes not only his three adorable children, but also four dogs, seven cats, koi, saltwater fish, two leopard tortoises and a ball python!
Dr. Suzy Broadhurst
Dr. Suzy Broadhurst returned to CCHS this month as a staff veterinarian. She is a native of Indianapolis, Indiana, with a very diverse background. Originally, Dr. Broadhurst carried out her Masters in medical genetics from the University of Sydney, Australia where she worked in the Newborn screening unit at the children's hospital. She soon returned to school to pursue her true calling in veterinary medicine. She attended veterinary school in Ireland and Scotland where she graduated from the University of Glasgow, Scotland Veterinary School in 2008. Upon graduation, she started as an equine veterinarian in Kentucky before joining us in 2009 at the Clay County Humane Society. She met her husband Dan through her colleague Dr. Chris Broadhurst (his twin). Dan and Suzy now live in Fleming Island with their beautiful daughter and many pets which include 3 dogs (Lucy the Landseer, Kona the 3-legged lab, Stitch the Springer mix), 2 cats (Butters and Darwin) and a Harlequin macaw named Logan.
