Born and raised in Ontario Canada where he lived until he moved out west to Edmonton Alberta.  Dr. Cox was living in Edmonton Alberta for 15 years working in and around various veterinary hospitals as a veterinary assistant.  After several attempts he was finally admitted to vet school where he was able to pursue his life long dream of becoming a veterinarian.  Schooling and work took Dr. Cox all over North America from Iowa, to North Carolina, California and finally back to Southern Alberta where he now works in both the Vulcan Veterinary Hospital and High River Vet Clinic.

He is a mixed animal practitioner that works with both large and small animals with a focus on animal health and wellbeing.  For large animals he will work the gambit from cattle to sheep and goats and most species in-between.  Small animal practice includes basic and emergency surgery, small animal internal medicine and general health and well being of patients.  If you have any questions he is more than happy to answer and help your pets and your family feel welcome.
