Dr. Alexandra John
The bond between humans and animals has always been something that fascinated Dr. Alexandra John. She knows just how much her own pets mean to her and her family, and being able to nurture and strengthen those connections for other pet owners is a dream come true! Dr. John is proud to help the area’s pets and animal parents as a part of the veterinary team here at the Animal Hospital of Richboro.
Dr. John attended Haverford College for her undergraduate studies, then continued on to study veterinary care at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine, which she’d been dreaming of attending ever since she was 13 years old. After living in California for a time, Dr. John relocated to this area to continue her journey in animal medicine—it wasn’t long before she had signed on as a member of the Animal Hospital of Richboro’s skilled veterinary staff.
As a vet, Dr. John has special passions for surgery work and dermatology. She’s overjoyed when a patient of hers can rest comfortably in their own skin after healing from a skin infection or pesky allergic reaction! Most of all, she loves to interact directly with the area’s pet owners and meet new animal companions on a daily basis.
Outside of the office, Dr. John enjoys exercising (she’s even completed triathlons!), playing the guitar and singing, and spending time with her family and pets. She and her fiancé have a beautiful daughter, and the family shares their home with four pets: Missy, a Black Labrador who “talks” to let her humans know what she needs; a handsome Akita/Shepherd mix named Morrow; and two quirky cats who go by Kitty and Uma Thurman.
