Meet Our

Dr. Alex Swope

DVM, Owner

From the age of 7, Dr. Swope just knew that she was going to be a veterinarian. Since then, she has dedicated herself to always being the very best vet she can be for her patients. Her goal is to treat all pets as if they were her own and provide them with the very best care.

A native Southern California girl, she grew up in Van Nuys and La Crescenta before moving to the Inland Empire for her undergraduate and graduate studies. She earned her Bachelor of Science from Cal Poly Pomona and went on to obtain her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Western University of Health Sciences.

She’s finally settled down in Shadow Hills, where she shares her home and life with six dogs, a pig named Nikki, eight kitties, five horses, a fish named Marcus, four ducks, and a flock of chickens—and two humans!
