Alexandra Pietrzyk – DVM
I grew up in sunny California with my parents, two sisters, and our beloved black lab mix, Balbina. Balbina’s impact on my life pushed me to reciprocate that feeling of love and respect to improve the lives’ of other animals. My passion for animal health also aligns with helping owners understand how to achieve and enjoy a long, healthy life with their furry family members. Naturally, that led to my interest in oncology; though I stayed on the west coast for my undergraduate and doctoral education at the University of California, Davis – I jumped at the chance to accept a rotating internship in NYC at Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners. While at BPVP, I found it particularly rewarding to guide pet parents through a tough diagnosis and create a healthcare plan best suited to their needs. Working with pet owners allows me to actively participate in the improvement of pet’s lives; the ultimate reward.
