Alexandria Murphy, DVM MPH
About Dr. Murphy
As proud Rhode Island native and Tuskegee University alumna, I have been practicing veterinary medicine in the DMV and Richmond areas for over a decade. Currently, I am a relief veterinarian at several hospitals filling in and on those rare occasions that I am not working, I am traveling overseas for work and historic/cultural experiences.
Known as the 'feral doctor', in 2018, I helped start the first feral cat sterilization program in my county along with the Prince George's County Humane Society.
In 2020, I formed the non-profit group i-PAWS Society to continue advocating and sharing veterinary knowledge with other professionals around the globe utilizing my High Quality High Volume Spay Neuter (HQHVSN) training as well as Masters degree in Public Health (Infectious Diseases) to allow an elevated exchange of information for animal health as it pertains to human health.
One of my passions throughout the years was being able to help families with the passing of their loved ones in their own homes. Unfamiliar environments bring not only stress to an animal, but also to the family who is making such a tough decision. My number one goal in veterinary medicine has always been to relieve the suffrage of animals in the most humane and peaceful way possible. I now have the chance to be able to do so and allow our pets to be able to be free from pain and confusion. I extend my services in this capacity outside of normal business hours as I still practice medicine full-time during the day.
