Alexandria Murphy, DVM MPH
About Dr. Murphy
A proud Tuskegee University alumna, I have been practicing veterinary medicine in the DMV and Richmond areas for a decade. Currently, I am a relief veterinarian, meaning I move around to many different hospitals to help them when shifts need to be covered. Those rare occasions that I am not working, I am traveling overseas to other countries volunteering my surgical skills to help under-served pet populations. In 2020, I formed the non-profit group i-PAWS Society to continue advocating and sharing veterinary knowledge with other professionals around the globe. I completed my Masters in Public Health (Infectious Diseases) to allow an elevated exchange of information for animal health as it pertains to human health. In 2018, I also helped start the first feral cat sterilization program in the county with the Prince George's County Humane Society.
One of my passions throughout the years was to be able to help pet families with the passing of their loved ones. Being in an unfamiliar hospital environment can 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, who are nothing less than family members, to be able to be free from pain while in the comfort of their own home. I extend my services in this capacity outside of normal business hours as I still am a full time veterinary practitioner during the day.
