meet the vet

Hi, I’m Dr. Alexandra Thornton! I am a Central California native who loves living in Sacramento. As a veterinarian since 2015, I love this profession more each year. I have the coolest job in the world because I get to be surrounded by other humans who love animals. With the Sactown Vet promise in mind, I will help you help your pet. I feel privileged to have this role and can’t wait to meet you.

Dr. Thornton
