Dr. Alexa Jurak was born and raised in Montreal and started at Clint Moore Animal Hospital in June 2014. She finished her Bachelors in Biology at Elon University and then her Veterinary Degree at St Matthews in 2013. Originally Dr. Jurak started in large animal medicine with a well-respected practice in Wellington. However, her passion for small companion animals became apparent while also working emergency and critical care at a local clinic.
She then found her home at Clint Moore. Dr. Jurak loves all animals and you may see her treating ferrets, rabbits and the occasional pig as well as our feline and canine friends. She is a very talented surgeon and has helped many animals in their most critical state, which is perfect because Dr. Jurak takes a special interest in specialty veterinary surgery. When relaxing you will find Dr. Jurak riding horses or salsa dancing, but her favorite thing to do is explore far off places like Ireland, Uganda and Qatar.
