Dr. Alexandra C. Shailor joined the Middlesex County Animal Hospital team in June of 2017. In Dr. Shailor’s time with us she has shown great skill and devotion to her clients. Always having loved animals, she told her preschool teacher that she wanted to be a vet when she grew up. She first started volunteering at a local vet clinic when she was only 11 years old, and certainly never looked back!
Dr. Shailor grew up in Beverly, Massachusetts and is happy to be back in New England after living in Pennsylvania for the past few years. She attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst for her undergraduate degree in Pre-Veterinary Medicine and went on to attend the University of Pennsylvania where she received her veterinary degree. Since joining Middlesex County Animal Hospital, her clients have commended her thoughtful approach to cases and for always going above and beyond the expected care. Her passion for animals is made clear by her warm and understanding approach to all patient matters. Dr. Shailor is particularly interested in surgery and geriatric care.
She also has a strong love for rescue and shelter medicine, and enjoys giving back to the community. On her days out of the hospital, you can often find her volunteering by performing surgeries at the MSPCA. In her infrequent amounts of spare time, Dr. Shailor enjoys reading classic literature, going antiquing, and spending time with her Pitbull mix named Sampson and her two cats, Rocky and Desdemona.
