Allegra was born Singapore and her family moved to Houston when she was very young. She graduated from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 2012 and moved to the Rio Grande Valley. She joined our team October 2017 and has been an asset to us, providing health care for not only cats and dogs but for pocket pets, exotics, birds and local wildlife. Her calm demeanor with her patients helps keep them relaxed while they are here. Her favorite thing about being a veterinarian is getting to strengthen the bond between people and their pets by helping them lead longer happier lives. Her special interest include avian/exotic medicine, senior pet health, dermatology and ultrasonography. She has a sweet Labrador named MJ, and a Bengal with attitude named Tiger Lilly. She loves spending some of her free time reading and loves book recommendations. She enjoys eating and trying out new places, and welcomes food recommendations. She currently resides in McAllen with her husband.
