Team Leader & Veterinary Nurse

Alexcia Thorogood

Hi, I’m Alexcia. I started with Pet Doctors Howick in 2020 as a veterinary nurse. I am the current team leader for our clinic. I graduated from Unitec and have been in the veterinary field for over 15 years, working in a variety of afterhours and specialist clinics. My passion is in GP medicine, where I enjoy being able to educate clients and give advice on the best pet care available. I also have a strong passion for rescue work having hand raised a fair few kittens over the course of my career. I love my job at Pet Doctors Howick as I get to meet and work with people from all walks of life, and get to inspire the newer generations of nurses coming through from our amazing training facilities. You will find me in reception mostly these days or floating around the clinic offering support where I can. In my spare time I am an avid movie goer, like to spend time with my animals (1 dog, Poppy, and my rescue cats: Norman, Minnie and Buffy). I have an interest in continuing education and am currently working towards completing further studies in business management.
