Lexy Wetzel
Staff Veterinarian DVM
Dr. Wetzel is a longtime San Diego County resident, having grown up in Poway, California. She decided she wanted to be a veterinarian at seven years old after forming a special bond with her family's beagle named Baxter. Dr. Wetzel earned her B.S. at the University of California Davis, where she met her longterm boyfriend and adopted their beloved dachshund, Cali. She then moved to the midwest to attend veterinary school at the University of Minnesota. She misses the cheese curds, kayaking in their many lakes, and checking out frozen waterfalls during the winter, but she is very happy to be back home in sunny California. Dr. Wetzel completed a rotating internship at VCA California Veterinary Specialists Murrieta, and looks forward to being a part of the VCA Market Street team. Her clinical interests include preventative care, pain management pharmacology, end of life palliative care, and client education. Outside of work, Dr. Wetzel enjoys taking Cali to Dog Beach, cooking (including making her own hot sauce), and spending time with her friends and family
