Dr. Alexandra Kintz-Konegger, DVM MS-TCVM, is originally from Austria, where graduated from the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna. Her educational journey took her, among other places, to the Taiwan National University, Taipei, for clinical rotations, and Pinnawella, Sri Lanka tending to Asian elephants in an elephant orphanage. After moving to the USA she obtained her veterinary accreditation through the AVMA’s Educational Commission for Foreign Veterinarian Graduates. Dr. K accepted an internship/associate position at an equine surgical clinic in Apollo, PA. While working there, she enjoyed traveling to Cairo, Egypt for equine orthopedic and breeding consultations.
Eventually Dr K. pivoted her practice to small animal medicine and surgery and opened her own practice – K. Vet Animal Care. Throughout the years, Dr. K has developed a lifelong interest in Eastern medicine & acupuncture. She earned a master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine from the Chi University, Florida, and feels truly at home in both Western and Eastern medicine for all animals. Her free time is spent with her family and many animals, including goats, horses, chickens, cats, bunnies, and dogs, on her family farm in Latrobe. Dr K.’ s love for travel and experiencing new cultures continues, and she can be found exploring the jungles of Costa Rica or mountain slopes in the Rockies when time allows.
Her magic power at K.Vet is to start every day with earnest optimism!
