About Us

Dr. Alex Swope

From the age of 7, Alex just knew that she was going to be a veterinarian. Since then, she has dedicated herself to always being the very best vet that she could be for her patients. Her goal is to treat all pets as if they were her own and provide them with the very best care.

A native Southern California girl, she grew up in Van Nuys and La Crescenta before moving to the Inland Empire for her undergraduate and graduate schools. She earned her Bachelors of Science from Cal Poly Pomona and went on to obtain her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Western University of Health Sciences.

She’s finally settled down in Shadow Hills, where she shares her home and life with 6 border collies, 3 chihuahuas, a pig, 8 kitties, 5 horses, 4 goats, a sheep, a couple of ducks and a flock of chickens. Oh yeah, and two humans!

Dr. Elianne Perez

Dr. Elianne Perez was born and raised in Southern California and currently resides in the San Fernando Valley. She completed her general education requirements at College of the Canyons and subsequently obtained her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences and marine biology at California State University, Northridge. During her time as a college student, Dr. Perez’s interest in veterinary medicine was ignited while taking a class in conservation biology. Her desire to help the environment and animals eventually led her to volunteer at a local veterinary clinic where her interest was further nurtured by various knowledgeable and supportive individuals working in the veterinary profession. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Perez began veterinary school at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California and graduated with her doctorate degree in veterinary medicine as a member of the Class of 2017. Her veterinary interests include general practice, surgical oncology and research in comparative medicine.

When Dr. Perez is not working at Sweet Home Veterinary Hospital, you can find her partaking in her favorite hobbies including arts and crafts, graphic design, and photography. She also enjoys spending time at home with her family of humans and many furry friends!
