Marcus Dela Cruz, Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Marcus Dela Cruz joined PETS Referral Center as an emergency veterinarian in 2022. He grew up in Sacramento, CA and attended Sonoma State University where he earned a B.S. in Molecular and Cellular Biology. He then went on to graduate from Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2018.


What Dr. Dela Cruz enjoys most about veterinary medicine is being a voice for the voiceless and working to improve the human-animal bond. At the start of 2021, he started a blog with the goal of being a resource for pet owners, providing helpful information and advice related to veterinary medicine. There is a lot of misinformation out there and his goal is to be a transparent and reliable source of information for pet parents who are looking to do the best for their pets.

 

On his days off he loves exploring the Bay Area with his wife, Allyson, and their Labrador Retriever, Charlie.
