    Melinda has been managing a veterinary clinic since 1999 after she graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Psychology.  Melinda grew up in a small town in Northern Indiana before she moved to the big city.  She now lives in the cozy Lake Claire neighborhood with her husband, two beautiful children and her spunky cat.

    "Working on the administration side of the hospital, I find great comfort in knowing that I am doing everything I can to help support the people that work so hard every day to help our patients get healthy and stay healthy.  I come to work every day excited to see our many clients and their little ones and feel pride in my team and what they will accomplish that day."


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
