Melissa Holmes graduated from vet school in 2000 and has worked as a small animal veterinarian in England, Sydney, and on the Central Coast.
Melissa is passionate about performing good quality and ethical small animal veterinary medicine. In doing so, she aims to enhance the wellbeing of both the pets in her care, and their owners.
Melissa has many of her own pets: one dog, one cat and several chickens. Melissa also raises guide dog puppies- welcoming 8 week old tyrants and transforming them into mature dogs, ready to be trained in the guide dog program.
Melissa’s non-veterinary interests include taking care of her three animal-loving children; stand-up-paddleboarding, skiing, travel, and watching daggy comedies with her husband!
