Dr. Melissa Clayton graduated from University of Illinois Vet School in 2012 – with honors. She volunteers going to poor countries (and needy areas of the US) and offering veterinary care like spay/neuter clinics and vaccinations to pets in need. Dr. Clayton is our main surgeon, and performs surgery and dentals on Thursdays. Since the majority of what she does is anesthesia, general surgery, and dental surgery, she is VERY good at it! We are so lucky to have her with us! One of her signatures is snuggling post-op patients in blankets and having staff carry them like babies, which they love. Dr. Clayton has 3 cats and enjoys yoga, hiking, kayaking, and travelling when not being a super-surgeon.
