Dr. Melissa Vetter
My parents say my career in veterinary medicine started when I was a small child, as I was always trying to help sick or injured animals – baby birds that had fallen out of the nest, a frog that lost part of its leg, raising baby bunnies that had lost their mother. My childhood desire to care for animals and to be their advocate grew into a passion that led me to pursue a career as a veterinarian. After I graduated from The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in Philadelphia, I practiced in Baltimore, MD for a brief time. Having spent my whole life on the east coast, I was ready for a change, and headed west to Salt Lake City to begin a new adventure. When I am not at the clinic, my husband and I enjoy the natural beauty of Utah as much as possible by hiking and camping. Our lab Pacer joins us on many outings, and our other three fur babies (two cats Sebastian and Norah, and another dog Charlie) love to snuggle when we get home.
If Linda is not in the clinic, she is often photographing dogs in ridiculously adorable scenarios. When you come into our clinic, you will find that most of our photographs were taken by this amazingly talented woman. She also enjoys travelling to dog shows where she is often showing her beautifully trained pups.
Lizzie has always known she wanted to work with animals She has spent most of her career working in hospitality prior to joining us and loves helping others. Lizzie has attended JATC at Slick where she spent time studying at their veterinary technician program. Lizzie has two dogs of her own Penny and Nova, as well as two cats Piper and Wylbert. In her free time Lizzie enjoys shooting a round of pool to help relax, going fishing (mostly the ice kind) or attending care shows.
Sarah grew up in Colorado Springs but moved to Utah to attend school at Broadview University. She graduated in 2017 with a degree in veterinary technology and applied science and got married to her husband Austin the same day she graduated college. She enjoys spending time with her daughter, her two Pomeranians, and watching movie marathons with her husband. She’s very artistic, so when she’s not working, she’s usually baking or painting.
