Dr. Melissa Miller
An Arizona native, Melissa is a true "desert rat" and enjoys the 110 degree days. She spent her summers working at a local boarding stable learning to care for animals of all sorts, including horses, fowl, poultry, cats, dogs, small ruminants, and one very stubborn steer. She attended Arizona State University Polytech campus for undergraduate studies and actually worked as a technician at Amigo before being accepted to vet school. She went to Western University of Health Sciences for vet school, located in southern California. Melissa considered the LA suburbs far too cold and returned to Arizona for her internship at a local emergency and specialty center (VCA ARECA in Mesa). She worked at a few other clinics in town before coming "home" to Amigo!
In her spare time, she cares for her two half-Arabian horses, Key and Bonfire, her 3 tortoises, and five dogs. The dogs include a Labradoodle named Donut, a Dachshund/ Miniature Pinscher named Otter , a Cocker Spaniel named Jackson, as well as two foster-failures, a Chihuahua named Ollie and her daughter, the half-Yorkie Wren (who you can usually see helping at Amigo as our Head Nurse!)
