Melanie Vaughan, DVM


Dr. Melanie Vaughan joined our clinic family in 2020 shortly after graduating from the University of the West Indies School of Veterinary Medicine in Trinidad. Mel also has her B.Sc. in Zoology from the University of Guelph and is a member of the Caribbean Veterinary Medical Association. Mel’s passion for exotic animals started from a young age as she grew up with pet birds, reptiles and rodents of all species – and that passion for exotics and birds only grew as her education advanced. Mel has worked and interned at aquariums and zoos both in Canada and Trinidad, further expanding her knowledge of exotic animal medicine and conservation.

In her free time Mel is also a professional dancer, having performed and competed with various artists internationally. She enjoys hiking, scuba diving, traveling the world and hanging out with her rescue conure Rio.
