Melissa Fangmeier – Veterinary Nurse – Primary Care
Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience (Honours I)
Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing
Melissa first completed a Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience (Honours I) in 2014 through The University of Sydney. From there, Melissa began her first job as a veterinary nurse with her local GP veterinary hospital, and quickly fell in love with everything that general practice had to offer. Melissa joined the Primary Care team in 2018. Her favourite role is teaching DVM students everything about veterinary dentistry, from dental radiography to prophylactic treatment. In 2020, Melissa became a Puppy Preschool Instructor for UVTHS. She loves nothing more than supporting new puppy owners through the ups-and-downs of owning a new puppy, and seeing once timid puppies play with confidence!
Melissa adores all animals, but especially loves wildlife, exotic and unusual pets! Melissa is a proud fur-mum to three guinea pigs, two cockatiels, two Eastern Snake-necked Turtles, and a Shih Tzu X named Chicken.
