About Melissa

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a graduate from the University of Tennessee where I majored in animal science pre-veterinary medicine and got a minor in biology. All through college (4+) years and 4 years post college I worked in almost every facet of veterinary medicine. I started in emergency critical care medicine for small animals (cats and dogs) I then worked at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in their immunology and virology lab doing research. After that I worked solely in day practices and vaccine clinics as a lead veterinary technician.

I have all the required skills to take care of your furry family member medically but also with immense compassion and a nurturing and comfortable space where they can feel at home and loved while away from you!

Our home has lots of space, a large deck, and a fenced in yard. We have a cat and a dog who love other animals, our Husky LOVES to play and would enjoy any friends that come to stay with us.

The only thing I ask is, if you have a know aggressive dog please be up-front and honest and we can discuss. Our cat and our dog are our babies and we want to make sure that they are still happy and comfortable in their home while hosting visitors.

Looking forward to helping ease the stress of having to leave your dog for any period of time!
