About Dr. Melkus, CityVet – Lovers Lane

Which school did you attend?

I went to school at St. Matthew’s University in Grand Cayman Island for my first 3 years of veterinary school and then finished at Oklahoma State University where I completed my clinical year.

What do you enjoy the most about being a Veterinarian?

My favorite part of veterinary medicine is seeing the joy in people’s faces when they adopt a pet!

What is your pet’s name?

Bentley, a Great Pyrenees/English Lab mix.

What advice would you give a first time pet owner?

It is extremely important to start training your pet as early as the first day that you get them. Crate training, socializing them with other animals and children, and working on good manners will inevitably make having a pet much more enjoyable for you and everyone around you for years to come!

What do you enjoy doing with your free time?

I enjoy taking my dog to my family’s ranch, running, swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, going to new restaurants, and being outside on pretty days
