Dr. Melissa Vermette

Mayfair-DrVermetteWhen Dr. Melissa Vermette was only five years old, she rode along with her mother to pick out the family dog. She recalls being chased by a herd of adorable puppies, and getting attacked with slobbery, loving kisses upon falling to the ground. On the way home—new puppy in tow—she asked her mother what kind of job she could have that would allow her to work with animals. Dr. Vermette has been hooked on veterinary medicine ever since that fateful day!

Dr. Vermette was raised in Clio with her parents and two sisters. She attended Michigan State University to receive her Bachelor’s degree, then headed to Iowa State University to study veterinary medicine and earn her Doctorate. She was especially proud to have her very first peer-reviewed article published during her veterinary school career!

After practicing in California for a year, Dr. Vermette moved back to her home state and joined the Mayfair Animal Hospital family in early February of 2018 as an Associate Veterinarian. She brings with her special passions for internal medicine, neurology, and client education—Dr. Vermette loves to advise her clientele on the best possible ways to care for their beloved family members, and she also likes to witness the incredible bonds between pets and owners firsthand.

When time permits away from work, Dr. Vermette enjoys camping, biking and playing sports, reading good books, watching movies, baking, crafting, singing, and spending quality time with her family.
