Dr. Melanie Tallon graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2004 and came home to Thunder Bay to join the Highview and Meadows team until 2006. She returned to school for a Small Animal Medicine/Surgery internship at the Atlantic Veterinary College, and then jumped right across the country to Vancouver to join Canada West Veterinary Specialists as an ICU Hospitalist until 2009. During that time, she also served as an Emergency Locum with the Vancouver Animal Emergency Clinic until Highview and Meadows welcomed her back in July of 2009.
She is interested in all areas of veterinary medicine, with a special interest in ER/ICU, ultrasound, and geriatric medicine.
Dr. Tallon and her husband share their home with two trouble-maker rescue cats, Fate and Häxa. When the time allows, she has an interest in sustainable agriculture and horticulture in Northwestern Ontario, various craft projects (crochet, needle work, and her newest passion-pottery!) and the local arts scene.
