Alex Melrose

Dr Alex Melrose

Practice Principal

B.V.Sc., M.R.C.V.S.

Alex checking Vegas (our clinic's 3 year old chocolate Burmese) over Dr Alex Melrose - Vetfor injuries from lying around too much (Even the average cat sleeps 16 hours a day! The sleepiest of all mammals).

Vegas's more rounded and definitely more silent shadow Jim, would be close by, probably eating some stolen nurses sandwiches. Keep an eye out for these two cats in the waiting room looking for attention.

Alex also has a fantastic Black Brussels Griffon, Prince. He's friendly to one & all, knows lots of tricks, is sneaky, very fast & can swim and surf. Check him out on his own Facebook page.

Alex built VetCare in 2004 and is proud of the advances the clinic has made in animal health care, and all the people and pets helped since that time. He loves all things to do with the ocean from diving, surfing and fishing to sailing, and most other sports including boxing and kickboxing. Alex and his wife Karla have a little bundle of fun named Darius. He is three this year.
