Alex Melrose (Vet)
Alex Melrose started his vet career travelling, working and learning in Nelson, Mt Maunganui and the U.K. He Returned to Auckland in 1999 and then opened his own animal hospital, VetCare in Grey Lynn in 2004.
He has gathered an amazing team of ultra dedicated vets and vet nurses and they now strive to help improve the health and happiness of over 7000 pets from the surrounding community. As a clinic they work closely with many animal welfare groups and directly help South Pacific Animal Welfare (SPAW) by being on their governing board.
Alex has two super cool cats Jim (loves food) and Vegas (loves kids) which live at VetCare Grey Lynn (typically on our reception desk), and his griffon, Prince, lives at home, entertaining him and his wife Karla. They are expecting the arrival of a first child (a son) later this year.
