Dr. Melissa Feltes

Greetings! I am honored to be a part of the veterinary team at Care Animal Hospital! I was born and raised in eastern Iowa, and then attended Iowa State for undergraduate studies in Animal Science. I graduated from Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999, and then moved to Illinois to join a practice in Arlington Heights. I practiced small animal medicine there for the last 18 years, with a special interest in internal medicine, advanced imaging such as ultrasound, and cancer care. I pride myself on excellent client education and communication.
I met my husband Sean in veterinary school (we were classmates). We live in Wauconda, Illinois with our two daughters, Claire and Kinsey, and our zoo of animals. We currently have one cat, one rabbit, two geriatric Arabian horses, and an assortment of fish. We hope to add a new canine member soon, after recently losing our two old pug girls.
I look forward to starting a new adventure in Pleasant Prairie and to meeting many new clients and patients soon!
