Melissa Horton, Medical Director

We are excited to welcome, Dr. Melissa Moss, our new medical director. Melissa moved to this clinic after working in a 24 daytime and emergency practice in the Tacoma area. Dr. Moss currently resides in Tacoma, Washington but is originally from Tucson, Arizona. She came to the Washington area after completing her veterinary degree in 2009 from Western University of Health Sciences in California. She went on to complete a rotating internship at Tufts University and then came to Washington for a more specialized internship at Summit Veterinary Referral Center, a local specialty clinic in Tacoma. After completing the internships she went on to practice at a VCA hospital in Tacoma and other emergency clinics in the area. At these clinics she provided general wellness services, emergency and critical care, internal medicine and soft tissue surgery. Professionally, Dr. Moss enjoys internal medicine and critical care cases that are complicated/challenging as well as providing wellness care. Outside of work, Dr. Moss enjoys outside activities and sports. Melissa and her husband Calvin, a MMA fighter and gym owner, are enjoying their first child, Cannon, who is 2 years old now. They also have 2 dogs; a Yorkie/Schnauzer named Jack and a Jack Russell Terrier named Zee. We are very excited to have Dr. Moss as part of our team!
