Dr Henry Pang

Veterinarian (BBiomed DVM)

Henry is a small animal veterinarian who recently joined the team at Melton Veterinary Clinic. Born and raised in Melbourne, he finished high school and started tertiary education in Biomedical Science at Victoria University before transferring and completing Biomedicine at the University of Melbourne. From there he was accepted into and completed the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program at the same institution. He is a 2015 graduate. A strong passion and interest in dairy cattle medicine during the DVM program led him to begin his career in mixed animal practice as a dairy cattle veterinarian. There he spent a lot of time on farm assisting farmers and their dairy herds to help treat sick cattle. After 2 years out in the country, he made the decision to return back to Melbourne to be closer to family and friends and focus on small animal work, starting at Melton Veterinary Clinic in February 2018

Mamma Cat

Head Nurse (Clinic Pet)

You may have noticed when visiting our clinic the two 'clinic cats', Mamma Cat and Sir Richard.
Both of whom were abandoned and brought to the clinic.

Mamma Cat was brought in as an injured stray cat who was also heavily pregnant.
Initial diagnostics revealed a broken Femoral Head requiring surgery, which unfortunately could not be performed until she had given birth.
Mamma gave birth at the clinic to four healthy kittens which were re-homed to very good clients.
A Femoral Head and Neck Excision was performed then and upon recovery we discovered that Mamma had become a valuable and much loved member of the clinic.

Sir Richard

Nurse Manager (Clinic Pet)

Sir Richard was brought to the clinic as a stray, six week old kitten, which had been dumped in a plastic bag on the side of the highway.
He was covered in dirt and mud but the only injury evident was a small corneal ulcer.
This quickly healed with medication and love and then he was promptly adopted by Mamma Cat
