Meet Hillside’s new associate veterinarian, Dr. Wise! 


Dr. Melissa Wise spent her early years living in St. Louis, MO before her family moved to Westerville, OH in 1999. Dr. Wise received her Bachelor of Science degree in biology and animal science from The University of Findlay in 2011. In 2015, Dr. Wise graduated with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. Her main interests include companion animal internal medicine, behavior, and critical care.


Dr. Wise recently moved to the Mount Vernon area with her husband, Lance, and their two sons, Callen and Hathen. Both boys are excited to welcome their baby brother or sister this winter. Lance is a graduate of Ohio University and is currently working as a probation officer. Callen is a  active 3 year old who enjoys keeping his parents on their toes. Hathen enjoys following his older brother around. The Wise family consists of it’s fair share of four legged members as well. 5 cats (Annie, Gizmo, Jinx, Dory, and Linus), 3 dogs (Athena, Brego, and Hulk) and 2 parakeets (Sky and Clarkie) help make the Wise family complete. Hopefully, some chicken and goats will join in the family fun.


Outside of work, Dr. Wise enjoys gardening, hiking, being outdoors, and spending time with her family. Although she enjoys watching the Blue Jackets, she is an avid fan of the St. Louis Blues, the 2018-2019 Stanley Cup Champions! She also helps her husband cheer on the Cleveland Browns.


Dr. Wise is currently accepting new clients and new patients. She has appointment hours Monday-Friday with surgeries scheduled for Thursday mornings. Please stop by to meet Dr. Wise or call to schedule an appointment for your four-legged friend. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Wise to the Hillside Family! #ourdoctorsrock #teamhvc #lovingexpertcare
