Dr. Melissa Pinto graduated from Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph, in 2018. She was thrilled at the prospect of joining Dr. Dana Cox and team to continue their promise to provide exceptional quality medicine and client service to the Thornhill and surrounding community. Dr. Pinto has a strong interest in medical and surgical oncology. This was sparked through her work as a summer research student at the Ontario Veterinary College Animal Cancer Centre. She also enjoys spending her days interacting with her clients, developing lasting relationships that ultimately lead to the best care for her patients.
When Dr. Pinto is not at the hospital, she enjoys spending time with her dog, Joey, and her two cats, Mariah Hairy and Beatrix. She also loves baking, hiking, and taking on new challenges. Most recently, she began dancing hula and loves learning more about Hawaiian culture through its most celebrated art form.
