Dr. Melissa Knowles

Veterinarian

Dr. Knowles graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2011. She chose Veterinary Medicine because she loved the outdoors and working with animals. After graduation, she spent six years in Saskatchewan practicing mixed animal practice before deciding to head for warmer climes and to focus on small animal medicine.

Dr. Knowles joined the clinic in Spring 2019. She has a strong background in soft tissue and orthopedic surgery and enjoys donating her skills to under-serviced areas in Canada and around the world. She is an avid traveller and spends as much time outdoors as she can with her partner Aidan, and two dogs Ayla and Phoenix. Dr. Knowles loves working with the helpful, highly skilled and organized team at Campbell River Veterinary Hospital. Her favourite part of every appointment is helping her clients find the right solution for their pets medical needs.
