Dr. Melissa Tolson, CFV


Dr. Tolson was born in Long Island, New York, and grew up in Connecticut. She earned her undergraduate degree at Florida State University, went on to graduate from Ross University of Veterinary Medicine with her DVM degree, and then returned to sunny Flordia to practice. Dr. Tolson has always loved animals—before attending veterinary school, she worked as both a kennel attendant and a veterinary technician. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, relaxing at the beach or pool, and spending time with family and friends. Her fur family includes mini Australian shepherds Blue and Kai, and cats Chloe and Sammie.
