Melissa Hemminger

Melissa Hemminger
Registered Veterinary Technologist

Both of Melissa’s parents worked in the human healthcare field, so she’s been interested in the medical sciences ever since her earliest days. Coupled with a lifelong adoration for the earth’s creatures, a career in the veterinary world simply made sense! Melissa is proud to help pets live happier, healthier lives on a daily basis as a Registered Veterinary.

Melissa grew up on a honey farm three hours southwest of Winnipeg, where she and her family kept everything from pigs, chickens, cats, and dogs, to hamsters, a guinea pig, and fish. She attended Red River College in Winnipeg to study in their Animal Health Technology course, even serving as Class President and graduating with honors. Shortly after her time in school, Melissa joined the Sage Creek Animal Hospital family—she’s been here ever since.

Medically, Melissa enjoys the challenges of placing IV lines and completing dental cleaning procedures. She never tires of hearing before-and-after stories of pets who have been revitalized after a thorough tooth cleaning! Melissa also likes discussing animal care techniques with pet owners.

In her time away from work, Melissa can be found baking and decorating cakes and cupcakes, cheering on her beloved Winnipeg Jets, and spending time at home with her boyfriend and their cat, Maple. Maple even has her own Jets holiday sweater!
