Providing an outstandinglevel of health care forour animal patients.

Dr. Martha Mellish

I am a 2005 graduate of the Atlantic Veterinary College. I became Board Certified with the American College of Theriogenologists in 2013. This is a specialty in animal reproduction.

As a part of the Theriogenology and Ambulatory Equine Services I provide equine reproduction and ambulatory services. These include breeding mares with fresh, shipped and frozen semen, embryo transfer and stallion semen collection. Farm calls as well as in-hospital services are offered for equines in PEI and NB.

I am an avid dressage rider and part of my parent’s Dutch Warmblood breeding operation. I also enjoy gardening and working out. I live in Mt Stewart with my husband, two children and our Corgi named Spud!
