Dr. Raza was raised on a sugarcane, maize, cotton and wheat farm. It also had lots of animals like cows, buffalo, sheep, goats, pigeons, dogs and cats.

Upon completion he worked for the Government of Pakistan in the Livestock Department for eight years as a Veterinarian who tended to large and small animals. In 2005 he decided to move to Canada.

Ever since Melanie was a little girl she knew that she wanted to work with animals. She grew up with a house full of dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, birds and fish. After completing the Animal Care Program at Sheridan College she worked at a clinic in Toronto for 6 years. It was there that she realized she not only loved working with animals but also enjoyed getting to know their owners. From there she has worked in Mississauga, Burlington and now Stoney Creek. She took 3 years off to have a family and is now excited to be back to work doing what she loves. When she is not at her desk chatting with clients and making sure the hospital is running smoothly she is busy at home with her three babies, her husband, her two labs and 2 cats.
