Welcome to Glendale Animal Hospital
Welcome Dr. Melissa Corson Thomas!
Dr. Melissa Corson Thomas joins the Glendale Animal Hospital family after seven years and several Banfield Pet Hospitals in the Chicagoland area, she served as Chief of Staff at the Banfield in Mount Prospect. She Graduated from St. George's University with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree after studying at Louisiana State University and Becker College in Massachusetts. Dr. Corson Thomas has worked in many different areas of veterinary medicine, including Zoo medicine, companion animal medicine, and humane society work. She also volunteered at an organization that trains monkeys to help humans with spinal cord injuries and other mobility impairments. Sea turtles, however, are her first passion. As you can tell, Dr. Corson Thomas has seen it all! With her extensive interest in exotic animals, she will be our "go-to" person for your exotic pet care needs.
Dr. Melissa has a very busy household! Her husband, Brian, and two children, Zachary (1 yr) and Emma Grace (4 yrs.), enjoy a menagerie of rescued pets including five mixed breed dogs, three turtles, one cat, and a parrot. One turtle is the 2nd largest species in North America and requires his own temperature and humidity controlled room! The Corson Family enjoys watching movies together in their spare time. And Dr. Corson's guilty pleasure is watching The Vampire Diaries.
We feel that Dr. Melissa Corson is a great fit for our practice with her diverse background with both companion animals and exotics. She is talented, wonderful, warm, and we are proud to add her to our team. If you are in the area feel free to stop by to meet her!
