Dr. Glen Melton
Dr. Glen Melton knew he wanted to become a veterinarian at a very young age interacting with many different species of animals from childhood on. He became a veterinarian in 1977, after earning his DVM from LSU School of Veterinary Medicine as a member of the very first graduating class. Now, he loves interacting with the other doctors, staff members, and especially developing relationships with clients as he delivers animal healthcare. He also loves seeing the strength of the human/animal bond every day and playing a role in that bond. After seeing nearly half a million cases throughout his 30+ years as a veterinarian, not a day goes by that he doesn’t learn something new or see something exciting.
He is married with two daughters and four wonderful grandchildren. His pets are Mullins Feists, Nanner and Puddin, and a black schnauzer named Millie. In his spare time, he enjoys everything outdoors, spending time with family, and traveling. A particular passion of his is forestry, growing trees, and growing vegetables in his two-acre garden and growing roses. He also enjoys being part of a local community and giving back in community service, including at his church, where he also enjoys developing relationships. He is also an avid LSU fan and attends as many games as possible.
