About Melissa


Melissa Cook Veterinary physiotherapy offers a professional, friendly, mobile service. Working with you to provide the best care for your animal friend. Based in Broad Oak East Sussex.

I grew up in the countryside on our family farm, so I’ve always had a love and keen interest in all animals. From a young age, I realised that I wanted to work with animals so I went on to qualify as a Veterinary Nurse. I have travelled and worked as a Veterinary Nurse overseas. I worked in Africa at a wildlife rehabilitation sanctuary, assisting the Veterinary surgeons to rescue and rehabilitate animals such as lions, cheetah’s and monkeys.

I also, travelled and worked in Australia in Veterinary practices and spent some time working in the wildlife rehabilitation centre at the famous Australia Zoo. I also worked on several outback cattle stations, mustering cattle and looking after the horses. Having lived and worked in the countryside I have a good understanding of farming and country sports and the demand on working animals. I see many different types from pampered pooches to gundogs. I also have my own pets including a horse I enjoy hacking out and competing at local events such as dressage, hunter trials and more recently Trec competitions.


Melissa has an extremely professional and compassionate way. I highly recommend her.
