Oak Leaf Mobile Veterinary Services was started in 2021 by Dr. Melissa Finke with a mission to provide quality care for dogs and cats in the low stress comfort of their own homes.

 

Dr. Finke grew up on Long Island, New York but followed her family on a move to Georgia after her high school graduation. She has been here ever since. Having earned her undergrad degree from the University of Georgia, she followed that with a veterinary degree from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999.

 

For the next 22 years, Dr. Finke worked in traditional veterinary practices focused on medicine, surgery and preventative care. Her last 13 years were spent in a busy 24 hour hospital where she also honed her skills as an emergency practitioner. Dr. Finke realized that there was an unmet need for some clients and patients.  She knew that there was a better way to practice quality preventative care and management of chronic illnesses that could also reduce the stresses associated with bringing our patients into an unfamiliar building. And so began Oak Leaf Mobile Veterinary Services. And Dr. Finke found herself a second career as a housecall veterinarian.

Dr. Finke and her family are residents of Hamilton Mill and have two rescued French bulldogs named Moxie and Archie. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, horseback riding, binge watching HGTV and cheering on her son from the sidelines of his soccer games.
