Dr. Turner

Dr. Melanie Turner has always had animals in her life; she started pet-sitting all of the neighborhood pets in middle school and started working at a veterinary clinic as a kennel worker in high school. Seeing
compassion and love shown towards animals at her first job, and appreciating the ever changing days and challenges, she knew she was destined to be a veterinarian.

Dr. Turner grew up in Blacksburg, Virginia and attended Virginia Tech for her undergraduate degree; she received a degree in Animal and Poultry Science in 2004. She continued on to get her Doctorate degree in 2008 from Virginia Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.

After growing up and going to school in the same small town, she made the decision to move across the country! She has been living in Boise since 2008 and hasn’t looked back. She loves getting to know her clients and helping them take great care of their furry family members. She especially enjoys performing dental work, managing dermatology cases, and helping people understand their animal’s behavior so that they can keep their pets happy and stress free. Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Turner enjoys staying active. Running is a big hobby and she is always training for a half marathon somewhere. She also rides her leopard appaloosa, Blue, and hikes and camps with her Australian shepherd, Darby, and her boxer, Edgar.

Dr. Susan Keller, VMD

Dr. Susan Keller was born and raised in northeastern Pennsylvania. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and psychology from Allegheny College, she moved to the great city of Philadelphia to pursue her veterinary degree.  While attending the University of
Pennsylvania, she took an interest in small animal medicine and critical care.  After graduation in 1996, Dr. Keller moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to complete a year-long post-graduate internship in emergency, trauma, and critical care.  Dr. Keller found that her critical care training transferred nicely to treating patients in a general practicesetting.

After eight years of emergency and general practice in Wisconsin, she and her husband, Patrick, moved to Sandpoint, Idaho to pursue veterinary medicine at their outdoor lifestyle in a great mountain town.  While in Sandpoint, the Keller family expanded to include a son Jack (2008) and a daughter Hazel (2010).  The time spent in Sandpoint was enjoyable, both professionally and personally. 

Areas of clinical interest include critical care, chronic pain management, allergic skin disease, surgery, and all aspects of internal medicine. Late in 2011, a career opportunity for Patrick brought the Keller Family to Boise.  She has enjoyed meeting new people and looks forward to building long relationships with her clients, patients, and co-workers. In her spare time, Dr. Keller enjoys skiing, cycling, tennis, quilting and spending lots of time with her young family.
