Melodee later completed her Veterinary Degree from Western University of Health Sciences, Pomona.
As a veterinary student, Melodee was highly involved with the student chapter of American Association of Equine Practitioners and had the opportunity to travel extensively to a wide variety of well-known and respected veterinary clinics throughout the US and Europe. One of many unique experiences during these trips includes assisting the veterinary committee with the Palio di Siena, one of the oldest horse races in the world dating back to 1656.
Dr. Ingram completed a general practice internship at Steinbeck Country Equine Clinic in Salinas, CA after graduation. Here she developed a wide variety of skills in all areas of veterinary medicine ranging from emergency and critical care, internal medicine, orthopedics, and radiology.
