Dr. Melinda Striyle


Growing up in Kansas City, Dr. Striyle knew she wanted a career helping animals. After graduation, she moved to Arizona and practiced in Lake Havasu City for three years before joining 43rd Avenue Animal Hospital in 1999.

Dr. Striyle has over 20 years of experience in small animal medicine, surgery, dentistry and team leadership. She is a strong advocate of education and regularly teaches team members and clients about veterinary medicine, thereby creating a win-win-win relationship between pet owners, pets and the veterinary health care team. She spends hundreds of hours every year in continuing education programs including self study, formal classes and veterinary conferences.

Dr. Striyle shares her home with a cat, two dogs, a son and her wonderful husband. Dr. Striyle enjoys many hobbies, including hiking, cooking and reading. Weather and time permitting, you’ll find her sailing, spending time with her son or doing home improvement projects around the house with her husband.
