When not at work, Dr. Griffith enjoys hanging out with her family, playing sports, cooking, reading and spending time outdoors as much as possible. She and her husband are happily raising 3 children, 3 dogs, and 1 cat, so there is never a dull moment in their lives! Dr. Griffith purchased the Spay and Neuter Center of Southern Nevada from its founder, Dr. Brazil, in 2013, and is extremely excited to join such a high caliber team, offering affordable pet care solutions to the Las Vegas community. Melanie L. Brazil, DVM, has been practicing in Las Vegas for over 20 years. Dr. Brazil is a graduate of University of California at Davis and completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery in Sacramento, California. Dr. Brazil enjoys any outdoor activities and training for sprint triathlons. Her two cats allow her to live in their home along with her awesome Pomeranian mix dog named "Ringo". Melanie Brazil also has 2 two-legged "kids", Greg and Mark, described by her as the best sons in the entire world!! Dr. Brazil established the Spay & Neuter Center due to the high demand for such services in the Las Vegas area. After evaluating several spay and neuter facilites throughout Arizona and California, Dr. Brazil was able to combine the best aspects of each hospital. She developed a highly efficient operation that requires minimal overhead cost. This efficiency allows the Spay & Neuter Center to offer affordable services to the community. Despite selling the practice in 2013, Dr. Brazil continues to enthusiastically support the Spay & Neuter Center of Southern Nevada in a variety of roles.
