WHY BRING YOUR CAT TO US
OUR PLEDGE TO CLIENTS
We believe the medicine we practice here is the best you'll find anywhere. That's also why a visit here is like walking into a good friend's home. We want to provide a comfortable environment for your cat -- and for you -- with the same kind of care and attention you give him. Our clients expect the finest in veterinary medicine and care. Our efficient, professional, friendly staff makes sure you're never disappointed.
MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER
We take a different approach. At The Cat Doctor, we practice preventative medicine, not crisis medicine. The idea is, if we can diagnosis a disease before the patient is sick, it’s often much easier and less costly to treat-and the prognosis is much better!
MEET OUR STAFF
Dr. Weigner often is asked, "Why do you specialize in cats?" His response: "Maybe, like a cat, it's my natural curiosity. There just isn't a whole lot known about feline medicine; it's still in its infancy. In veterinary school, we were taught to treat cats as 'small dogs'. They now know that's just not true."
Dr. Alison Bradbury, DVM
As a third generation veterinarian, Dr. Bradbury knew from an early age that animals were her passion. After years of working with rural veterinarians in South Georgia, the big cats at Zoo Atlanta, and the staff at The Cat Doctor, Dr. Bradbury discovered her true calling in the field of Feline Specialty medicine. When she isn't working, Dr. Bradbury enjoys gardening, baking, and relaxing at home with her husband, their daughter and three cats. "I am very fortunate to work in a profession that I truly love. The staff, clients and their cats are like family to me, and returning to The Cat Doctor is like coming home."
Abby Shively, Practice Manager
Abby joined The Cat Doctor in 2006, after graduating from Florida State University, but her veterinary career began in high school as a kennel assistant in her native Orlando, Florida. Abby comes from a long line of animal lovers, as her parents own an animal healthcare company. Since then she's moved up the ranks to become our Practice Manager.
"Cats are our best friends, our confidants, and our family. They deserve medical care that values their importance in our lives. I can't imagine working for a place that better serves their needs and the needs of their special humans!" When not at The Cat Doctor, Abby enjoys spending time with her family, their two cats Fionna and Olive, and their dog Nina.
