The Cat Doctor

WE ARE OPEN! However, our lobby is closed. For the health and safety of our clients, team members, and community we have closed our lobby. We are also limiting the number of patients we see daily. Our doctors are seeing patients by curbside service in our treatment room. Please call the office when you arrive for your appointment. During the exam the doctor will call you with findings and recommendations. We are all living in unprecedented times and your patience during this time is greatly appreciated. When you schedule an appointment, please print out our "Curbside Appointment Form" located here on our website under "Clinic Forms" and attach this form to your cat carrier prior to your arrival. Speaking of carriers, please have your carrier clearly labeled with your cat's name and your last name. When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, please call us and we will give you further instructions. Please note appointment times can take longer than normal. Again your patience during this pandemic is really appreciated. Once we are all finished a reception team member will call you and all payments can be made via credit card directly over the phone. Thank you for all your patience and support during this time. -The Cat Doctor Team

  • Dr. Megan Thomas



    Dr. Megan is special to us in so many ways. First, she was Dr. Tracy’s best friend. As a matter of fact, they both went to UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and graduated the same day. Together Dr. Tracy and Dr. Megan have shared a close friendship for 35 years.

    As a Southern California native, Dr. Megan started her veterinary career in equine medicine. She spent six years working full-time at southern California racetracks. Then Dr. Megan spent a year in Washington State working as a full-time small animal emergency veterinarian. In 1993 she moved back to southern California and continued to work on small animals. Dr. Megan has always had a special interest in feline medicine. In addition, she has advanced training in ultrasound and dentistry.

    In her free time, Dr. Megan enjoys a good book and card games. She is owned by 2 cats, Geordie and Barnaby.

  • Jennifer Ries, Practice Manager


    Jennifer has worked in veterinary medicine since she was 18 years old and has been with The Cat Doctor & Friends since 1999. 

    Jennifer's family consists of her longtime partner, a daughter, 3 step kids (they're adults now), a dog named "Zero", a bird and 4 cats. All of her cats and her dog are rescues and she is partial to the siamese cat. Her first cat was a long haired flame point siamese named "Sage". 

    In her free time, she enjoys gardening, arts and crafts.  A long time ago she studied interior design at Mission College and felt she would go into that field but veterinary medicine was just too interesting for her. Everyday in veterinary medicine is met with challenges, new information, and sometimes new beginnings. There is never a dull day in veterinary medicine.
