The Cat Doctor

Welcome to The Cat Doctor! We have missed seeing you. To keep everyone safe, our leadership team has decided to go back to curbside appointments. Remember while you are here, everyone is required to wear a properly fitting mask even if you are fully vaccinated. Our Doctors are happy to discuss findings and recommendations with you after they have examined your cat by phone. We ask that you continue to fill out our "Patient Intake Form". These forms are located on the black bench by our front door or here under "Forms". Our appointment times are still being affected by the unprecedented year the veterinary industry has experienced. Please use patience, kindness, and allow us more time in your schedule. It is helpful when you can arrive on time or better yet 10 minutes early to your appointment. Please label your carrier with your cat's name and your last name. 

Thank you for your patience and support during this time.

  • 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.
