Dr. Cat McGinnis
Dr. Cat was born and raised in Decatur, Georgia. Throughout her life she had one goal, to become a veterinarian and own her own practice. In 2008, she graduated from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. During vet school she worked closely with both UGA V and UGA VI (the English bulldogs that are the university’s mascot). After graduation, she worked in a mixed animal practice in South Carolina for 2 years doing both small animal and equine medicine. However, the pull of her home town and a desire to be closer to her family led her to move back to Georgia in 2010. For the past few years she has been a relief veterinarian serving numerous clinics in the greater Atlanta area.
In January 2013, she decided that it was time to fulfill the second part of her life’s goal and purchase a veterinary practice. After having done relief work at AHAH for over a year, she knew this was the practice she wanted to buy. On May 30 2013, she purchased the practice from Dr. Dickler who was retiring. Dr. Cat is looking forward to continuing the tradition of compassionate, loving care for the patients of AHAH. She is also excited to bring in up-to-date technology such as digital radiology and ultrasound.
Dr. Cat enjoys spending time with her family and friends and hiking with her three dogs, a great dane named Josey and her two chihuahuas, Milo and Rita. Clients will often see Dr. Cat’s dogs peeking out from her office door, as they love to accompany their mommy to work.
