"Dr. Neely, I feel I must take a moment to thank you & tell you
how very much appreciated you are. Before I found your website here, I
tried in vain searching the internet to find someone who would answer a
few concerns I had about my kitties without charging me what I consider
to be a lot of money for 30 seconds of their time. Every penny counts in
this economy. You are the only Cat Doctor I've found who gives of
yourself this way & I can't thank you enough for your kindness &
generosity. I don't know you & will likely never have the honor of
meeting you, but it's obvious to me you are a wonderful person.
Again, I thank you! And my kitties thank you (Lovie, Leah, Lily, Flower, Zaphod, C.C., Beau Beau & Spencer. All rescues)."
The cat is a species that has many unique characteristics. A cat is NOT a small dog. When you want information about cats, their behavior, their illnesses, the medications that are safe for them, advice as to whether it's time to rush to the vet or not and much, much more, you want that information from an experienced, knowledgeable cat expert. And that's what this website offers you.
Hi, I'm Dr. Neely and I have been a feline veterinarian for over 20 years and have the education and experience to help you figure out what is going on when you are worried about your cat. I also have the compassion and understanding that comes from a lifetime of being a cat parent before I became a vet. I was born loving cats and have never spent a moment of my life without them.
I had many experiences before becoming a cat vet that involved one or more of my own kitties suffering from cat illnesses. I know what it’s like to love your kitty and feel sad and scared when he isn’t feeling well. I've lived with cats that suffered from feline inflammatory bowel syndrome, feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), feline kidney disease, FIP, cat thyroid problems, feline food allergies, cat diabetes, feline acne, and cat eye infections.
I had to learn about feline leukemia symptoms, feline herpes treatment, feline bad breath and a host of other cat care issues from newborn kitten care to elderly cat health problems.
And that was all before I even thought of going to veterinary school! Of course, along with those more serious cat problems, I also lived with many of the everyday type of cat health conditions that can arise. Cat behavior problems, cat vomiting, cat diarrhea, feline sneezing …you name it, I can almost guarantee that I lived with it at some point.
This is why I know how you feel and why this website can help you. I want to help you and the cat you love by sharing my experience and education with you. I am passionate about helping cat owners know the signs of cat illnesses so that early detection of feline diseases and better outcomes are possible.
about my education and experience.
"Hi, Dr. Neely, Thank you! And by the way, your response to the
lady who has a cat with thyroid problems and no money was really
helpful! You covered every possible corner!! You’re a gem! I’m glad
I know you." Sandi
