Dr. Brittany Cacciottoli
Dr. Cacciottoli graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 2013. As a student, she gained experience with several of the top feline veterinarians across the country and honed her knowledge and expertise in feline medicine and surgery. Shortly before graduation she was given the Stuart Clark-Price Memorial Feline Compassion Award that is given to the senior student that has demonstrated the most compassion and care towards feline patients. She started out as a small animal vet in Dayton, Ohio, but her long time passion for cats drove her to pursue feline only practice. As a native to the St. Louis area, the Cat Clinic was a perfect fit and she joined the clinic in June 2014. In January 2017, she purchased the clinic from Dr. Williams. When she is not at the Cat Clinic, she enjoys spending time at home with her husband, 2 kids, and 6 wonderful cats.
