Dr. Mahanes graduated from the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 1988 and began her career in the small animal veterinary field. However, after five years of working practices where dogs were interspersed with cats, she felt a need to create a “Quiet Alternative” for our feline friends.
In May of 1993, the doors of Charlottesville Cat Care Clinic proudly opened to serve the public as the only feline-specific practice in the area. Catering to our purr-fect companions came naturally for Dr. Mahanes and her staff. She expanded the Clinic in 2003 in order to meet the needs of her clients and patients.
Today the Clinic is equipped to handle not only hospital patients but also provide that home away from home for kitties in the form of overnight boarding services.
