Purrfect Care: Designed for cats!
Dr. Janet K. Cohn opened Purrfect Care Feline Medical Center in 2015 to fulfill a niche for top quality feline medical care with a softer touch. Our staff and facilities are dedicated to providing the ultimate in cat care and comfort.
Come visit our hospital in Grandview and you will see what sets us apart from other vets:
- In our waiting area we have comfortable furniture and tables to place your cat carriers on so your cat is off the ground.
- Our exam rooms feature multiple feline-friendly platforms so your cat can choose where s/he is most comfortable being examined (no stainless steel tables here!).
- Our treatment area has cages with heated floors for your cat’s comfort and quicker recovery from anesthesia.
- We offer in-home care through our house call service for those cats or families who would find this less stressful or more convenient.
- We are ranked by the AAFP (American Association of Feline Practitioners) as a Gold Level Cat Friendly Practice, which is the highest level a veterinary practice can achieve.
As you can see, a great deal of thought has gone into what we can do to make you and your cat feel at home.
Janet K. Cohn, DVM
Board-Certified in Feline Medicine with over 20 years experience as a cat specialist
Dr. Janet Cohn has wanted to be a veterinarian since she was a child, doctoring to all the injured critters in the neighborhood, and caring for a wide variety of pets from goldfish to a dog. She never parented a cat until she was in graduate school when she adopted Sampson, a long-haired orange tabby from a humane society in Boston. Sampson completely converted Dr. Cohn into a cat fanatic, and to this day she has a deep fondness for orange tabby males.
Dr. Cohn obtained her undergraduate degree in Biology from Cornell University, a Masters degree in Biology from MIT, and her DVM degree in 1994 from the Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. In January of 2000, she became board-certified in feline medicine by the American Board of Feline Practitioners, emphasizing her knowledge of and interest in cats.
After over 20 years as an associate in feline practice, Dr. Cohn was inspired to open Purrfect Care Feline Medical Center to allow her to express her ideas and personality, to meet the new challenges of being a practice owner, and to fulfill a niche for top quality feline medical care with a softer touch. Our staff and facilities are dedicated to providing the ultimate in cat care and comfort.
Allison L. Hagley, DVM
Dr. Allison L. Hagley received both her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from The Ohio State University, and worked in small animal general practice before deciding that cats were her favorite patients and joining the Purrfect Care team. Her favorite aspects of veterinary medicine include nutrition, preventive care, and behavior, particularly management of feline idiopathic cystitis, and she loves using a variety of methods to ease the fear of cats who are anxious during vet visits. Dr. Hagley and her husband Jonathan share their home with a one-eyed tabby cat named Una (pictured), and also periodically foster greyhounds who have retired from racing. In her free time, you can find her watching hockey, trying new restaurants, camping, and playing board games.
Emily Tanner, DVM
Dr. Emily K. Tanner has been a friend of felines since she was very young, growing up around cats. She received her Bachelor’s degree in microbiology and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Auburn University. She knew that working with cats was her calling, bringing her to join the Purrfect Care team. Dr. Tanner has had Tigger (pictured) for over 19 years, and she also has a grey tabby named Periwinkle that she rescued during vet school. Her favorite part of veterinary medicine is partnering with clients to help their cats lead happier, healthier lives, and strengthening their human-animal bond. Outside of veterinary medicine, she enjoys cooking and baking, going to musicals, and gardening.
