Dr. Jenny Ault, Veterinarian, with her cat Chester
I grew up in northwest Indiana near Chicago but have always wanted to be in the Rockies. That opportunity came in 2013 when I took over ownership of Cats on Broadway. Before purchasing Cats and moving to Missoula, I worked in Indiana treating dogs, cats, and exotics. I have always enjoyed working with cats, but it was not until I started working with them exclusively that I came to understand how truly special and unique they really are. Every day they teach me something new. In my personal life, I am happily married and have 2 small boys. My animal family consists of 2 cats named Bounce and Chester and a tortoise named Taco. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, hiking, and biking.
Dr. Jenny earned her Bachelor’s degree in Science (Biology) from Purdue University in 1997 and her Master’s degree in Science (Biology) from Purdue University in 1999. She obtained her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from St. George’s University in 2004.
Dr. Jenny continues the care and compassion that her predecessors started over 20 years ago and is dedicated to continually improving the level of care given at Cats. Her medical interests include preventative medicine, alternative therapies, and wound care. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) and the Montana Veterinary Medical Association (MVMA). She is working on obtaining her Board Certification in Feline Medicine.
Chester is 16 years old. He was given up by his original owner at 3 years old due to uncontrollable urine, stool, and vomiting issues. Once his diet was corrected and his anxiety issues were resolved, he improved dramatically. Chester is now a happy, old-man cat that loves his breakfasts and dinners, lounges around the house, and tolerates his “adopted sister” Bounce the Cat (not pictured.)
