Meet Our Staff

Mallory Clayton, DVM

Dr. Clayton graduated from Purdue University, College of Veterinary Medicine, with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Dr. Clayton has her sights set on becoming board certified in feline practice, and actively engages in cat-specific continuing education. She has earned the Cat Friendly Veterinarian Certificate from the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP), which demonstrates her commitment to advancing the standards of care for cats. Dr. Clayton credits her cream mackerel tabby, Finn, for her love of all things feline and has already adopted two more cats, Baloo and Ducky, since coming to the Cat Hospital in 2019. The rest of her zoo at home includes a rabbit, three chinchillas, and a husband. In her spare time, you may find Dr. Clayton playing board games, being “Aunt Smalmal” to her rambunctious nieces, working on never-ending home improvement projects, or channeling her inner cat with her ability to nap whenever, wherever.

Janine Siebert, DVM, MS, Diplomate, ABVP (Feline Practice)

Dr. Siebert is a Board-Certified Feline Specialist who has been practicing at the Cat Hospital since 1998.

Dr. Siebert is an avid pickleball player and proud grandma to EIGHT grandsons. Her pets include a redpoint domestic shorthair cat named Carlos and a border terrier named Vada.
