Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Rachael Keller, DVM is our newest addition to the Fancy Paws Cat Clinic family. She graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Keller belongs to the Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) as well as the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

Dr. Keller has dedicated her career to improving the care of her feline patients.  She has two cats of her own named, Monster and MooMoo, so she truly understands the unique needs of cats.

Dr. Keller is focused on making every veterinary visit as calming and comforting for your cat as possible. In her previous practice, she created and successfully implemented new protocols for reduced-stress cat handling. Through her knowledge of feline behavior, she was able to significantly increase the comfort of her patients.

Dr. Keller has worked extensively with both cats and dogs, but has a special place in her heart for felines. She is competent with general surgeries and has a specific focus on dental care. She enjoys educating our clients and client communication. Dr. Keller is pictured here holding Riddick, a prior patient of hers. She was instrumental to her previous practice and we are lucky to have her as part of our team.

Thomas Jones, DVM is the Hospital Administrator at both Fancy Paws Cat Clinic and our sister hospital, Ashburn Veterinary Hospital.  He is a 1978 graduate of the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine and has spent his years since in both small animal general and emergency practice.  After leaving his emergency practice in Richmond, he moved back to the Northern Virginia area and started the Ashburn Veterinary Hospital in 1994.

Dr. Jones had a vision to create a hospital that would provide a safe, quiet environment specifically for feline patients.  That dream came true in 2007 and has grown into a very unique practice.  He is excited to provide a service to feline patients and owners that the general practice does not allow.

Throughout his career Dr. Jones has been active in local, state and national veterinary associations and a participant in the Virginia Tech Veterinary Student Mentoring Program, as well as a member of The American Animal Hospital Association, The American Veterinary Medical Association, and The American Association of Feline Practitioners.  To remain current on  research and changes in the field of veterinary medicine, he regularly pursues continuing education in a variety of disciplines.  Dr. Jones oversees patient care and mentors new associates.  He lives with three feline companions of his own, one named Tapio, is pictured here.
