Doris Cato, DVM


Dr. Doris Cato is one of our Co-Chiefs of Staff and another of our Royston Animal Hospital co-founders in 1983. She is from Powder Springs, GA and currently resides in Lavonia, GA. Dr. Cato received an undergraduate degree and earned a DVM degree from the University of Georgia. Her special interests include all aspects of small animal medicine.

Dr. Cato shares her home with two dogs and two cats. Away from work, she enjoys hiking with her husband and dogs, paddle boarding with the pups, gardening, traveling, and volunteering at her local animal shelter.

Dr. Cato is so thankful that she gets to practice in such a beautiful area with people that she loves and respects. We share the laughter and the tears that comes with this profession while striving to provide the best care we can for our patients. She is especially thankful that I have been able to share this adventure with her husband and best friend, Dr. Ken Cato!
