Dr. Erik Ask
Dr. Erik Ask’s destiny as a feline only veterinarian was decided very early in life by his first Siamese cat, Flicka, as his crib was her preferred sleeping spot. Since those early months, Dr. Ask’s life has been cat oriented. His cat preferred life was made official in 2004 when he received his Degree in Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University. He has practiced feline exclusive medicine since graduation in several exceptional feline hospitals along the east coast. During this time, he had the unique opportunity to hone his feline medical & surgical skills and incorporate the latest veterinary technology into his medicine. He became the owner of Cats Only Veterinary Hospital in 2008. Dr. Erik Ask lives with three Siamese cats Cashew, Darwin & Bo-Pah.
