Dr. Janet Figarra is a 1988 graduate of Michigan State University. She practiced small animal medicine and surgery at the Ann Arbor Animal Hospital for 31 years before purchasing the Ann Arbor Cat Clinic in 2019. Her passion is for soft tissue surgery and we have had plenty to keep her busy with ear polyps, mass removals, abdominal exploratories and, via our foster program, sooo many sterilizations. Raised with her 12 siblings on a produce farm in Superior Township, Dr. Figarra is a lifelong area resident. Her love of animals grew with her experiences raising and showing animals in 4-H. She was a Washtenaw County 4-H leader for 16 years and mentored students through the Ann Arbor Public School Health Profession Program for 30 years. Dr. Figarra lives in Ypsilanti Township where her family runs a greenhouse. They have a myriad of pets including horses, goats, poultry, dogs and, of course, the ruler of their farm, Boris the cat.
