Cindy McManis, DVM, Diplomate ABVP (Feline)
Dr. Cynthia McManis received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Texas A&M University in 1985. She developed her interest in cats during her first year post-graduation. Little was known about cats at this time and they were treated like small dogs. She began to actively pursue more education and information regarding feline health care and joined the Academy of Feline Medicine in 1989. When the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners approved feline practice as a specialty board in 1995, she was in the first class to sit for the exam. Currently, she is 1 of only 70 ABVP certified feline practitioners in the world. Dr. McManis founded Just Cats Veterinary Services in 1994.
Outside of her clinic cases, she is a feline internal medicine consultant for Veterinary Information Network, a web based resource for veterinarians all over the world. She established an ABVP residency site at Just Cats in 2008 and mentors new graduates as well as seasoned practitioners who are interested in achieving ABVP certification.
Dr. McManis enjoys training and racing triathlons and has completed 5 Ironman events as well as many half irons and shorter distances. She also loves medical mystery novels, comedy films and challenging internal medicine cases. She is owned by 2 kitties - Amante ("Monty") and O'Malley at the hospital.

Dr. Krystal Dickinson, DVM
Dr. Krystal Dickinson was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. A lover of travel and new experiences, she ventured off to earn her undergraduate degree at Cornell University in Upstate New York. She then decided to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian, and moved to the Midwest to obtain her DVM at the University of Missouri. After graduation in 2015, Dr. Dickinson headed West and practiced small animal medicine in the golden state of California for close to 5 years. It has been almost 16 years since first leaving home, and she is overjoyed to finally be moving back to Texas and making the transition into feline only practice.
Dr. Dickinson has always had a passion for the health and well-being of cats, and focused both her research and externship experience in feline medicine during veterinary school. She is also a strong advocate for oral healthcare and comfort in cats, and has taken several continuing education courses in dentistry. She strives to make appointments as stress-free and comfortable as possible for her feline patients. Dr. Dickinson looks forward to serving all of the cats and their loving owners in The Woodlands.
In her spare time, Dr. Dickinson plans to explore all that Texas has to offer with her husband Adam. Together they traveled over 1,500 miles in the car with their three rescue pets--a quirky Pug-mix named Jack, the sweetest, old Basset Hound named Roo and a spunky kitty named Baby Cat who of course thinks she rules over them all.
