Cat Clinic of Destin Veterinary Staff
Our doctors and veterinary staff are dedicated and passionate animal lovers who place your pet’s health and well-being above anything else!
Dorothy V. Flynn, DVM
Dr. Flynn loves her job! She was thrilled to start her first practice in Destin in April of 2000. She decided on a feline-only veterinary hospital because she thought the idea of giving cats their own facility made so much sense. She loves cats AND dogs, but knew that her calling was in providing a unique experience for cats and their owners.
She graduated from The University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine in 1982. Dr. Flynn attends at least two continuing education conferences annually, concentrating solely on the current advances in feline veterinary medicine. She gives back to her community by working closely with Feline Friends of Destin and other rescue groups.
Dr. Flynn is a proud sponsor of Compassion International. She has supported twin boys in Ethiopia since 2004, and a little girl in Nicaragua since 2013. In her free time, she enjoys long walks along our beautiful coastline, attending Bible Study, but loves to spend time with her grandsons most of all!
Brooklyn Flaherty, DVM, MPH
I’m originally from Kentucky, completing my undergraduate degree at University of Kentucky in Animal Science. I’m a 2020 DVM graduate of Auburn University, with a special interest in Feline Medicine (of which I founded and ran the student chapter of AAFP during my time there). I also completed my Masters of Public Health at UAB this past Spring (2021). My career passions include dentistry, ultrasound, and all things preventative care. I share my home with my three very affectionate and vocal cats: Sofie, Mira, and Hallow; my adorable son Barron and my loving husband Justin. My hobbies include hiking, painting, writing, and spending time with close family and friends.
