Cat Friendly Practices® have proven they take specific extra steps to assure they understand a cat’s unique needs and implement feline-friendly standards.
Here are some specific ways you and your cat can benefit from visiting a Cat Friendly Practice®:
1) More Pleasant Veterinary Visits
Each Cat Friendly Practice® makes an effort to have a calming environment. This includes a waiting area or experience that reduces stress associated with other pets, or unfamiliar smells.
2) Reduce the Stress
Cat Friendly Practices® can also help advise you on ways to reduce stress before and after the veterinary visit.
3) Highly-Knowledgeable Veterinary Staff
Veterinary teams are skilled at understanding subtle signs of sickness and pain, and the individualized needs of cats including feline-specific facial and behavioral cues.
4) Feline-friendly Environment
Many Cat Friendly Practices® have a feline-only examination room that provides a safe, non-threatening area where cats can be examined calmly and effectively.
