Benefits of Cat Friendly Practices®

When designated as a Cat Friendly Practice®, selected veterinary clinics 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®:   

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.
Cat Friendly Practices® can also help advise you on ways to reduce stress before and after the veterinary visit.

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.

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.
