Cat Friendly Animal Hospital

What Makes an Animal Hospital Feline-Friendly?

Cat friendly practices must adhere several requirements to ensure that the staff and facility work well with felines. Outlined by the American Association of Feline Practitioners, also known as AAFP, these guidelines were made to ensure that your cats are stress-free and fear-free during each visit at an animal hospital. When you visit a feline-friendly facility, you can enjoy the following benefits for your pets.

    • Reduced stress and fear for your cats
    • A better understanding of feline health and wellness
    • Gentle care handling of your felines
    • Have equipment that works well with diagnosing and treating a condition in cats
    • Provides an environment that is cat friendly

Cats have unique needs. The sight and smell of other animals can put them on edge, making it difficult for the vet to safely conduct an examination. Additionally, cats often have very subtle symptoms and behavior changes that may indicate a disease. The staff at a feline-friendly practice has the training to recognize these signs and help you learn them, too. A cat friendly practice makes getting the best care for your cats simple and safe.
