We are delighted to have been awarded our Cat Friendly Silver Status for 2020! Cat Friendly Clinic accreditation means the ISFM agree that we are committed to delivering high standards of feline care, with compassion and expertise.
Our cat friendly waiting areas and hospitalisation facilities are specifically geared towards the reduction of stress and all our staff are trained in gentle handling techniques. We can also give you advice on how to provide the best home care and environment for your kitty friends, meeting all their specific needs so they feel happy, relaxed and live long and healthy lives.
The International Society of Feline Medicine launched the Cat Friendly Clinic initiative to encourage veterinary clinics everywhere to make best efforts to improve the welfare of cats in their care. The programme advises clinics on how we can make our practice as welcoming to cats as possible, as well as providing support in staff training, handling techniques and cat-specific client care.
Leanne, our head nurse is our dedicated Cat Advocate; she oversees all of our feline friendly policies and ensures we are meeting the required high standards.
