What is a Cat Friendly Clinic?
An accredited Cat Friendly Clinic has reached a higher standard of cat care in that the staff:
- Understand the needs of cats and work continuously to make visits to the vet clinic more cat friendly and stress free
- Understand how to approach and handle cats using a gentle, fear-free approach
- Have good knowledge and equipment to manage the care of cats
- Achieving Cat Friendly Clinic accreditation involves all staff, from receptionists, nurses and technicians, through to vets. Each accredited clinic also has at least one ‘Cat Advocate’ – someone who ensures the cat friendly standards are adhered to, and who would be happy to talk to you.
