What is a Cat Friendly clinic?

We understand that there are unique difficulties in bringing your cat to the Vets as ...

  • Cats often do not travel well and feel unsafe away from home.
  • They are highly sensitive to new sights, sounds and smells.
  • Most cats prefer quiet and solitude and are highly susceptible to stress.
  • Most cats are highly stressed by nearby dogs in the clinic.
  • Cats need to be handled gently and with respect in the clinic

As a Silver accredited Cat Friendly Clinic we have reached a higher standard of cat care in that our staff

  • Understand the needs of cats and have made visits to us more cat friendly
  • Understand how to approach and handle cats gently and with care.
  • Have good knowledge and equipment to manage the care of cats.

Our Cat Advocates are 

Mellissa Amies RVN and Debbie Phillips GradDipVN, RVN, ISFMCertFN
