EVC Cat Friendly Clinic

Cat Friendly Clinic

What is a Cat Friendly Clinic?

Our Deputy Head Nurse Mellissa Amies is our dedicated Cat Advocate having attained ISFM feline friendly status for the practice.
As a cat friendly clinic we understand that there are unique difficulties in bringing your cat to the Vets such 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
