We are proud to hold a Cat Friendly Practice Gold certification by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. This certification means we have gone above and beyond to make a visit to our hospital stress-free for you and your cat. We have an exam room dedicated to only cats, we use pheromones to help calm our kitties while they are here and we use gentle handling techniques to reduce stress. We also keep cats separated if they are hospitalized or staying with us for the day!
In the United States, there are 86 Million Owned Cats and 78 Million Owned Dogs. And yet, almost twice as many cats than dogs NEVER visit the veterinarian. This statistic is sad, however not surprising, considering that 60% of cat owners report that their cat hates going to the veterinarian.
Many cat owners are stressed even thinking about a trip to the vet with their feline friend. The cat-friendly practice program works to resolve this problem by making veterinary visits with your cat a much less harrowing experience.
