Cat Friendly Clinics

Cat Friendly Clinics

  • We are aware that our feline patients have unique needs and are dedicated to making our clinics more ‘cat friendly’.
  • These ‘cat friendly clinics’ have been devised to reduce the anxiety associated with coming to our clinics for both cat and owner.   We will be providing a calm waiting area, free from other species and free from unpleasant odours.
  • Feliway diffusers will be used which emit a calming pheromone to help cats relax.   
  • All our staff approach and handle cats in a gentle, empathetic and caring manner.
  • Our hospitalisation facilities aim to minimise stress by providing roomy accommodation with access to hiding places and perches (where appropriate).   We provide lots of cosy bedding for cats to snuggle in so they will feels safe and more relaxed.

Tips On Bringing Your Cat To The Vet

Cat Friendly Clinics
 Always use a cat carrier and try to choose one that is sturdy and secure.   

Try to leave the carrier in a room where your cat spends a lot of time.   Place familiar bedding/ treats/ toys in the carrier and hopefully your cat will enter the carrier voluntarily.

Consider use of synthetic feline facial pheromone analog (Feliway®) spray in the carrier at least 30 minutes prior
to transport to help calm  the cat.   Please ask our staff about more details on this product.

Ideally secure the carrier with a seat belt in the car to avoid your cat being tossed about on the journey.   If your cat likes to hide consider covering the carrier with a towel/ blanket.   Always place familiar bedding in the carrier to help your cat feel more secure.

Try to stay calm yourself.   If you are anxious your cat will sense this and may in turn become fearful.
