Gold-level cat-friendly clinic (CFC) accreditation awarded by the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM).

ISFM launched the cat-friendly clinic initiative to encourage veterinary clinics to make changes to improve the welfare of cats in their care. The programme advises practices on how to make their environment as welcoming as possible for cats; how to reduce the stress of veterinary visits for cats, as well as providing support in team training, handling techniques and cat-specific client care.

We are so pleased to be awarded this prestigious award for our high-quality care for cats.

With our new clinic areas we have a dedicated light and airy cat ward as well as a separate cat waiting area in our reception, dedicated cat consultation and treatment rooms.

Each of our lovely new cat condos has a castle for the cats to feel safe, lots of soft comfy bedding as well as toys! 

Nikki Hammond, one of our Lead nurses who is also our Cat Advocate lead said “I am delighted that we have become a Gold accredited, cat friendly practice.  Our goal was to be able to provide the best possible care and experience for our feline patients. It’s a wonderful achievement for our team and something we are really excited to share with everyone!”

We also offer advice on our website about transporting cats to and from the clinic, giving medications and making sure that our feline friends are as relaxed as possible when they come to us.
