In the UK we love cats and they are becoming more and more popular with us seeing ‘house cats’ as the norm rather than a rarity. Our feline friends can live well into their teens and even early 20’s. Whether they’re young kittens, or older, more gentile kitties, we’re here to help you share a healthy and happy life with them.
Fun cat fact: Cats can jump five times their heightBook appointment
We are so proud, that in March 2021, just four months after opening on 30 November 2020, we have achieved silver status accreditation as a Cat Friendly Clinic (CFC)
This internationally recognised CFC programme has been developed by the International Society of Feline Medicine, the veterinary division of the leading feline charity International Cat Care.
It’s all about creating a world where all cats are treated with care, compassion and understanding.
During the planning stages for the layout of our building, it was important to us that this included separate calming areas for cats. Knowing how stressful a visit to the vets can be for cats, we knew it was important to incorporate a separate designated cat waiting area and always have blankets to cover carriers with a spritz of Feliway (a calming pheromone).
We are proud to have state of the art Casco kenneling – no bars in sight – in a separate hospitalisation ward. The high-tech kennels have individual heat pads, mood lighting and can be made bigger or smaller to suit the needs of each individual patient.
We had to prove rigorous adherence to a set of criteria including provision of facilities and demonstration of staff activities and attitudes aimed at reducing stress in cats, both as in-patients and out-patients. This includes having separate dog and cat waiting areas, feline-friendly hospitalisation cages, and veterinary equipment specifically for treating cats.
Most importantly, all our team are encouraged to approach and handle cats sensitively and respectfully.
We will soon be launching a range of more detailed articles on different care needs your pet may have. You will be able to find those here, so keep your eyes peeled.
We’re always here to help, so if there’s something specific you’d like to know, get in touch and we’ll do our best to answer your query.
