What to Expect From a Cat Friendly Practice:
• Skilled staff—Within a Cat Friendly Practice®, clients will find that the staff is well-versed in feline-friendly handling techniques and can expertly treat frightened cats. Furthermore, the staff is well-trained in alternate techniques to calm an anxious cat and ensure that examinations and procedures do not escalate anxiety.
• Individualized health care plan—As with humans, health issues change as aging occurs. The practice will create a health care plan that is specific to your cat. Regular exams can help avoid medical emergencies since veterinarians can often detect conditions or diseases that may affect your cat’s health long before they become significant, painful, or more costly to treat.
• Low-stress environment—One obvious advantage of a CFP is a physical environment that is all about the cat including special waiting areas or waiting accommodations, feline-sensitive examination rooms and hospital facilities, and equipment specifically designed for cats. Other areas that are vetted for cat safety and comfort include the operating room and anesthesia, diagnostic imaging, laboratory facilities, and dentistry.
