Cat Friendly Clinic

Cat friendly vet clinic

We understand that our feline friends have very different needs to dogs. Car journeys are not a regular part of their life and different sights, sounds, smells and handling add up to make even the routine vet visit a stressful experience.  We endeavour to make our service as cat friendly as possible:

Here’s how you can help:

  • Get your cat accustomed to their carrier – keep it out as part of the furniture and regularly feed your cat inside
  • Use a top opening carrier for easy handling in and out, and cover the top with a blanket to help hide strange sight, sounds and smells.
  • Handle the carrier gently, secure it well within your car and drive carefully
  • Use a pheromone spray or keep a piece of clothing which smells familiar inside the carrier
  • Wait in your car until your appointment time, or move to a corner of the waiting room with your cat carrier off the floor
