Certified Cat Friendly Practice

We are committed to providing the highest quality of veterinary care. However, we recognize that visits to the hospital can be quite stressful for some pets. Therefore, we are proud to announce our participation and certification in global initiative to elevate care by reducing stress for our patients and their caregivers. We work with the AAFP to implement protocols required to be a certified Cat-Friendly Practice ™.

To create a stress-free environment, we combine the use of anti-anxiety medications, calming pheromones, gentle handling, and modifications to the hospital environment.
