Cat Friendly Practice®

According to Cat Friendly, the Cat Friendly Practice® program is a global initiative designed to elevate care for cats by reducing stress and making visits easier for cats and caregivers. This is accomplished by supporting the veterinary team so the entire staff is educated and knowledgeable about your cats’ distinct needs and behaviors. Cat Friendly Practice® is a program that was designed by the American Association of Feline Practitioners to help improve care for cats at their veterinarian office.
