Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of a cat-only practice?

A cat friendly environment.

Cat-only veterinary clinics pay close attention to air circulation, which keeps other cats’ smells and odors at bay. They also have relatively low noise levels since there are no barking dogs or other noisy animals to cause extra anxiety. Synthetic pheromone diffusers help reduce stress by mimicking the facial pheromone cats produce naturally and are often also used. Anxiety and stress may also alter the results of certain medical tests, so a cat-only clinic may help with obtaining more accurate lab values.

Veterinarians, nurses, and staff have cat-specific training.

The staff at a cat-only clinic will be well-versed in feline body language, behavior, and handling techniques. A cat whose subtle language is being understood and respected will be less anxious.

Up-to-date feline-specific techniques.

There are new studies, techniques, tools, and resources being made available constantly. Staff at a clinic devoted to cats will be more able to keep up with the latest news and technology, which can benefit your cat’s health and happiness.

What is a Cat Friendly Practice?

Created by experienced feline practitioners, the Cat Friendly Practice (CFP) Program is the leading worldwide movement to make veterinary care less stressful for cats and their caregivers. Established by the American Association of Feline Practitioners and the International Society for Feline Medicine, CFP is a global initiative to elevate care for cats by enhancing their environment and experience, as well as reducing stress for the cat and caregiver.
