Information for cat owners

We recognise that because of their unique nature and needs, taking cats to veterinary clinics can be very stressful, both for cats and caregivers. The Cat Friendly Clinic programme is designed to help address these issues by creating more cat friendly veterinary clinics, reducing stress for cats and making veterinary visits easier for caregivers. Reducing stress can also improve diagnosis and treatment, improving cat health.

Set up by International Cat Care with its veterinary division the International Society of Feline Medicine this programme is transforming the way in which cats are treated in veterinary clinics across the globe.
