Information for vets and nurses
Cat Friendly Clinic is an accreditation programme, run by the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM), which has been developed to raise the standards of care and welfare of cats in the veterinary clinic, and to provide veterinarians with practical solutions to problems that they often face when dealing with their feline patients. In addition, the programme is designed to boost business by strengthening the bond between the clinic and its feline clients.
The programme currently has over 2000 clinics worldwide with hundreds more seeking accreditation. This includes clinics in North and South America where the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) license the programme from ISFM, as Cat Friendly Practice.
Becoming cat friendly has never been easier or more achievable. On this site you will find extensive resources to help, inspire and guide you through all aspects of the programme, and with three levels of accreditation, there really is something for everyone.
