Register for Cat Friendly Clinic materials and access the accreditation criteria and process
The Cat Friendly Clinic programme has been developed by ISFM as a global initiative and resource to help make veterinary clinics more welcoming to cats and cat clients, to reduce the stress of veterinary visits for cats, and to make treating and handling cats easier for veterinary staff.
Through the generosity and support of our commercial partners for the Cat Friendly Clinic programme (Boehringer Ingelheim, Ceva, Elanco, Zoetis and Royal Canin) we are able to provide further detailed resources to veterinary clinics at no additional cost. The Cat Friendly Clinic programme is open to any veterinary clinic that cares for feline patients. There are certain requirements regarding design, equipment and facilities within the clinic, and the standard of care for cats, which must all be met to achieve accreditation. Clinics are contacted every 3 years for reaccreditation and to confirm that the criteria are still being met.
There is NO COST to clinics for becoming accredited or for being part of the Cat Friendly Clinic programme, but a clinic must be an ISFM Practice Member to become accredited for which there is an annual fee.Register here
