Cat Friendly Practice
Your Pet’s Wellness is a Silver Standard Cat Friendly Practice certified by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP)! This means that not only do we have designated “Cat Advocates” on staff, but the hospital itself has met a list of criteria to be considered Cat Friendly in several areas, including:
- Staff training and education
- Facilities – including waiting area, exam rooms, hospitalization ward, surgical and dentistry equipment, diagnostic imaging, and laboratory areas
- Feline patient handling and safety
- Client interaction
- Preventative care based on life stages
What does this mean for you and your cat? It means that Your Pet’s Wellness recognizes that all cats have very unique needs, and we are able to advise you and offer medical treatment for your cat based on that viewpoint. We are here to support your cat’s health in the areas of nutrition, environmental enrichment, behavior, routine checkups, and other issues that are essential to your cat’s happiness and wellbeing.
Furthermore, we have created a lower-stress environment for cats by training our staff how to approach and handle cats in a gentle and caring manner. We also use Feliway calming sprays and diffusers in our exam rooms and boarding facilities.
