Had lots of helpful tips for creating a cat friendly practice without too many changes or needed expensive renovations, and showed that owners will be more willing to pay for veterinary services when they see the effort on our part has a relaxing effect on the cat patients.
Mrs Iris Sprayberry (17 Jan 2021)

Description

There are millions more owned cats than owned dogs in the U.S., yet cats visit veterinarians less frequently than dogs. Contributing to the decrease in cat visits is the stress associated with getting the cat to the veterinary practice, and owners who are unaware of the need for wellness and preventive care. The Cat Friendly Practice® program provides a solution to this trend and contains the tools for veterinary professionals to integrate a feline perspective and embrace the standards needed to elevate care for cats.

Objectives

• Reversing the trend of cat visits being on the decline.
• How adopting feline-friendly perspective helps veterinary professionals embrace standards needed to elevate care for cats.
• Strategies for reducing the stress associated with the veterinary visits for all part
