Following the news in May that we had been classed as a Cat Friendly Clinic, we are now pleased to announce that Orchard Veterinary Centre has been accredited a Gold status Cat Friendly Clinic by the International Society for Feline Medicine (ISFM).
This means that we understand cats have specific needs, so we should care for them appropriately. We also have at least one “cat advocate” who can tell you all about our Cat Friendly Clinics and how they might benefit your pet, making their trip to the vet as stress-free as possible.
Our Cat Advocate, Danielle Day, said: “We are delighted that the ISFM have recognised the dedication of the team to ensure our feline patients get the best care that we can provide, with the most comfort and least stress.
“This has always been our aim, however we have implemented new protocols, have a dedicated cat procedure room and made changes in the practice e.g. the cat corner in the waiting room to ensure we continue to do so.
“We are committed to following the regularly updated guidelines of best practice of feline care by the IFSM.”
