Falkland Veterinary Clinic are delighted to announce we have achieved ISFM Silver Cat Friendly Status. Our team have worked extremely hard to make sure this clinic is cat-tastic!
The ISFM Cat Friendly Clinic accreditation is an internationally recognised award, our practice has to meet criteria to help minimise stress in your cat.
Our Cat Advocate, Marion Newman, says: “Cats can become very stressed as soon as they are taken out their own environment with their own scent & familiar surroundings, so we try to minimise this stress as much as possible. You will notice in our waiting room area we now have a separate cat waiting area with a cat stand for clients to place their cat baskets on whilst they wait. Cats like to be up high as they feel less vulnerable and we have provided blankets to cover the carriers as they tend to feel calmer when they are hidden”.
Within the practice our staff are aware of how stressed cats can get and we do everything we can to keep them calm whilst handling them within the hospital environment.

We look forward to welcoming you and your feline friends into the practice.
