Cat Friendly Clinic

Find out more about our status as a Cat Friendly Clinic...

Paige with cat

We understand that taking a cat to the vets can be a stressful time for all involved. Due to their nature, cats become extremely uneasy when not in their ‘own’ territory.

We understand that there are unique difficulties in bringing a cat to a veterinary clinic:

In order to address these issues at Birchwood vets, we have teamed up with the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) to ensure that our practice is ‘Cat Friendly’.

We have been awarded a Silver Grade accreditation by the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) for our Cat Friendly Clinic. This means that we have reached a higher standard of cat care and we have adapted our clinic in order to promote cat well-being and exceptional standards of care for all cats visiting or being hospitalised at Birchwood Vets.

So what can you expect from our Cat Friendly Clinic?

We have a specifically trained ‘cat advocate’, who promotes and ensures the highest level of cat-friendly behaviour. Our cat advocates are happy to answer any questions and give guided tours of our cat friendly facilities.
