Cat Friendly Clinic


 
We are one of only four practices in Derbyshire recognised by the ISFM (International Society of Feline Medicine) as being a Cat Friendly Practice.

This is a scheme to make veterinary practices more ‘cat friendly’, reducing the stress of visits for both cats and owners. Vet Babs Ingram is our Cat Advocate.



We are committed to making your visit to our practice easier eg by having separate cat waiting areas. For our hospitalised felines friends, we have a separate cattery away from dogs, roomy, heated, glass fronted kennels to reduce the spread of air borne infections like cat flu, and perching boxes for them to sit on or hide under. We also have a separate isolation ward to nurse infectious kitties.


We also have ensured our equipment is suitable for cats - e.g. for measuring blood pressure, scanning cat hearts and tummies, doing cat dental work, an incubator for warming hypothermic cats, anaesthetic equipment and much more besides.

The Cat Friendly Scheme has many requirements besides these, for more information see here

ISFM (who were formerly know as the Feline Advisory Bureau) have produced a number of information leaflets, which can be viewed/downloaded here
