Practice Guidelines

AAFP Practice Guidelines

The AAFP Practice Guidelines are intended to provide recommendations in order to provide guidance on the standard of feline care. Evidence-based support is cited wherever possible, but from time to time the panel of experts may have differing opinions as noted in a document, but will either form a consensus on the recommendations or will state divergent viewpoints based on empirical data if a consensus cannot be attained. These guidelines should be used as recommendations and each practitioner must decide on their own about the treatment protocols based on their professional judgment and an individual case basis for each patient.
