Elevating Feline Care

The Cat Friendly Practice® (CFP), created by expert feline practitioners, equips you with the support and resources needed to deliver elevated and quality care that incorporates the cat's perspective throughout the entire experience. The program sets the standard for providing optimum feline care and guides you through creating a cat-friendly environment that reduces stress for cats, clients, and the entire veterinary team.

Many clients believe the common stereotype that cats often live to a ripe old age with minimal veterinary care, and more than 80% think that their cats are in excellent health and very self-sufficient.
