Elevate the Delivery of Care

Elevate the Delivery of Care


The Cat Friendly Practice® program seeks to transform and elevate the delivery of feline veterinary care by:

  • Laying the groundwork for the delivery of care to the underserved feline population.
  • Identifying trends and baseline species information essential for understanding cats.
  • Acknowledging the essential role of the cat owner in the veterinary visit.
  • Providing support to veterinarians and their teams to create a cat-friendly practice environment.
  • Outlining strategies for introducing changes in the delivery of care that incorporate a better understanding of the cat's distinct needs and behaviors.

When a practice takes the steps to become a Cat Friendly Practice®, it creates a practice environment that values the feline patient's needs. At the heart of a Cat Friendly Practice® is the potential for building productive relationships with cat owners, which will result in improved care for the feline patient.
