Filham Park Veterinary Clinic is currently trialling a set of ‘Cat Friendly’ consult times as part of making the veterinary consult experience less stressful for our feline friends.
The trial of cat friendly clinics started on the 15th January 2018 and so far has been well received with clients noticing a difference in their cats overall behaviour during the visit. During the clinics the practice is exclusively used by just our feline clients with appointments for dogs only available for emergencies. Feliway is used throughout the practice and the clinics are run by the same four members of staff: two vets, Oana and Cherish and two nurses, Ray and Kirsty to help cats build a better bond and ensure continuity for our clients.
The changes implemented are following guidelines set by the ISFM (International Society of Feline Medicine), a organisation devoted to improving the wellbeing of cats, providing better knowledge on the care of our feline patients.
If you are interested in taking part in this trial of cat friendly clinics please call our reception team on 01752 892700 who will be able to advise you on the time slots available.
