Why you and your cat deserve a Cat Friendly Practice 



For some cats and owners, a trip to the veterinarian may be a cause for stress.  As a certified friendly practice we’ve given extra consideration to the care of your cat and their entire experience with us. As a Gold Certified Practice, our Quinpool location has made many cat friendly adaptations including staff members training on how to approach and handle cats in a gentle, empathetic and caring manner. 

We have even implemented physical adjustments to make the visit friendlier for you and your cat.  In the waiting room, we have a cat side to the waiting room.  There are tables off the ground to rest your cat carrier to that they will be up above any dogs in the clinic.  We have cat towers and scratching posts to offer greater comfort to your feline friend.  And that’s just the waiting area; our feline exam room is reserved for felines only so no dog odors exist.  We also spray with Feliway to sooth and calm cats.  We have mats for traction on the exam table too.  

The Cat Friendly Practice certificate on a veterinarian’s wall has to be earned. The practice must meet a cat_friendly_certificationcomprehensive checklist of performance criteria to verify that staff members are especially qualified and dedicated to making every visit as pleasant as possible and beneficial for you and your cat.

All of those various steps combine to help assure you that each visit is a positive experience. So when you see the CFP designation at our Quinpool location, you can be confident your cat will be given exceptional care and attention through all phases of the visit including examinations, procedures and hospitalization. Furthermore, the Cat Friendly Practice distinction shows that our Quinpool location has demonstrated higher levels of commitment and excellence in feline medicine.
