We Are Feline Friendly Accredited by the ISFM at the Glen Iris Vet
We are very excited to announce that we have gained a silver accreditation from the International Society of Feline Medicine.
This means that our clinic meets a set of criteria aimed at reducing stress in cats, and includes:
Having a separate cat waiting area and consult room
Feline friendly hospital cages
Patients are hospitalised in a calm ward away from dogs
Under the programme, our clinic has had to prove rigorous adherence to a set of criteria which includes provision of facilities and demonstration of staff activities and attitudes aimed at reducing stress in cats, both as in-patients and out-patients. The criteria includes having separate dog and cat waiting areas, feline-friendly hospitalisation cages, and veterinary equipment specifically for treating cats. Most importantly, staff are encouraged to approach and handle cats sensitively and respectfully. Clinics are expected to maintain high standards of veterinary care, including continuing to update their knowledge of feline medicine as new knowledge becomes available.
These are just some of the ways that we aim to make your cat’s journey within our clinic as stress-free as possible.
