GOLD Cat Friendly Clinic status

The Island’s only GOLD standard Cat Friendly Clinic

Island VetCare has been awarded internationally-recognised GOLD Cat Friendly Clinic status

Island VetCare has been designed with you and your cat in mind. As a clinic we have proven that we adhere to a set of criteria, set out by International Cat Care, to ensure we provide and maintain a high standard of veterinary care.

This 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 practice boasts its separate dog and cat waiting areas, feline friendly hospitalisation cages and veterinary equipment specifically for treating cats.

Most importantly, staff are trained in approaching and handling cats sensitively and respectfully, and in maintaining high standards of veterinary care, including continuing to update their knowledge of feline medicine as new treatments and information become available.
