Medivet Quarrington achieves Cat Friendly Clinic accreditation by the International Society of Feline Medicine.
There's a rigorous set of criteria required to gain the accreditation, including the standard of facilities and staff activities and attitudes. The criteria includes having separate dog and cat waiting areas, feline-friendly cages and veterinary equipment specifically for treating cats. Most importantly, the staff take great care to handle cats sensitively and respectfully. The practice are also expected to maintain high standards of veterinary care, including continuing to update their knowledge of feline medicine as new knowledge becomes available.
Dr Irina-Andreea Titiliuc BvetMed (Hons) GPCert EM&S MRCVS and Rosemarie Foster RVN, the clinic's Cat Advocates, are proud to receive the clinic's Silver Standard Cat Friendly Clinic accreditation:
“We wanted to make sure that a trip to our clinic was a stress-free an experience as possible for our cat patients and their owners. Cats can get very anxious when taken out of their usual environment, and this can make owners reluctant to seek veterinary attention when their cats need it. By undertaking a Cat Friendly accreditation, we've committed to delivering high standards of cat care, with compassion and expertise”
Congrats to the Medivet Quarrington team for taking the next step to provide exceptional care in their community.
Just like humans, as your cat gets older they could start to experience health issues. Although regular health checks are important for all cats, they become increasingly important as your cat gets older. We’ve got advice on some of the more common conditions that can cause problems for older cats.
