Cat Friendly Exam Rooms

Visits to the vet are often stressful for our feline friends.  We are well aware of this and strive to make your cat’s visit as pleasant as possible.  Some of the measures we are taking are listed below:

1.      For stressed individuals making a more efficient, “stream-lined” version of the typical wellness visit that involves weighing and collecting samples from your cat in the exam room, rather than taking him or her back into the often busy treatment area.

2.      Placement of Feliway diffusers and use of Feliway spray on our hands and clothing prior to handling your cat.  Feliway® is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone, used by cats to mark their territory as safe and secure. Feliway® helps create a state of familiarity and security in the cat’s local environment. As a result, it is used in our hospital to help comfort and reassure cats while they cope with challenging situations and can help prevent or reduce the stress caused by a change in their environment.

3.      Using our new Feline ICU for examination and monitoring of hospitalized patients in a quieter, calmer environment.
