Cat Friendly and Dog Friendly Practice

Cat Friendly and Dog Friendly Practice

Certified Cat Friendly Clinic

Dog Friendly Certification (coming soon)

We are very proud to be able to say that our Practice has reached the high standards required in order to be dog-friendly and cat- friendly.

By using reward-based (positive reinforcement) methods and appropriate handling techniques, the Dog-Friendly Scheme aims to reduce the stress and fear many dogs experience when visiting a vet practice. We aim from the welcome in reception to the consultation and treatment, to make the experience as comfortable as possible for both you and your pet. In addition, several of our registered nurses have received training in dog behavioural development.

As proof of our commitment to providing a cat-friendly environment, in 2021 we were awarded a Gold Certificate based on the International Society of Feline Medicine and International Cat Care’s recommendations for cat wellbeing within a veterinary practice.
