In order to achieve the title of a Cat Friendly Practice a veterinary hospital must achieve standards in eight categories developed by the American Association of Feline Practitioners. These standards are geared specifically towards a cats’ health and behavioral needs. These categories are: staff training, client communications, veterinary practice premises (noise and maintenance), receptionist area, feline handling, examination rooms, clinical records, and hospital area and medical equipment. Each category has several requirements. Throughout the years, the Patton Veterinary Hospital has maintained a high excellence in patient care and serving the pet parents within the community. Our desire is to continue this excellence by enhancing our cat appointments; this is to lessen the stress of the visit to you and your feline friend. What does all of this specifically mean for your next cat appointment -- read more.
CAT LIFE STAGES
The Feline Friendly Committee is comprised of several PVH staff members who are self- proclaimed “cat people!” As a team, we all like cats and many of us have 1 (or more!) of our own, but these few people are whiskers over tails, crazy in love with cats and want to help make your feline friend’s visit to PVH as enjoyable and comfortable of an experience as possible. The Feline Friendly Committee works together with the rest of the hospital staff to improve feline care and handling and educate clients on the ins and outs of caring for cats throughout all life stages.
