Cat Friendly Practice
Cat Friendly Veterinary Practice in Kennett Square, PA
In the United States, there are millions more owned cats than owned dogs, yet cats visit veterinarians less frequently. A major reason is that it is very stressful to take cats to the veterinary practice. The Cat Friendly Practice® (CFP) program, created by feline practitioners, provides a solution to this trend.
As a Cat Friendly Practice®, we have taken extra steps to demonstrate we understand your cat’s unique needs and care requirements.
The program is designed to:
- Help reduce the stress associated with veterinary visits.
- Understand how to approach and handle cats in a gentle, empathetic, and caring manner.
- Create a calming environment with you and your cat in mind.
- Meet standards for facilities and care of hospitalized cats.
Longwood Veterinary Center is a certified Cat Friendly Practice, so you can be confident your cat will be given exceptional care and attention through all phases of the visit including examinations, procedures, and hospitalization. It is our hope that by implementing these extra measures, we will be able to increase and improve the quality of life in our feline patients by being able to diagnose and treat illnesses earlier.
