At Litchfield Veterinary Hospital, we understand the unique needs of our feline patients. We realize that cats don't always enjoy their visit to the veterinary hospital which makes owners reluctant to bring them in for routine care. As veterinary professionals we cannot stress the importance of routine or preventative care enough, it is valuable in ensuring good health and longevity in all of our patients. We value our clients concerns and have made a commitment to making veterinary care accessible and less stressful to both cat and owner.
Through the guidelines of the American Association of Feline Practitioners, we have successfully demonstrated that we qualify as a Cat Friendly Practice. Under these guidelines we have demonstrated the following:
- We understand the unique needs of cats and have made veterinary visits more cat friendly.
- We understand how to approach and handle cats in a gentle, empathetic and caring manner.
- We have an appropriate standard of equipment needed to investigate and treat feline diseases.
- We meet a standard for the facilities and care for hospitalized cats.
