Our Cat Advocates
Nurses Joanne McCartney RVN & Diane Bain, the clinics “Cat Advocates”, were proud to receive this accreditation for Bay Vets and their hard work in gaining this accreditation was appreciated by all. They said “We wanted to make sure that a trip to see our Vets was a stress-free experience for our cat patients and their owners. Cats can get very anxious when taken out of their usual environment, and this can make the owners reluctant to seek Veterinary attention when their cats may need it. By undertaking the Cat Friendly Clinic Accreditation, we have committed to delivering the highest standard of cat care, with compassion and expertise”.
The International Society of Feline Medicine launched the Cat Friendly Clinic initiative to encourage Veterinary practices everywhere to make best efforts to improve the welfare of cats in their care. The programme advises practices on how to make their environment as welcoming to cats and their owners as possible, as well as providing support in staff training, handling techniques and cat specific client care.
